Before becoming a Christian, I had no purpose in life. I was tired of religion and all the 'holy' people. I didn't believe God cared for me.
I tried to come close to God, but felt separated from Him. I heard the living words of Jesus Christ through TWR, and the more I listened, the more I wanted to learn.
First, I thought Jesus Christ was like the other prophets. He wasn't crucified. But after listening over time, I told myself, I will now accept that He was crucified, but I cannot accept that He is the Son of God. With the help of God and the definitions given during the program about sensitive issues, this truth was slowly revealed to me.
I finally realized Christ is indeed the Son of God. I gave my heart to Him, and He changed my life. He gave me comfort and hope. From that time on, Christ became the captain of my ship.
When I realized all these things, I began to tell my friends and some of my family about Christ and Christianity. They told me I was wrong and that I was an apostate. They never even tried to see the freedom and joy I have. They called me pagan and laughed at me. They're closed to the truth, and they punished me with their words.
After a while, their comments bothered me very much so I decided to keep my faith a secret. All I had in the world was God and Jesus. I always prayed at bedtime and He always answered.
In my first year of high school, I got to know 2 girls who were in the same situation I had been in before I became a Christian. They were confused and worried. After one year, when I realized we sincerely were friends and I could trust them, I shared my faith in Christ with them. They opened the door of their hearts and invited Jesus in.
Now I have at least 2 friends who are Christians. They have the same purpose in life as I have. Together we listen to TWR. We have never been to church nor seen a pastor, but with this program I believe we're a church for Christ.
As Jesus said, "Where two or three of you are gathered in my name, there I am in the midst."
