JESUS Saved my Life
My name is David Saju. I am from Manchester, England. I am an Indian, living here for the last 10 years. I have an amazing testimony to share. I was led by the Spirit to write this for His Glory alone. Hope this will inspire many young people to come to Christ.
I was born to a Hindu father and a Christian mother. I never had any faith in any religion and my parents never really guided me whom to follow! I lived a carefree life in my teenage years and when I reached here, I had no job options. I worked in different small firms and for the last 2 years, I am driving a cab (taxi). As I said, I lived a life which had no boundaries. My parents died in an accident about 5 years ago. Whatever money I earned, being single I used to enjoy life. I was addicted to alcohol, drugs and was into pornography. Just for the love of money, I was into male prostitution also as it is considered a lucrative career here, but I left it after a short time as I felt hurt on the inside. One fine morning, a pretty young Indian girl hired my taxi. As I drove her to another place in the city, she asked me if I had ever heard about a person named Jesus! I said even if I had heard, I don’t care as He doesn’t make any sense to me. She preached a little about Christianity and the love of Jesus in her life.
As she was about to reach her destination, she asked my mobile number and when I said why; she said, I am giving you a link to a website. Please visit it when you are free. A few days after this, I saw this link on whats app. It took me to a site and to a section known as Inspirationals. I came across many videos and something started to change within me. I came across one video titled ‘Free Indeed | Tony Evans‘. As I watched this over and again, there was a voice within me that said, what I was doing with my life was horrible. I needed to stop this and come to the truth before it is too late for me. I prayed, ‘Lord come into my life. Make me your child.’ That moment, I felt something within me which I had never ever felt before in my whole lifetime. All the chains of darkness and sin were broken in my life in Jesus’ name. I claimed what the preacher was saying, ‘whom the Son sets free is free indeed’. Yes, I accepted Jesus Christ that day. I started attending a church in my locality and my life has been truly a blessed one now. I am free in Jesus’ name. Just a month back, by the Grace of God, I married to the same girl who gave me a link to your website and Inspirationals section which truly changed my life. Today, I share the Love of Christ with others who ride in my cab and elsewhere. What Jesus did for me was awesome and I want others to know this Savior so their lives be changed forever. I thank your church website and the team for this wonderful job of spreading the Gospel. God bless you all.
