Although I was brought up in a Christian family, I did not fully understand
what it meant to have a personal relationship with God through Jesus until I
was in high school. At that time, my brothers and sister were active in church
and college ministry. They shared specifically how much God loved me and how
to be part of His family. At that point, I acknowledged my need for God and
a desire to share the Gospel with others.
Since becoming a Christian, many changes have occured in my life. One was enjoying
God's peace, knowing that He was in command, especially when circumstances were
difficult. Another was a willful decision to make a difference in other people's
lives, whether that be through words or deeds. We can not truly attain anything
apart from God, but I try to live faithfully, guided by John 13:34.
Today, I strive to be a good witness regardless if it is as a teacher, social
worker, athlete, friend, stranger, or brother.
What are two major changes
God has made in you since?
I have become more understanding of why things do not go my way. Also more tolerant
of different types of people.
"A new command I give to you: love one another. As I have loved
you, so you must love one another." John 13:34
