Hello, my name is Peter Gagliardi. I want to thank you for giving me an opportunity to share my story with you. Today, I want to share my incredible story of how I met the King of the Universe, as I came face to face with the Lord Jesus Christ. I want to explain what led up to this life changing meeting, what my life was like before I met Him, how He changed me, and what my life is like now that I know Him.
I grew up in a works gospel, as the church I attended taught me that I could earn my way into Heaven. So, I went out into the world to implement this works gospel. I went to school and got a great education. I was going to be a great diplomat and solve all the world’s problems. Well, I graduated and became totally frustrated as I could not even find a job in my field. I became very frustrated and lost my peace in life. Life became very miserable for me as I could not relax and enjoy life and I lost my peace in life.
I did not know Jesus as my Lord and Savior, but I knew He is the Prince of Peace. So, I got down on my knees in prayer. I told Jesus that I would do anything for Him if He would just give me peace of mind. About two weeks later, I got an interview and a job in my field! WOW! I realized that Jesus Christ is the King of the Universe, and He had actually acted in my life!
A couple of weeks later, I was shopping in my favorite supermarket, and I picked up a card that invited me to listen to a Christian radio station. I found the truth there as I was told that I could not possibly earn my salvation, but it was given to me by God’s grace through Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. This gospel is explained in the Bible. John 3:16 states that
“For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
To believe on the Lord Jesus Christ is to believe that He died for your sins, to live for Him and to follow Him in everything you do in life. I have found my Salvation and peace in Jesus Christ.
I believe Jesus will do the same for you, and transform your life. Start by reading the Gospel of John, talk to Jesus as though He is your friend, and start attending a Bible believing church in your area.
