There is a lie out that Christians are perfect and that they don’t make any mistakes. That once you fail you can’t get back up again, but these are not true! We share an encouraging story about a rapper who left his wealthy life as a rapper and a drug dealer for Jesus! His name is Mark Outing, and his testimony will bless you.
“When I look back on my life, I had a lot of enemies…it really got out of hand. I’ve done things that I’m ashamed to even share.” Mark shares how there would be a club fight or a shootout and that they would do whatever it took. “The desire to succeed was at such a high rate that I would’ve sold my soul to get to the top.”
He continues and says it was normal to have ten to fifteen thousand dollars in his pocket and his life became more about being a drug dealer than being a successful rapper. He was able to buy anything he wanted from the most expensive cars to the biggest houses.
“But then I’m lying in bed at night. It’s me and my conscious and my conscious is saying ‘this is not well.’ And me thinking, ‘let me go buy something,’ I’ll buy a Porsche, and I’d get excited for a week, but it wouldn’t leave me alone because something wasn’t right. There was a problem. The thought of not being satisfied just wouldn’t go away.”
He realized he had hunger in his heart that none of the things he could buy would fill that hunger. He ended up meeting a girl and followed her to church. He found out the truth about following Jesus, and he saw what his true condition was. “My true condition is that I was not right with God. That’s scary.”
Mark cried out to God and asked Him for a new life through Jesus Christ. This is the same Jesus that has saved us and has saved you or can save you if you have not made Jesus the Lord of your life. Don’t resist the promptings of God if He is calling out to you through this testimony. He wants a relationship with you, and He loves you! We shared our testimonies of how we came to know Jesus as our Lord, and you can read those stories at Meet My Father, and you can make the same decision today! We want to hear from you!
