I became a follower of Jesus when I was a student in London in 1975. My friend Andy had spent about six months explaining things to me, helping me to understand the Bible and helping me to understand how I could connect with Jesus. On 9th February, he showed me a little passage in the book of Revelation. It says:
Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends. (Revelation 3:20 NLT)
For me, that was my epiphany. I understood the concept. I basically said, ‘Jesus, I want you to come into my life.’ My mind was illuminated, and my heart was warmed. That was the beginning of my journey of following Jesus and knowing him personally.
Can I encourage you to read a little booklet that I’ve written called ‘Making the Connection’? I hope that as you read it you will understand something of what happened to me and what can happen to you. My prayer is that you too will make the connection with Jesus and experience what I’ve experienced: forgiveness from the past, new life today and a hope for the future.
