A Christmas Story - Ray Merz
Mark C. Smith - Pastor
About this video:
Ray Merz had a Spiritual Awakening Experience from Jesus Christ in 1985. Ray was an alcoholic, un-churched, biblically illiterate, crushed, depressed, suicidal, going to AA but couldn't get free from the desire to drink. He was at his wits end. Then, he had a Jesus Christmas experience. Jesus came to Ray, not as a baby in a manger. But as Light of the world, Savior, forgiver of sins. Pastor Mark shares Ray's encounter with Jesus. Similar to what Saul (Paul) experienced. Why did Jesus come this way. Ray was damaged, broken, ignorant of who God was, hurt by people who should have cared for him but didn't. So the Great Shepherd of the sheep, Jesus came to a sheep who cried out to Him. Ray recently passed away. He is now home with Jesus, Ray's Savior and His Lord God.
