By the time Eddie was 29, he had spent 11 years behind bars with convictions for assault, theft and robbery. However, a Christian minister visited him and shared Gods message of forgiveness and a new beginning in Christ, and Eddie was genuinely converted. When he left prison he went on to reach out to others through a ministry to the homeless.
This is a wonderful testimony, and a tremendous example of how when the rebel turns to the Lord, regardless of how bad his/her life may have become, there is always a loving welcome from Him.
How great and compassionate is our God!
