"What am I meant to do with my life?"
Why was I born into this world?
Escape into drugs
Like many of his generation, Reza was discontented with a life that had no meaning or purpose. He asked himself, “Why was I born into this world? What am I meant to do with my life?”
The religion of his birth offered no remedy for his anguish so Reza sought an escape in drugs. He quickly spiralled into addiction, which brought an even deeper sense of hopelessness.
Determined to kick his drug habit he attended rehab, where, remarkably, verses were read to him that he later discovered were from the Bible!
Recovering from addiction but still feeling a great emptiness, Reza began watching SAT-7 Christian television.
Peace I had never known before
What he saw intrigued him so much that he called the on-screen number to find out more about Jesus. The SAT-7 team member Reza spoke to could tell how spiritually hungry he was, and so arranged Bible studies for him over Skype. Within a few days Reza decided to become a follower of Christ!
Filled with joy, having found the meaning of life he’d been seeking for so long, Reza was bursting to tell other drug addicts – and many have since come to Christ!
Reza said, “Thinking of Christ and God’s everlasting love gives me the peace I had never known before.”
Pray for young men
Pray that by watching SAT-7, young men who are searching for meaning will discover that Jesus offers true purpose.
"You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand."
