A Second Chance At Life

Letters like this, from one of our students, can really make your day:

You've done the most fantastic job with people I would have written off as faithless losers (including myself). You helped one friend find the way out of drugs; you helped another friend find her way out of her seemingly useless existence (she was a self-made atheist and proud of it).Although I wasn't an atheist, I didn't know how to communicate with God, and I would have never guessed that it was through Jesus Christ. But I've found Him, and I've never been so happy in all of my life. Thank you.

These young people have found the only way to a second chance at life—Jesus! They've made the all-important discovery that, while it is a terrible experience to be lost, it is a fantastic experience to find salvation! What is the only solution for someone trapped in sin?

“I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes.”
—Romans 1:16.
(Unless otherwise noted, all Scriptural texts in the DISCOVER guides are from the New International Version of the Bible [NIV].)

The gospel is a saving power to sinful individuals who believe fully in Jesus and accept Him into their lives.

The young people in the above letter accepted Christ by placing their trust in Him and giving Him their allegiance. The power of God, the power of the gospel, transformed their lives, and they now enjoy an ever-growing friendship with Jesus.
