The Bible is a collection of 66 books with different genres, written by over 40 different authors who were farmers, fishermen, tentmakers, homeless prophets, doctors, scribes, musicians, and pastors, in the span of over 1500 years, on 3 different continents, and written in 3 different languages.
I accepted Jesus Christ in the 1970s, after my sister in law became a Christian. Then, my husband and children started attending a Baptist Church, were I was baptized, but then I started to slack off. I realize I needed Jesus in my life after I was going through so many trials, illnesses and murder.
I wasn’t raised a Christian I never knew much about Jesus or church. I came to this country and was introduced into drugs and alcohol and quickly began a life of criminal activity and a life of hurting those around me emotionally and hurting strangers physically.
Before I found God, I was an alcoholic, a drug addict, and a womanizer. In Sept. of 2012, I ran into a girl I used to know 20 years ago, and I think she was heaven sent, because she saved my life.
When I was a little kid, my mother planted spiritual seeds by getting down on her knees and praying. She went to church on Sundays and communion class. When I was 16, I started drinking beer. For a long time, I would finish high school and drink beer.
I am glad someone was praying for me because I know some of those choices I made were not chance. So today, I pray for my family and friends. Because you never know how your prayers will affect someone close to you, when comes to following Jesus Christ.
I was born and brought up in a Hindu family in India. As a Hindu, I respected all faiths and thought all different paths will lead to God Almighty. I left India in 1968 and lived in Hong Kong for the next thirty years. I kept on practicing Hindu religion all along.
Growing up, I do recall of some things I wanted to become when I grew up. I wanted to be a super hero at one point, a fireman, ball player, and the list goes on. I remember the promises, plans and dreams I had along the way. But as I was growing up, I never once thought of what my purpose in life would be.
I didn’t grow up knowing the Lord. So, when I came to Christ, I learned that there was a different kind of life.
Now, I am a new creation and a witness that Christ did this. I don’t want to smoke anymore. I don’t want to listen to the same rappers I used to listen to. I make rap for the Lord now and I changed my entire life. Most importantly, I am a committed father and husband to my family – something I could only be with Christ in me.
