A Defining Moment

"I was a young man when I made a decision to receive Jesus as my Savior and begin to follow Him. At that point, most of what I believed I accepted in theory—including my own sinful nature. However, early in those years as a new believer, I experienced my own personal moral failure that became a turning point for me. I came face-to-face with the reality of who I was (am) as part of a fallen race. But I also experienced first-hand the grace, mercy and forgiveness of Jesus in the manner in which I was led through a process of redemption. C.S. Lewis once wrote, “Until a man experiences the reality of his sin, in the form of pain, he lives in an illusion.” In the lifetime that has followed that experience, I find myself waking up each day into the wonder of the Gospel and its transforming power."
