Lieutenant Hector Acosta: Was there something that you saw or heard today that makes you want to know more about Jesus? If so, that’s not because we have great production value or a bunch of talent behind the camera here. That’s the Holy Spirit talking to you. So, if that’s you, and your story is anything like mine, I just want to tell you it’s not as complicated as it seems. The way I did it was I told God, “Hey, I want to know you, but I need to know that you’re real. So, if you’re real, would you reveal yourself to me in a way that I would know?” He showed himself to me through his peace, a peace I’ve never known before. In the Bible, Jesus tells us that if you seek, you will find. If you knock, the door will be open. And in that example, he’s talking about persistence. He’s talking about going after that thing. So, if you’re curious about God, ask him. Knock on the door. It’ll be open to you. He will reveal himself to you. Find yourself a good church, get plugged in. Start reading the Bible. Find a version that you can understand. Start spending some time with God. If there’s more that we can do to help, please feel free to reach out, and we’ll be available for you. God bless you.
