I sometimes despair about what is called Christianity. Churches and Christians disappoint you at some point, if you live this faith for very long. Yet I still confess my deeply held Christian faith in “one, holy, Catholic and apostolic church” every Lord’s Day. I would not think of living such a life without the church. This is why I pray for the church and minister to her and within her, that she might be truly converted to Christ alone. But I pray this same prayer for myself too, that I will be truly converted to Christ every single day.

A wise writer once said: “The greatest service that could be rendered to the Christian peoples would be to convert them to Christianity.” I agree. Conversion is what each of us needs. Conversion is not a once-for-all event, but a daily experience by the grace and work of the Spirit. Are you being converted to Christ?
