I grew up going to church every Sunday with a knowledge of Jesus Christ. Although my life, was not centered around Him or the grace that he offered me. I lived a very moral life into my freshman year of college. My first year of college, I went to a fall retreat and heard the Gospel and soon after I then was invited to a bible study as I began to learn more about who Christ was and the effect that He had on those who followed Him. As I have looked back, I see now that even though I could recite the Gospel and tell you about Jesus, my life was centered around relationships, but not the relationship that actually mattered. In high school and a portion of my freshman year in college I constantly longed to find that relationship that would fill the void in my heart.
After facing disappointment after disappointment, Christ finally opened my eyes. My freshman year I gave my heart to Christ and have spent each and everyday since then living in light of what Christ has done for me. I see now how radically He changed my life that year and that no matter how morally I lived growing up, it would never be enough. I finally saw my need for a Savior despite my best efforts not too. I am thankful that He has justified me in the sight of God and that my life is new and restored in Christ’s love for me.
