The one who believes in the Son has life, but the one who rejects the Son shall not see (experience) life, but the indignation of God remains on him. (John 3:36)
At the formidable age of 16, I gave my life to Christ. I confessed my sins and asked Jesus Christ to be the Lord of my life, to lead me and guide me, to protect and comfort me, to correct me and teach me. He would be the most influential force in my life from here on.
