How did you first hear about Jesus? How did you come to believe that Jesus died for your sins?
Well, I was raised in a Catholic family, and everyone else at home is Catholic except for me and my younger brother. Since my childhood, I always knew that Christ died for me, but that didn’t just make sense. I mean, it was just a fact that didn’t mean anything to me. It just didn’t apply for my own life, if you know what I mean.
But this other day, I was back home flipping—playing with the radio, turning from one station to another. There was a preacher there on one of the radio stations, talking about the Bible. I got interested. I wanted to know more about the Bible.
So I started listening to that radio station like every day, and I eventually—what’s the word—I was able to tell which program comes at what time, and there was this guy I listened to before who got my attention, and I was listening to him every other day. Then through that means—as I was listening, there was this knowledge building up. And as the knowledge was building up, the more an interest was also growing for the things of God.
Eventually I believe I was saved, though people never told me [laughs] that to be saved you need to ask Jesus to come into your life. I knelt down the other day and asked Jesus to come into my life. But though I did that, looking back, I believe I was really saved. It was a gradual process of listening to messages on the radio, just this knowledge building up and my life being changed.
