Ministry.Music.Photography.Design.http://www.jlsclarity.comI grew up in church and accepted Christ at a young age, firm in the knowledge that my salvation lied in the finished work of the cross. I was baptized, joined the church and grew in the knowledge of the Bible as an elementary/junior high kid.In high school, having moved across town from my grandparents who played a large part in my church attendance as a child, I strayed away. By my junior year I was doing all the things I knew not to do, being heavily convicted, but I was far from the continuous renewing of the mind the Bible talks about. I let the sin win.I became the worst possible testimony. I was drinking, smoking, sexing – living like the world, but would talk about Christ and the bible anytime the subject came up. Self righteously glossing over my sin, I would recite John 3:16 and convince myself and others that “believing” was something that could be done intellectually without any evidence or surrender to the Savior who suffered in my place on the cross. God forgive me for those still lost without Christ who I should have been leading by example. Over the years the conviction grew, to the point where there was a time I thought I was gonna die if I didn’t change. I had a college degree, built successful businesses, was recording and performing music regularly, managing artists, buying and selling real estate – living the way I wanted to live – feeling dead inside. I had run for so long that even the pleasure I was so used to seeking wouldn’t work anymore. I was at a crossroads.At the crossroads I chose life. In August of 2007 I rededicated my life to Christ – He took my desire for all the things I found pleasure in that were against His will, and replaced it with a desire for His Word. I spent the next year in long hours of daily study, the beginning of a firm conviction that the Final Authority for all things is the Inspired Word of God, the Holy Bible.My life was spared for this moment in time, rig
