My name is Daniel Arcuri, I’m 20. I was born and raised in a Christian family and I’ve heard the Word of God since I was a child. Growing up, I found the biblical taught merely interesting and I struggled to put what I listened in practice. This fact demoralized me a lot. I felt lacking towards God so I just drifted apart, thinking it was the easier solution. I began living my life my own way, but nonetheless I didn’t completely abandon the Church, because going there made me feel right with my conscience. I was always more positive I’d never paid any consequence this way, but things have not turned out that way. I was looking for happiness in everything the world could offer, always looking for something better; but I didn’t know it’d have been an endless research, because true happiness is only in Jesus Christ. He’s the One who can fill the emptiness in your heart, because He’s Perfect.The moment I realized I was wrong, it was when I took part to an only man convention. It was explained what the human nature and its pride were. I thought a lot during those days, about my situation with God and first of all my need of Him. In that occasion, the Lord talked to my heart through the Bible (His Word) and I couldn’t help but praying and asking His forgiveness. I came back home from that convention full of joy, I recognized I’d found what I’ve always been looking for: the peace in my heart. From that moment on, however, my life hasn’t been any easier.Following Christ takes sacrifice, but with Him by my side I’m afraid of nothing because I know there’s no trial I cannot ride out. Living without Christ means living without hope. Living with Christ instead, gives you the assurance of salvation and the hope you’ll be with Him in heaven one day.
Infact,in John 3:16-17 it’s written: “ For God so loved the world that He gave His One and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him” .
God’s love is perfect. It doesn’t judge. And if you go to Him with a sincere heart, He’s ready to forgive all your sins, giving you salvation.
