    I Became A Free Man In Jesus Christ

    Most of the early years of my life, I lived a life of illusion trying to cover the vacuum in me through food, friends, entertainment, education and work. My conscience knew for the most part what was right and what was wrong. Yet I leaned towards doing what is wrong. I was never able to prevail against the power of sin. I tried to beat the shortcomings in my life, but to my dismay all the contending was in vain. I knew my life was being led in a way opposite to where my own conscience accused me. But I was stubborn and made all excuses and justifications to lead my life the way I wanted. Gradually my conscience started to get hardened and I found myself spiritually estranged and in bondage to all kinds of evil deeds. I used to wonder if there was ever a way out of the burden some, monotonous cycle of life's misery.

    Jesus, The Only Way To Salvation

    Hi, I am John Narayanan. I have been a follower of Jesus Christ for about six years now. My family belongs to the Brahmin Hindu caste. For four years, I studied the Vedas, which are the Hindu sacred writings, in the evenings after school. For two years, I learned yoga. I was exposed to meditation, special breathing, and kundalini or chi teachings. Then I came to Singapore to study. During one set of school holidays, I even served as a relief priest at a Hindu temple here. Despite my early and steep involvement in Hinduism, my family transferred me from a famous Hindu school to a Christian missionary school. From there I learned the song from Psalm 42, “As the deer panteth for water so my soul longeth after Thee.” I believe that it was this seed that brought me to the Lord Jesus.

    The Death Of My Guru - Testimony of Jag Mohan Chhabra - Here I was lacking nothing … power, position and wealth. But there was no peace within. Whatever I attempted ended in failure. My deteriorating health filled me with fear. I received all kinds of suggestions to resolve my situations and I tried most of them. I was like a drowning man, clutching at every straw. It was then, one fine morning at 7.00 am that my sister- in- law along with some friends descended on my home and she said: “We have come to pray for you; there is witchcraft done on you!”  They offered to pray for me though I was least inclined and had difficulty concealing my hatred. And she insisted that I pray to Jesus leaving all other gods and goddesses of mine. I, a staunch Hindu, was not willing to do it. I told her that the only concession I was willing to make was to accept Jesus as one of the gods.

    Nick Vujicic - A remarkable story of God's grace. My number one passion is for souls. I just love to go out and share my story and testimony wherever opportunities become available. Over time, I’ve developed messages that relate to and encourage students through topics that challenge today's teenagers.
