How Jesus Changed my life - My Testimony

Before I received Jesus  

I was Born in a Christian family, but never experienced God, at a very young age started getting into bad habits like smoking, drinking and took drugs to. And I always used to think these things I did was "COOL".
But there were times when i really wanted to quit all this, but it was impossible for me.
I loved the world and the things of the world.
I used to always get into fights, and loved to be a bully, used to fight with my parent, but I never had peace and happiness in my heart. I can explain myself in Four words" I WAS COMPLETELY  WASTED"

How I received Jesus Christ

As is said above I was born and brought up in a Christian family, but never gave much importance.
A elderly friend of mine always  used to call me for Christian meeting, and used to always tell me about Jesus and used to explain it, but i never liked it. But he dint loose hope on me, he used to call me to his house and used to always encourage me.
One day while I was in my daily hangout place and used to smoke, drink etc, He just called me while he was on his bike and asked me if I am coming for a small round. I went with him, and he told me about the living God and wanted me to change and he explained to me that we humans cant do anything without God and only he can get you out of the pit you have fallen. That night I went home and I just though" what am I doing with my life??" "If I die right now will i go to heaven or hell??I" these thoughts bothered me a lot, but I prayed and told God to help me, because it was impossible for me to do it on my own.
It says in the Bible In John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that he gave His one and only son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life" 
Then slowly my attitude towards many things started changing. I realized that the Son of God  Jesus Christ came down to earth and died for my sins and rose on the third day, He took the punishment that i deserved.
I used to hate reading the Bible and praying, but from that day I started praying and reading the Bible, 
and I loved it.

After I received Jesus Christ

My life completely changed, He brought me out of all the bad habits which i thought was impossible, it took time but i completely came out of drinking, smoking etc. And slowly my attitude towards the world changed.
1 John2:15 says " Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him."
Jesus is such a loving Father, who forgave all my sins, and He gave me the Membership in Gods family, He gave me freedom from the fear of death, He gave gave me the assurance of eternal life , He gave me the purpose of living, He gave me the purpose of living, He gave me freedom from others and He directly counsels me from His word (Bible)

Anyone can be saved, because He loves you and Jesus Christ already died for all our sins, so that we don't suffer and he rose on the third day.
