From the Depths of Depravity to a Life of Blessings: A Tale of Redemption

No greater example of the down-swooping, uplifting power of the gospel of Jesus Christ lives to-day than in this man.
In Chapter III of 'The Dry Dock of a Thousand Wrecks', Charles Bayward Stuart tells his story of how he went from living in a squalid, dangerous dive in the Bowery to living a prosperous life with his Christian wife and baby. The story of his redemption is a testament to the power of the gospel and the miracle of grace.
Charles Bayward Stuart was born and raised in a puritan town and everything pointed to a happy and prosperous career. But he drifted down to the Bowery, where he lived in a double-decker cot in a ten-cent lodging-house. He fully expected to die there, just like many others he had seen. However, a visit to the old Jerry Macaulay mission changed his life forever.
At the invitation of a friend, he went to the mission and experienced a peace he had never known before. Today, he feels like a young man of thirty and is prospering in every material way. This is the least of the blessings that have come to him during these four years and more. Charles Bayward Stuart's story is a powerful reminder that no one is beyond redemption and transformation.
