Former professional wrestler Lex Luger spoke Nov. 4 at Truett-McConnell Chapel.

Luger gave a testimony about his life and how God has brought him to where he is today. He recounted the story of an injury that left him with temporary paralysis.

"God showed me that there is strength through weakness," he stated.

Luger encouraged students, faculty, and staff to not live life for themselves but rather for Christ.

"Let God fulfill his purpose in you and not what you think your purpose is" he said.
