I live in the United States of America and I am receiving minister education at Christian Leaders Institute. I got saved when I was a little boy, I asked Christ into my heart at a young age. But I was immature. I watched too much TV, played too many video games, and used media as an escape when my parents divorced. My humor and speech and behavior were often not indicative of a Christian person. My good moments were definitely there but few and far between.
I lived for myself even as a professing believer, and made too many mistakes and lived in hypocrisy with laziness and pride. I hate that about me. But even at my lowest points, God used my mistakes to help others and teach other people lessons about foolish living. I led at least one friend to Christ. He was a hurting young man who would not have ever gone to church on his own. Now he is growing in his faith, and when he moved away, he no longer needed my mentorship. He went with Christ.
To him who has been given much, much is expected of him. I do have many talents, I’m gifted in written and oral communication. I’m also a funny guy with a long list of clean jokes. I’m aware that I have issues, and this has helped me reach people who are also deeply troubled. I have cleaned up my life as much as I can, and I know that I still have a way to go. I take this school seriously. I want to glorify God and suffer for Him with thanksgiving and answer a calling in my heart. I do not know what my future holds, but Lord willing, I will finish these classes and continue the journey of working for God, using my gifts to honor Him.
