My faith story
Many turn to God because of great problems. I had no such. Outwardly, everything was even better than other had. Gold Medal in high school, honours degree in university, good job. I didn't drink alcohol, didn't smoke cigarettes, didn't ..., didn't ..., didn't ... However, a human does not need you convince him of the fact that he is a sinner. He knows about it perfectly himself. Out conscience is God's voice that gives us no rest. Someone douses it with alcohol, another one do it with feigned indifference. However, you cannot run away from yourself. Sooner or later, everyone asks himself: 'What is my life's meaning?' To find the answer to this question, the life given to a person and then, as apostle Paul said, we will be up before Judgement Seat and it will be of no use to justify ourselves and too late to make decisions.
I am thankful to my God that He gave me a chance to hear His Word and to believe in the truth of it. It happened in June 1997 at Victory Church. I had came there 'just to look'. And what I'd seen? The Life! Just the life in all its fullness, as it ought to be. I'd understood that this place is the one where a person needs to be - the place of relations with God. He has created us exactly for this purpose (no matter how strenuously we trying to convince ourselves in the reverse). In that day, 29 June 1997, I had understood that Jesus is really the Way, the Truth and the Life. I had took a step forwards, admit myself a sinner who needs God's forgiveness, and He has forgave and received...
Since then, a lot of years have passed by. Now, looking back, I can say that every step, even the difficult one, was saved by God's hand. I cannot attribute to myself and my accomplishments nothing of what I have in my life - neither education nor books, musical talent, material well-being, wonderful family. Life with God is a life, indeed, because nobody cannot separate me now from the love of God given through Jesus Christ.
May all the glory be to Him!
