‘Thank you for introducing me to Jesus’
A few months ago, Steph was invited to a CU event. Her life was changed that night. In her own words she tells us what happened.
Just a few months ago, my life changed when I was introduced to the CU at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan).
I’m a friend and course mate of the current president of the CU. I knew he was a Christian and proud of that fact – I was always a little curious about what he had found in the faith that was so amazing. It wouldn’t be long until I found out: I was invited to a fondue night hosted by the CU during their mission week and was informed that there would be a talk on who Jesus really is. I figured I’d go and see what it was all about, to satiate my curiosity if nothing else – I could always leave if it got too preachy.
It came as a pleasant surprise when the speaker for the night, Adam Jones [UCCF North West Team Leader], talked about the wedding at Cana. He told us that Jesus actually loves His people to enjoy themselves and how the wine He produced at the wedding had been a symbol of such joy. I was amazed to find that there was no mention of dictation or rules, but instead of a Father who loves us all so much that He sent His only Son to earth to die for the sins of all human-kind. I felt as if the talk had been directed specifically at me.
I thanked Adam for introducing me to Jesus – it was an instantaneous change for me. I felt noticeably happier and more secure. I can have council in God and I know that He is always happy to listen. There is no feeling more incredible than that. And it’s all thanks to UCLan CU, UCCF and their supporters for making that feeling a reality for me.
