“She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins” (Matthew 1:21).
When Jesus saved me in my early twenties, I not only wanted saved from hell, but saved from my sins. I wanted my sins forgiven, but also my sins stopped. I wanted my eternal life to be better, but also my earthly life to be better. I was disgusted with my past and desperate to be different.
As I encountered Jesus in the Bible and through sermons, I knew he, and only he, could change me. Inside and out. Now and forever. And he did. His Story changed my story.
He can change yours too. Listen for how.
