I am blessed to have been raised in an environment where my whole family loved and served the Lord. I was saved at a young age after realizing my need for a savior. Unfortunately, that’s where it stopped for me. I was content just knowing that I was going to heaven and made no effort to know and love my creator and savior. I had no practical knowledge of what my new identity in Christ actually meant for me as a child of God. In bringing me to first year and then second year, God slowly began to get a hold of my heart. He has grown and changed me in ways I could never have imagined. I am definitely a work in progress, and I certainly have by no means ‘arrived’, but I do know this, my identity is in Jesus Christ, and I am dead to sin and alive to God.
