I can't believe how much my life has changed in just a few weeks! Some friends from our high school football team invited me to go along to this camp. I figured, why not? Mountain hiking and rappelling sounded like a blast, and my buddies and I could run some hills to help us get ready for football.
Guess what? I did the Jesus thing! I always thought I was tough and could fight my way out of anything, but this speaker at camp made it clear that I couldn't fight my way out of my sin problem. Hell-no! Heaven-yes! Made sense to me!
What didn't make sense was that when I got home some other guys from the team called me to go party, I said no. They wanted to get wasted, but I said no. This was what I used to do, but somehow I knew I should stop doing it. Why? Where were these new thoughts and ideas coming from?
When I told this to the guys at the Bible study I'd started going to, they explained to me that when you get Jesus in your life, you also get the Holy Spirit in you. This freaked me out a little bit at first, but now that I've experienced it and ahve read about it in the Bible, it's really cool.
That's how God's Story became My Story. Check back with me. I think it's gonna get even better.
