The Greatest Story Ever Told is all about the love of Jesus Christ and how He went from heaven to earth. As He was preparing to go the cross, He chose to spend an intimate evening with the twelve disciples to observe Passover, which is a celebration of the God Who was, Who is and Who is to come.
After converting his faith to Christianity, a man was asked the reason he left the religion of Islam. He said, “Well, it’s like this. I came to a fork in the road. One path led to Islam, where I would be following Mohammad. The other path led to Christianity, where I would be following Jesus. One is dead and the other is alive. I chose to follow the One who lives.
I grew up in a Christian household learning about God, and was going to church every week, but never learned nor desired anything about God. I would try to read, pray, worship, but never found a real relationship with God. During my school years, I would get into trouble a lot, and would hang out with the wrong crowds, which caused a lot of problems. If there was one word that would describe what I was looking for that caused most actions that I had done during that time…it was attention.
As a child I was raised in Catholicism and I was taught to know God through a priest. I did not know God’s love growing up even though he was watching out for me. Living in a broken home, I always felt lonely. I had a step father who was kind to me but abusive to my mom. After my parents divorced, I was left without a father.
