I used to think, Why I am here and where will I go from here?

I was not satisfied in my life and was searching for meaning and reality of our existence in this world. I used to think, Why I am here and where will I go from here?

One day a gentleman visited our home. He shared the story of God, the creation of the world and mankind. He told how man had sweet fellowship with God but then fell into sin, and ever since then Satan has been trying to deceive and enslave mankind.

He also shared that man is searching in vain for meaning in life by doing good or bad deeds. But man cannot be saved by his efforts. This sounded as if God had sent him to me to convey that God loves me. We became friends and I shared that I was searching for meaning in life by practicing witchcraft. He helped me to understand the dangers of playing into the hands of evil spirits. I asked him to pray for the salvation of my soul. He led me to confess all my past evil deeds and asked me to receive God’s salvation through Jesus Christ. I did, and I felt a strange peace in my heart.

Now I am learning more about this new life in Christ. I am also sharing my experience with others. Really, God loves sinners and he is ready to forgive them. He can change the life of any person.
