The Cost of Following Jesus

Sandra Nikkel shares her amazing story.  Sandra serves at Conklin Reformed Church. She grew up in a wealthy family in Latin America and was taught that education and wealth were the keys to happiness. But though her family was wealthy and educated they were far from happy.  That led to her own search for the truth.  So first, Sandra shares what it was like growing up in a wealthy family in Latin America without God.  Then Sandra shares about Argentina, their house maid, whose joy drew Sandra in.

Next, Sandra takes us to the moment when Jesus came into her life and what that cost her—being rejected by her family.  Then Sandra challenges us to unconditionally surrender to Jesus.  Next, some fun with one thing we’ll never do again!  Then, the massive difference between self-confidence and God-confidence.  Next Sandra shares the pain of having gone through a divorce.  Then Sandra shares how she was born into shame as an out of wedlock child.  Next, the difference between religion and the gospel.  And finally, Sandra shares what has happened over the years with her family that had rejected her.  Share this amazing story!
