Joe came from a strong Catholic background. He had a fear of God, went to confession many times, but felt so hopeless because of failing God’s standards for living. Joe resigned himself to thinking he would go to hell when he died. Joe talks about getting in with the wrong crowd, all the while still thinking about God. In time, God used Joe’s wife to expose him to the truth of the gospel and Christ’s atoning death and finished work for his sins. Joe was rejected by his father for leaving the Catholic tradition to follow Christ. Having once been unsure about the phrase ‘born again’ – Joe now is happy to share that he is a born again Christian and Jesus Christ is number one in his life.
