While I was a first year student at Voorhees College, my father, a pastor, was instrumental in bringing the Cru team to my hometown for the first time. Our family was the only family they knew in Vellore, India.
That year I took a friend of mine to visit a Cru staff member. We went to his room and the staff member shared the Four Spiritual Laws booklet with us.
My father, who was a very committed pastor, would always share about the message of salvation, God's love and all of that. But it was the fourth law, that I had to personally ask Christ into my life by faith to know for sure that I am child of God, that struck me. The Four Spiritual Laws gave me an opportunity to do that.
Also, I had always pictured God as someone great, God Almighty, so huge. I would think, "He's so great, why in the world would God think about someone like me, so tiny, nowhere. Let alone have a personal plan for my life."
I learned that not only does God love me, but He has a wonderful plan for my life. I knew that if this great God, who I have heard so much about, if He has a plan for my life, than it would be a really great plan.
That day I recited the prayer at the end of the Four Spiritual Laws like any other prayer I prayed before. Then the staff member gave me a copy of the book How You Can Be Sure You Are a Christian.
The next day I went upstairs in my home and knelt as I read through the book. This time when I prayed, I wanted Christ to come into my life. When I came off my knees I knew I was a child of God.

If you are reading this and for some reason you hate God, and you feel alone, know that He is constantly loving you. He will turn the situation around. Therefore, choose God as He chooses you.
It could be said that I grew up in the church, however, my heart was not entirely in it.
