Jason C.’s Story

sf_whereIAm_03 (Custom)What was your life like before you met Christ? * I was blessed to be raised in Church. My mom took me from a very young age. She read Bible stories to me when I was young. I was surrounded by people who knew and loved Jesus. Yet I hadn’t trusted Him as my Savior yet.

How did you come to Christ? * I was 11 years old when I was attending a revival service at our church. I don’t remember anything the preacher said that night. But I remember falling under the conviction of the Holy Spirit. I knew the gospel because I had been taught it. But that night I heard Jesus calling out to me to follow Him. I went home and told my mom. And the next day we went and talked to the Pastor and he explained to me how I needed to respond to Jesus with faith and repentance. And right there in his office, I prayed and asked Jesus to forgive me and to be my Lord and Savior.

What is your life like now in Christ? *    After I came to know Christ, God put people in my life to help me grow. They helped keep me from much sin and many painful decisions. Because of God’s grace I didn’t go down a lot of those painful, broken roads-and I’m so grateful for it. And Christ is still working on me today. I’m not where I need to be or want to be, but His mercy and grace are still powerfully at work in my life. He’s blessed me with a great family, friends, and a wonderful church family. I can’t help but say with the Psalmists, “Come and hear, all you who fear God, and I will tell what He has done for my soul” (Ps. 66:16).
