Testimony of Steve Luker

Because I am doing this on-line, I hope you will excuse me for my

testimony being short and to the point.

When I was about 7-9 years old, my dad made a profession of faith.

He said he had been "born again". I don't know if his life changed all

that much, but he became really interested in reading the Bible and

especially prophecy.

Several times a week, he made the family (my mother, my younger

sister, and myself) sit together and listen to him talk about the

Bible. We sat there and listened to his "sermons" and listened to all

the things that we were doing wrong. I thought I knew a lot about

Christianity. I knew that Jesus Christ was the Savior and all about the

end times. However, I just assumed that since dad was a Christian and I

acknowledged that what he said was true, I was a Christian too.

As I went into my teens, I cared even less about what God wanted

from me and I became more interested in being popular with the people

my own age.

Because I was handicapped (Cerebral Palsy - I am not able to walk or

talk), it was really important for me to be just like the other kids. I

was into pornography, heavy metal, and drinking. (I wasn't really

getting drunk yet.) I was even considering trying drugs. (Sex, drugs,

and Rock and Roll. Hmmm.) I was going to graduate first in my high

school class and I was even being bussed to another school for classes

(harder classes that would challenge me). By the time of my graduation,

my grades slipped so far that I only graduated second in my class.

I had already made plans to go away to college so I could just

party. I registered at a school that I knew was good for partying even

though it wasn't that great for my major. I was all set to get away

from my parents' rule and just have fun.

However, God had other plans for me. He sent a girl into my life. We

started going out. One day, we started talking about religion and I

found out that she was a Christian. I thought that this was great.

After all, I thought I was a Christian. However, as we talked, I began

to realize that I wasn't as knowledgeable as I thought I was. She asked

if I read the Bible. I admitted that I didn't. She encouraged me to

read a little each day. And I saw that I was in BIG trouble because I

had been deceiving myself. I don't know the exact date, but I saw that

I was a sinner and was going to hell unless someone didn't help me.

Finally. I received Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. All of this

took place at the end of my senior year of high school (until I went

away to school).

A week after I got to college, I found myself unable to drink

anymore (even socially). I got rid of my heavy metal cassettes. Well, I

just became more aware of my sins and slowly got rid of what I saw that

I needed to.

I am still not sinless, but I keep

Philippians 1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which

hath begun a good work in you will perform [it] until the day of Jesus


in mind. It's a slow process, but thank God that He saved me.
