Jesus said, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me."
All of my life I have known of God and His son Jesus Christ. Over a decade ago I was baptized and I accepted Jesus as my Savior and only as my Savior. That day I rose from the water the same man who went down. A man who had no intentions on following Christ and every intention on trying to live this life according to my own will. Every dark road I've ever been down has led me to sadness and loneliness. For a long time I ignored every attempt God made to pull me out of darkness. No matter where I was or what I was doing, God found some way to remind me that He was still there. Finally, I had had enough and could not go on. This time when Jesus came looking for me, I surrendered and He pulled me from the life I had chosen for myself. I looked to Jesus who gave me comfort and rest. Every sin I've ever committed or ever will commit, He took upon Himself so that I may have life. No matter what I face, He is with me. I believe that Jesus Christ is the promised Messiah. I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sins. I believe that Jesus rose again, and the Jesus we learn of and from in the Bible is the same Jesus that lives today. I believe that Jesus is the way, the truth and the life, and that no one comes unto the Father except through Him.
