How Johnny found Jesus!

Seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.

Matthew 7:7

Johnny was a teenager who lived in a big city. Computer games filled his spare time. At the age of 15 he was addicted to them. He then started taking drugs with his friends. Occasionally he became involved in a fight. He left school and one day was arrested for again causing bodily harm.

That was not the life that Johnny had wished for. He slid into depression. Later he began thinking about God. Did He exist? He switched on his computer and started googling. Much that he found failed to satisfy him. Theological articles and arguments, different statements of faith from various churches and sects – that was not what he sought.

Finally, he hit on a homepage that gave not simply religious opinions; the explanations always referred to the Bible. God’s dealings and the Person of Lord Jesus were an integral part of the text. Johnny sensed: “This is what I’ve been looking for”. He read on for hours. Some of his questions were clarified; but new ones arose. He availed himself of the sender’s offer, send him an E-mail and eagerly awaited the response. It was not just a short message but detailed answers to his questions. Again, the explanations were based on the Bible, the Word of God.

Now a regular exchange of messages started. Johnny found what he had been seeking. He did what the Bible said. He confessed his sins before God and by faith accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior. Now that he joyfully follows Christ, his life is completely changed and makes sense.
