In fact, here’s a funny thing about grace. [Some] evangelists came to the college I was attending and brought some guys who had dramatic testimonies. They stood on the cement planter in the quad and told about how they had been in the gutter and did all kinds of horrible things, yet the Lord found them and lifted them up. And I was thinking, ‘Man, I want to jump up there too, but I want to give a different testimony.’ You see, I wasn’t in the gutter, I wasn’t the dregs of society, I had great promise, everybody thought I was on the road to success. And guess what? I still desperately needed God! — Craig Hazen (from, The Case for Grace by Lee Strobel)
