“Everything got started in Him and finds its purpose in Him” Colossians 1:16b (Msg)
Andrei Bitov, a Russian novelist, grew up under an atheistic communist regime. But God got his attention one dreary day.
He recalls,”In my twenty-seventh year, while riding the metro on Leningrad (now St. Peterburg) I was overcome with despair so great that life seemed to stop at once, preempting the future entirely, let alone any meaning. Suddenly, all by itself, a phase appeared: Without God life makes no sense. Repeating it in astonishment, I rode the phase up like a moving staircase, got out of the metro and walked into God’s light”
You discover your identity and purpose through a relationship with Jesus Christ.
its not about me but God.
