Taking Jesus and his words seriously meant serious change in my life, especially in the way I think of..everything. I see a lot in myself that definitely doesn't come from my own will. I've always been stressed by academic performance since young, but Jesus' words in the Bible made me realise the infinite weight of eternity and how my life must not be defined by my grades, job security, money, relationships etc. I still fall into the trap of worrying, but I know I'm safe in God's arms and I don't have to worry about my life.
Jesus has also changed the way I treat other people. My natural instinct is to be self-centred and only care about people I like, but how I treat others now is always challenged by the question:" If Jesus who is the boss of my life loved this person so much that he would give his life on that painful cross, how should I treat him/her?"
Everything changes because I know that I don'tt deserve His love for me in the first place, and yet I have true life, which Jesus says is knowing God, given to me unconditionally and is guaranteed forever.
