I have three Super Bowl rings, but nothing compares to knowing Jesus Christ. I first became a Christian at a young age, but for all the wrong reasons. I was afraid and did not want to go to hell. I did not fully understand the love of God. I went to church, but only because I had to. I knew right from wrong, and felt guilty when doing wrong, but I did not follow Jesus wholeheartedly.
It wasn’t until I was married with kids that I made the decision to change my relationship with Him. The challenges of being a husband and father, plus the tragedy of losing my own father, caused me to realize that I need Christ’s help and strength to be the man I need to be. I am not perfect, but Jesus says He will erase my mistakes and make me pure and clean. Today, I still experience ups-and-downs in life, but in Christ I have peace, joy and true happiness.
