Steve’s Testimony

I was a drug addict and adulterer, unable to see anything but immediate gratification.  I thought I could deal with anything that life could throw at me.  I was wrong. Despite my best efforts, my life fell apart around me.  I lost my job, my home, my family; everything that was truly important. Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.  I was urged by my fiancé’ to pray to Jesus, even when I didn’t believe.  It took 2 months for a response I could see.  He led me to a place where He could work on me.  You see I am a very logic-minded person, and I couldn’t find my PROOF, outside of religious text, that Jesus existed.  Without proof I wouldn’t believe and without belief I felt it had NO faith.  No faith meant to me, that I could not be saved.  Through prayer, study of the word, and conversations with the resident Chaplains, this stumbling block was removed from my path.  I am here today, new and clean, and wanting nothing but to do His work, for His glory.  Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God not as a result of works, that no on should boast.   Steve
