Turning from Religion to Jesus

Scripture: John 8:36

Topics: Freedom, Good Works, Gospel, Sin

“When I sinned I wouldn’t tell anybody; I would hide it, and I would try pretend like I was perfect. . . . Finally . . . in a church service, I just started crying and just realized that the gospel was real and just kind of heard it for the first time. . . .Trying to be good just doesn’t work anymore, and you realize that there’s a better way—and that way is through realizing that Jesus died on a cross for everything that you’ve done, and all you have to do is just put your trust in Him. It’s . . . freeing.”
