My story began as a broken and insecure teen/young adult striving for love and acceptance. For me, faith was about an obligation and had nothing to do with a relationship (don’t get me wrong, I didn’t smoke crack).
I went to mass on some Sundays, but honestly my life looked nothing different than the world. Something happened when I was 19. Something incredible.
I met Him.
I met a Lover who called me. He called me “good” while I was still immersed in my brokenness and weakness. He invited me on a journey of a life surrendered totally to Him.
When I found Christ, I found myself.
What does it mean to Be His?
Like my story, all of our stories begin with an invitation – an invitation to a radical life given totally to Christ. A radical life lived for anything other than “self” is hard for many to grasp. Why? Because we live in a world with an identity crisis – we don’t know who we are or whose we are.
Your identity in Christ is the foundation for the Christian life, an entrance into the story of a God who seeks His beloved even to the point of death.
Do you know that Love?
Do you know that Person?
Have you given your life to Him?
