What was life like before you met Jesus?
Before I met Christ, I was trying to fill a hole that only he could fill. When I was younger it consisted of just doing the best I could in school, but when I went to college I started to try to fill that hole with relationships. No matter how hard I tried to fill the emptiness inside of me nothing truly satisfied me.
How did you meet Jesus?
I truly met Christ for the first time when I was at my darkest point. I had just walked away from an abusive relationship, and was lost in a lot of hurt and pain. After attending campus ministries that night, all I remember is crying out to Jesus. However, it wasn’t until I came to Salt Company in 2020 that I truly decided to follow Christ.
After being saved by Jesus, what is your life like now?
Christ is the only one that has satisfied that emptiness I once felt inside. One of my favorite verses is Ephesians 2:4-10, it paints a beautiful picture and reminder of both who God is and the gospel itself.
“But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”
