I’ve been enjoying this collection of stories of people who have found faith in Christ, put together by Redeemer church in NYC.
They call it the New Birth Portrait Series.
Becoming a Christian in some ways is like taking that step off of the curb and crossing the street. In New York, you are never 100% sure that no car is going to come and hit you, but you basically look both ways, you listen, and you decide, ‘Okay the street is clear and I can cross.’
But I do think that with a little piece of evidence—reading and exploring this—you can get 50%, you can get 60%, and so basically you start to cross the street. Really what fills in the rest of that is meeting Jesus personally.
That’s how you get to the other side.Mike Luo, New York Times journalist, in his New Birth Portrait Series interview
