Growing up in a Christian home, I knew the story of the Gospel, but I never grasped it on my own. I started to follow the temptations of the world and fell deeper into sin when arriving at college. At the end of my sophomore year at Samford University, God used a close friend to show me my sin and need for Him. I attended a Summer Beach Project and was shown the seriousness of my sin, my need for Christ, and the love that God has for me. Romans 8:1-2, “There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death.” My life has been completely changed, and now I strive, through God’s Grace, to live for Him no matter the cost.
