Prior to coming to faith in Jesus Christ, my identity was completely focused on the physical realm, and I was governed by my five senses. I was young and unrestrained, believing I was free to live however I wanted to without consequences. The reality that I didn’t understand was that I was alienated from God. I was a foreigner and stranger from God’s Kingdom with no spiritual understanding.
When I heard the gospel and became a believer, I had no idea what a change that would make in my life. I am still learning about who I am in Christ. Scripture is the primary source of discovery, but God has many other ways of teaching as I trust the Lord to work in me to accomplish His purpose. My primary objective is to surrender all I am and have to Him and His Kingdom. I am thankful that I am no longer a foreigner and stranger, but a member of God’s household.
