My Search for the Meaning of Life

During my medical studies, I did an internship at an inner ward in the University Hospital in Frankfurt. There I saw young people, not older than me, who were terminally ill. The helplessness of medicine in such incurable cases suddenly became clear to me. Even more frightening, however, was how these patients were on the verge of death and had no support or an answer to the question of the meaning of life. A young man kept reading Mickey Mouse books for distraction. I realized that I, too, had no answer to the meaning of human life.

How do I become a Christian?

Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household” was the answer Paul gave to the jailer after he asked: “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?"  (Acts 16:30-31).

At another occasion Paul wrote:

“That if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation. For the Scripture says, "WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED." For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, abounding in riches for all who call on Him; for ‘WHOEVER WILL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED.’ “ (Rom.10:9-13)

Many have already taken this step and they can testify how they experience a new life as children of God. It is so easy: Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and call on his name.
