"The Model Christian"

One of our members recently shared with me how she came to RUF, having been a Christian for about 2 years. She came as the model child. “I always got good grades, avoided getting into trouble, and always did what I was told. Christianity was the perfect fit for me.” But then last year she failed God, she failed him repeatedly, and she knew it. What followed was a process in which she sought help from me and a handful of her trusted, Christian friends in RUF. Most recently, she remarked, “I realize I am a Christian not because I am a model child, but because Jesus died for me.” She’s sure she was converted sometime last year, and wants to be baptized this Spring.
