Hi! My name’s Steve Collier. I’m 29 years old and I’m married to Imogen. I’m a minister in the Church of England and am currently Curate at All Saints’ Church here in Isleworth, London.
Have you ever met anyone who has a passion for something? I mean a real, deep-seated passion? Like that’s the only thing they really ever think or talk about? Think about Joey from F.R.I.E.N.D.S – he has a passion – food! I wonder how many scenes there are where Joey is talking about food?
I also have a passion. His name is Jesus. But whereas Joey doesn’t want to share food, I do want to share Jesus! In fact, I can’t resist! I don’t feel duty-bound to share Jesus. I don’t feel burdened to share Jesus. I’m not embarrassed to share Jesus. I can’t think of anything else I’d rather do with my time! You see, in 2005 something happened to me. I saw who Jesus really was, and my heart was changed forever. Now my heart has been so affected, my emotions so stirred, that Jesus is in all my thoughts, both waking and sleeping, and it’s wonderful.
That’s what I want to share with you.
