It’s pretty easy for me to say that the most important thing in my life is my relationship with Jesus Christ, followed by my relationship with family. And football’s later on down the line. ~ Tim Tebow

Improve Your Relationship With Jesus!
Many people grow up going to church knowing some things about Jesus but do not understand why they need a relationship with Jesus?
When you have a relationship with Jesus, you trust that his sacrificial death on the cross for our sins determines our eternal destiny in either heaven or hell, depending on the free choice He allows us.
Many of us have had a relationship with Jesus since we were young, but that does not mean we understood all things about Jesus. When I was a young boy about the age of 6 years old, I had my understanding that God was good, and I needed to listen to him.
When I got older, about the age of 12, my understanding grew, yet my faith was somewhat immature. But when the winds of high school blew hard and temptations of alcohol and drugs clouded my thinking and my relationship with Jesus, and my life fell apart right before my eyes.
Like many young people, I used to think that the world revolved around me and the relationships I had with others in my life. Thank God that there was a point in my life when I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior that I realized that my relationship with Jesus was the most important relationship that I needed to have. The other relationships in my life were unnecessary, but my relationship with Jesus outranked the others by far. ~ Bill Greguska

God Does Not Make Us Love Him; We Have A Free Will
It is not that Jesus changed, but it was me and the free will that enticed me to do what was evil. I still was bothered by my conscience, but I eventually got over it and numbed my conscience, which allowed me to keep using drugs and alcohol.
Thank God that I had my Godly mother stood up for me. She supported and loved me more than anyone in my life. That love was what I needed (people need love). God allowed me to go through long-term treatment, which was just what I needed.
God never changes! He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. You and I do change, and hopefully, we are changing for the better! ~ Bill Greguska
