“We were Christians in name only”

March 28, 2024

“I went to church every Sunday, but I was far from God.”

That’s the beginning of a story we heard from Maria in Honduras. Here’s more:

“Religion was important to my family growing up. We went to church every Sunday and followed the rituals, but something was missing. We were Christians in name only. Our family was loud, rude, and often mean. When I married, I promised myself I would change that. For a few years my husband and I attended the same church as my parents, then I heard your program and everything changed. For the first time I learned that a life lived with God was not about attending church, but about a relationship with Him. I was surprised to find I could turn to Him with my joys, my sorrows, and my sins. My husband and I began to listen together and soon we welcomed two children into our family. Through your messages and the grace of God our family is gentle, kind, and loving. Thank you for helping us know Him and live a full and pleasing life in His service.”

Praise God that as we come to know Him intimately our lives are transformed. Pray as THRU the BIBLE goes out today more people set aside their rituals and learn the joy of spending time in His presence.

Who is Jesus to you? Join us tomorrow as a listener in Democratic Republic of Congo answers that important question.
