In college I was an atheist. I had many Christian friends including one roommate who got serious about his faith. He bought Christian books and kept them in his room. Each day I would pick a book, read a paragraph, then throw the book against the wall in disgust. One day I told him I was reading his books and asked if I could take one of them and read all of it. He agreed, the book was "The Sovereignty of God" by Arthur Pink.
I read the book in 3 days... on the 3rd day when I finished it I sat alone in my apartment and confessed my sin to God and asked Him to show me the way and help me understand exactly who Jesus was. I told God I didn't fully understand what He was doing in my life and what it really meant to trust Jesus.... but I trusted Him to show me.
That Sunday I attended church for the 1st time and have not ceased from trusting Jesus... 38 years now.
