God Saves Unlikely People

Daniel Kidd writes:

I was your "typical guy" before Christ, caring only about one thing. My life was filled with pornography, lust, drinking, cussing, and pretty much whatever my sinful flesh desired (Ephesians 2:3). I could not have cared less about Christianity. I had gone to church for a season and even said I was a Christian, but my lifestyle didn't change at all. I was in danger of hearing Jesus tell me, on that last day, that he never knew me (Matt. 7). Something had to change, and it did.

While in my sophomore year of high school, I met the girl who became my wife. As we dated, she brought me to church. Though I cheated on her several times, She was an example of God's grace as she stayed with me. Roughly a year after our wedding I finally became a Christian and began to grow.

So the point of my story is this: God's grace can bring some of the most disgusting individuals to a saving knowledge of Him. He fixed my broken relationship with him. My wife showed me major grace but Christ showed me so much more. 

But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8).

This is my story. And now I am changed, I am no longer a slave to this world but a slave to the King Jesus Christ. This is my life now:

I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me (Galatians 2:20).

Since my conversion, Crossing Church has helped me continue to grow. My walk with the Lord continues and I am so thankful for the men that he uses at Crossing.
