I accepted Jesus as my savior at the age of 14. I am thankful that I heeded the call of the Holy Spirit that November day in church. At the age of 21, I read through the Bible completely. Two things profoundly struck me when I read the Bible. One, is that God loves us, and two, He is a just and holy God. Since that time I have a deep respect for the Lord knowing that He loved me enough to send Jesus to die for my sins, but also that sin should be the exception in my life and not the rule because He is holy. Now, at the age of 38, I want to be in the will of God, and allow Him to put me in a position where I can be most effective for His purpose.
