Chris is a well-known sports star. He talks about how his world fell apart when his father died when he was a teenager. Despite having worldly success, he got into a life of drinking which started impacting his sports performance. He knew he was in a mess, and he describes his selfishness. At that time, he became aware of a Christian guy and was very curious about why he was different. Over coffee, his Christian friend opened the Bible and talked him through the gospel. Chris knew in his heart he wanted the life Christ had to offer and he accepted Him as his Lord and Savior. Knowing God has given Chris a real reason for living, and he is confident that his father would be most proud of his decision to become a Christ-follower over any kind of worldly success he’s achieved.
