God’s grace, redemption, and abounding love is offered to all of us no matter our backgrounds, past mistakes or the struggles we face. Christianity Today reserves the last page of each issue for a “compelling story of Christian conversion” (“The Top Testimonies of 2017,” Christianity Today, December 28, 2017, https://www.christianitytoday.com/news/2017/december/top-testimonies-of2017.html). The people in these stories come from a variety of backgrounds: someone who lived through a childhood filled with substance abuse, an Iraqi interpreter for the American military, and an elite chess player. Their stories are wildly different, but they are powerful because in their difference, they testify to the same God.
