Showing God in action in and through His people.
I went through chemo treatments for cancer a year and a half before my freshman year of college.
Through this season of life-and-death situations, I began thinking: What would happen to me if I lived? Or where would I go if I died?
Those questions were on my mind when I moved into the dorms as a freshman at Oregon State University. And immediately, my Resident Advisor began inviting me to Bible studies and Campus Crusade (CRU) weekly meetings.
I had never really heard the gospel message of salvation before, so I was eager to learn about God. I went to these CRU events with the expectation that I would find answers to my nagging questions.
I will never forget one specific night in October of my freshman year. I was sitting at a weekly CRU meeting, and a guy was up front talking about the difference between “having Christ in your life” and “not having Christ in your life.”
As I listened, I could relate to everything he said to describe life without Christ. I knew that although I had been going to Bible study and learning about God at CRU meetings, I did not have Christ in my life.
Then he explained what it’s like to have Christ in your life. I wanted everything that he described. I was ready to ask Jesus to come into my life.
That night I prayed and accepted Christ’s death on the cross as the payment for my sin. I accepted His love and forgiveness. And not only did I look forward to experiencing life with Christ, but I also knew that I would experience Christ -- after death -- for eternity.
I love telling others the story of my own spiritual journey from life-without-Christ to life with Christ. Often, I can connect with other peoples’ stories as I share about my health, nagging questions, and decision to ask Christ to come into my life.
And I find no greater joy than seeing others make that same decision to accept God’s free gift of salvation by asking Jesus to come into their lives.
