I was born and raised in the church but I lived under the notion that I could earn eternal life by my good works outweighing my bad deeds. I rejected the gospel on occasion because it contradicted that belief. The truth of the gospel struck me one day, however, and I became convicted that I was a helpless sinner and needed to rely on someone else, Jesus Christ, for eternal life. I have since, through God’s help, not only been led to rest in the promise of eternal life but to enjoy this life more.
