If you decide to become a follower of Jesus, what happens next? Do you just turn up to church on Sundays, sing some songs, say some prayers, put some money in the plate, and then live the rest of the week just like everybody else? Everyone knows it’s not supposed to be that way, but what should an authentic Christian lifestyle look like?
This is a question that has bothered me for a long time, and this website is part of a journey to find answers. What am I supposed to do when a homeless guy stops me in the street and asks for money? What am I supposed to do at work if my payrise is less than I expected? What am I supposed to do when someone gossips to me about other people behind their backs? What am I supposed to do about the fact that 800 million people are going to bed hungry tonight, and although I don’t have enough money to feed all of them, I probably do have enough money to feed several hundred?
My name is John. I live in Melbourne, Australia. I am an author, lawyer, patent attorney, and IT consultant. I am a qualified helicopter pilot and an avid reader. My contemporary translation of the New Testament and my daily video readings of each chapter of the New Testament can be found at http://biblefreshdaily.com. I regularly visit Africa and support the work of the Dagoretti Corner Self-Help Group, assisting people who are living in poverty.
I look forward to sharing the journey with you.
