My personal testimony
I began my childhood in a non-Christian home. Neither of my parents wanted anything to do with the church because in their opinion it was hypocritical, judgmental and condescending. However, since a local Bible church provided free bus transportation to Sunday school, my two brothers and I were shipped off so we would be out of my parents hair on Sunday mornings.
As a youngster I remember hearing a preacher speak plainly and
simply what God's word had to say concerning heaven, hell, Jesus Christ and my
I realized I needed the peace of God in my life and I accepted His free
gift of salvation, made possible by the death of his only begotten son, Jesus
Christ. Not too long after that my brothers and I managed to drag mom and dad to church. Both eventually accepted Christ.
After they became Christians, their lives dramatically changed for the good. I thank God for the peace that comes in knowing my family is now part of the family of God!
Since I was quite young when I made my decision to accept
Christ, I didn't really understand the true significance of my decision until
I was in high school and began to be confronted with the tough decisions of choosing
between right and wrong. It was my sophomore year in high school that I realized I must be obedient to God and it was then that I fully committed my life to Him.
It was only then that I began to experience first hand that God's promises are true and relevant on a daily basis. I began to discover His plan for my life and experience the inner peace that only God can offer. They continue to give me peace and strength daily. I am now 73 years of age. As I continue to follow and trust Him daily I have learned to love him more and more.
His love for me and His timeless promises give me such great comfort and peace that I cannot imagine how those without Him are able to cope with life's many problems, disappointments and tragedies. Three of my favorite verses are:
where God promises:
I will never
leave thee or forsake thee.
Proverbs chapter 3 verses 5 & 6 where He promises,
Trust in the
Lord with all your heart and lean not upon your own understanding. In all your
ways acknowledge him and He shall direct your paths.
Philippians 4:13 where I am assured:
I can do all
things through Him who strengthens me.
Below I'd like to share with you God's message of love and hope
I pray that if you do not know God and his son Jesus Christ in a
personal way that these excerpts from the Bible will help you as they have me.
The following passages from God's word explain how you too may find eternal peace, joy, and fulfillment
through knowing Him! These are not my words, They are God's love letter to you from
His holy word, the Bible.
A WAY THAT SEEMETH RIGHT UNTO A MAN, BUT THE END THEREOF ARE THE WAYS OF DEATH."
WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH; BUT THE GIFT OF GOD IS ETERNAL LIFE THROUGH JESUS CHRIST
YOUR BEST, WILL NOT GET YOU
ARE ALL AS AN UNCLEAN THING, AND ALL OUR RIGHTEOUSNESSES ARE AS FILTHY
GRACE ARE YE SAVED THROUGH FAITH; AND THAT NOT OF YOURSELVES: IT IS THE GIFT OF
GOD NOT OF WORKS, LEST ANY MAN SHOULD BOAST."
AND NOW... THE
JESUS CHRIST DIED
LIKE SHEEP HAVE GONE ASTRAY; WE HAVE TURNED EVERY ONE TO HIS OWN WAY; AND THE
LORD HATH LAID ON HIM THE INIQUITY OF US ALL."
COMMENDETH HIS LOVE TOWARD US,IN THAT, WHILE WE WERE YET SINNERS, CHRIST DIED
...BUT THE BIBLE
SAYS YOU CAN ONLY BE SAVED BY FAITH THROUGH JESUS CHRIST
ANSWERED AND SAID UNTO HIM...EXCEPT A MAN BE BORN AGAIN, HE CANNOT SEE THE
KINGDOM OF GOD."
"BUT TO HIM THAT WORKETH NOT, BUT BELIEVETH ON HIM THAT JUSTIFIETH THE UNGODLY, HIS FAITH IS COUNTED FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS."
*** HOW TO BE SAVED ***
~YOU MUST CHANGE YOUR MIND
ABOUT SIN (REPENT)~
"IF WE SAY
THAT WE HAVE NO SIN, WE DECEIVE OURSELVES, AND THE TRUTH IS NOT IN US. IF WE
SAY THAT WE HAVE NOT SINNED, WE MAKE HIM A LIAR, AND HIS WORD IS NOT IN
"EXCEPT YE REPENT, YE
SHALL ALL LIKEWISE PERISH."
"FOR IN HIM
DWELLETH ALL THE FULNESS OF THE GODHEAD BODILY."
EVEN GOD CALLED CHRIST GOD
"FOR UNTO WHICH OF THE ANGELS SAID HE(GOD) AT ANY TIME BUT UNTO THE SON HE SAITH, THY THRONE, O GOD, IS FOR EVER AND EVER "
"IF THOU SHALT CONFESS WITH THY MOUTH THE LORD JESUS, AND SHALT BELIEVE IN THINE HEART THAT GOD HATH RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD, THOU SHALT BE SAVED."
"AND I GIVE
UNTO THEM ETERNAL LIFE; AND THEY SHALL NEVER PERISH, NEITHER SHALL ANY MAN
PLUCK THEM OUT OF MY HAND."
If you were to die today are you absolutely sure where you would spend eternity?
NOW IS THE TIME TO COME TO
ASK GOD TO SAVE YOU NOW!!!
"THEREFORE IF ANY MAN BE IN CHRIST, HE IS A NEW CREATURE: OLD THINGS ARE PASSED AWAY; BEHOLD, ALL THINGS ARE BECOME NEW. " 2CORINTHIANS 5:17
Remember this...GOD LOVES YOU AND HAS A WONDERFUL PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE!
