In my last year of high school a friend came to me and talked about Jesus Christ, but I hated anything called Christian. My heart was full of hatred and anger toward Christians. In our homes, worship places and schools they had taught us to hate Christians and never befriend them.
When my friend started to talk with me, I was very angry and hit him. That night I had a dream that I was in a church. I woke up and tried to forget this strange dream. The next day I was feeling lonely at home when suddenly I heard a voice shouting, “Jesus Christ loves you.” I looked around. I opened the windows, but nobody was there.
That night I could not sleep. I was thinking, “What is going on?”
The next day I went to the school and met with my friend. I told him what had happened. He said, “Jesus opened his arms to you. He was inviting you to come and be saved.”
“How?” I asked.
“Just pray this simple prayer,” he replied. “God, I am sorry for my sin. I confess Jesus as my Saviour and Lord. Please forgive me.”
I prayed and my life started to change. My hatred was gone. In my country of Nigeria it is very hard to change your beliefs. I faced many persecutions at my school and in my family. God helped me to stand firm in my new relationship with Jesus Christ. I planning now to leave Nigeria and complete my studies in anther country where I can practice my new beliefs.
