Living in the Love of Christ
My name is Aadyasha. I am from Vizag. I was born and brought up in Bihar. Then we came here as my father got transferred. My parents were very ritualistic. Since an early age, I was asked to worship various gods and goddesses. In 2012, I got into a very good management school here. After my degree, I got an excellent offer in Bengaluru in a reputed firm. My life totally changed after that. I was attracted to the world with all its allurements. I saw money at a very early age. In between in 2016, my parents died in a car accident in Vizag. After which, I had no one to turn to. I thought my life had turned upside down.
Slowly and steadily I got into many pleasures which I found out attractive at the first. I had no one to stop me too. My life knew no boundaries. One fine morning, I saw my video uploaded on you tube. It was a night spend with my boy friend, who was working in another firm. I was completely devastated and shattered. I had nowhere to hide my face. People looked at me from a different angle in my office. I had trusted this man and he betrayed me and exposed me publicly. I was completely embarrassed in front of my colleagues too. One night I got a message on my whatsapp. It was in fact a link to a website. Something really pricked me and as I clicked on the link, it took me to a website unionchurch.org.in. I listened to this message. It was about ‘The Purpose of God’s Gift.’ The speaker told why Jesus came into this world! He also told only Jesus can forgive sins and wash away with His blood because He loves us so much. That really touched me. I knelt and cried out and said, Jesus touch me now. That very moment, I felt so much of peace and joy in my heart. I felt someone touching me and comforting me just like my father. I accepted Jesus that night.
Today, I live with no shame. I am a believer in Jesus Christ. Please pray for me as I continue on my journey of faith. I no longer want to be drawn to the pleasures of this world; but be controlled by the love of Jesus Christ. I want to thank your church for helping me to regroup in my life and knowing Jesus. Thank you union church for this website. I visit it regularly and also invite my friends to do so.
