For God So Loved....Even Me

“The streets will draw you. They will raise you, and give you back to your mother to bury you.”

This is a story about a young misguided kid growing up in New York City during a time when drugs, gangs, and crime dominated the streets. Undoubtedly destined for an early death or a lifetime prison sentence, his life was changed forever when he met a woman small in stature but mighty in faith! Early death was not the plan God had for his life.

In the Bible, John 3:16 tells us, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” This is God’s promise to me and to you.
