Lonnie shares how he wanted a successful life and fulfillment. He sought those things through “dream jobs”, financial plans, and marriage. He still felt incomplete, so he started going to church. He got heavily involved in serving in the church but he describes how he had not understood the gospel, and thought his good deeds would make him right with God. God showed Lonnie the truth of the gospel that only through faith in Jesus Christ can we be made right with Him. Lonnie let go of his efforts and accepted Jesus’ work on the cross on his behalf.
