This is the “chief of sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, with the Gospel Light Minute X Podcast #365 titled, “How to Get Your Life Changed Today.” I’m here to remind you of what the Bible says, that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” like you and me.
…with a phone call in the middle of the night, a letter, a fall, an accident, or a sudden “chance” meeting. You can be comfortable in your lifestyle, whatever it may be, one minute and the very next minute your whole life can be changed forever, for the better or the worse.
You can be poor and struggling one minute and win a million dollars in a contest the next minute. Wouldn’t THAT be a nice change!

After watching her daughter fight for her life with spinal meningitis and watching her husband die from a massive heart attack, she says of those experiences, “I looked back on my life and just reflected and I thought, ‘I can’t go on. I can’t make it.’ The only way I could have gotten through these events is with confidence, trust, and faith in my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” She says of her faith today, “Jesus is my Lord and Savior. And He’s my refuge. He’s the person that I can always count on, the person who I quietly talk to when no one else is there — the person who will give me strength to handle the most difficult of situations. And that I know is championing me to be able to speak to others.” Her name is Vivian Stringer.
