Get Back to the Basics. The ABC’s of Christianity

What does it mean to “Get back to the basics?” Here’s a question for you: Have you lost the love you had at first? Revelation 2:4 says, “Yet I hold this against you: You have lost the love you had at first.” Maybe it’s the love you once had for your family, maybe it’s your faith, maybe it’s for something else you used to be passionate about. If your answer is yes, you have lost the love you had at first, then maybe it’s time to get back to the basics!

When you’re a child, you learn the basics first. You learn your ABC’s, and that is the basis for all of your communication for the rest of your life. It’s the same thing for Christianity. We can use the ABC’s of Christianity to get back to the basics and regain the love we had at first! Here’s my journey of coming to Christ through the ABC’s of Christianity.

The ABC’s of Christianity
A: Admit
The first step is to admit that we are wrong. To be real about our faults and that we need Jesus. Admit we need to change and that we need conversion. When I had my conversion at 17 years old, I had to admit my faults and wrongdoing. I went to confession and admitted everything. Admitting our weaknesses, and that we need conversion gives us the freedom to lean on Jesus every single day.

B: Believe
On the retreat where I had my conversion, there was Eucharistic Adoration. I believed that Christ was real in the Eucharist. I gave him my life, and I believed that he could change me. The second step to get back to the basics, is to believe what Christ says about us. That we are forgiven, and that Christ can change the world through us. I prayed a prayer in my heart that went like this “Jesus, you died for me, I’ll die for you”. And I meant it! I believed it with my whole heart. We have to believe in the power of Jesus Christ.

C: Commit
Commit your entire life to Jesus Christ. After my conversion, I had more fire than ever. I committed with my whole heart to bring people to Jesus, and with his grace I haven’t lost the love I had that day since my first day of my conversion. It hasn’t been perfect, but I did my best to evangelize since that day. And Christ took that commitment and has used it.  Get back to the basics today, and admit, believe and commit!

Pray this prayer to get back to the basics:

Lord Jesus, I’m sorry for my sins. I admit my failings, and that I am in need of your grace. I believe that you are real. I believe that you can change me. Change my life today. I commit my life to you Jesus. Amen.
