There was a time in my life in which I lived totally for self. It was happy hour every evening on the way home from work. It was country club all weekend long. I had very little time for my wife and family. Eventually my lifestyle caught up with me and I ended up divorced, broke, unemployed, and living in a run-down travel trailer in a run-down fish camp.
It was at this time I ran into some old friends I used to party with. They invited me over for dinner. When they prayed over their food I knew something was different. They told me of their relationship with Christ and explained how I could have one too. They invited me to their church. Again I heard how I could have this new relationship with Christ if I would turn from my sins and ask Christ to rule my life. After three weeks I finally let go and answered the invitation to receive Christ.
After receiving Christ as my Lord and Savior, things took on a new meaning to me. All of a sudden my family and my job was important to me. It wasn’t long before the Lord restored to me all I had lost and life became better than ever. Following Christ was the most important life-changing thing that has ever happened to me. What about you?
