How did you come to Christ? Not so long ago I posted this very question on Facebook. Some stated they new at an early age; as young as 3 years old. Some were raised in the church, some had to endure a lot of mishaps, for some it was the only way to overcome addictions, some took a long time because they were okay, and others on their death bed before they accepted. Not one regretted their decision and commitment.
In a video post I shared my story and struggle. I came to Christ for food. Not spiritual food, the eating kind of food. I was literally starving and didn’t know where my next meal was coming from. Employment wasn’t the issue, housing and self-esteem were. My high wasn’t in recreational drugs, but in promiscuity. Each time I share this story it doesn’t get any easier or less embarrassing, but I want people to know that they are not alone and that we have victory (1 Corinthians 15:57) in the God we serve through the saving grace of Jesus Christ, (Ephesians 2:8-9)
At the age of 27 I dived in to my baptism believing the changes would be so much more immediate than they were, but we play a role in making our life changes. The transformation (Romans 12:2) begins when we get plugged in to a church, (Hebrews 10:25), start living life with an eternal purpose, reading our Bible, studying our Bibles, (Job 22:21 & Matthew 6:33) and telling people the good news (Matthew 28:19-20) and serve one another in love (Galatians 6:10).
