My Christian faith influences everything in my life and it’s a frequent topic in my blog posts, so I’d like to share with you a little more about what I believe and how I became saved.
Growing up in the South, going to church on Sunday is part of the culture. Saying prayers before dinner or before bed was just another requirement on the checklist of being a Christian. I went to Vacation Bible School and participated in the Christmas plays, but I was still missing the most important part. In fact, I had always felt like there was something missing in my life.
During my freshman year of college, I joined a campus ministry and Bible study to see once and for all if this Christianity thing was the real deal. As it turns out, I realized what I had been missing: a relationship with God through His son, Jesus Christ.
In obedience to the command from my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, I was baptized on Easter Sunday April 24, 2011. I’d like to say that being dunked under the water on that day saved me once and for all, but that’s not how it works. Baptism is just an outward sign of an inward change.
For me, that inward change has been a transformation that takes place daily, as I learn that He must increase and I must decrease (John 3:30). He truly is the reason for everything, and I am not worthy of His saving grace. I strive to make Him known, so if you have any questions, please email me!
