Time to Testify!
I want everyone to be as happy as I am. This joy and happiness comes through the Love of Jesus Christ. I grew up in a Baptist home and gave my life to Him when I was 9 years old. I am now 56. I spent my teenage years in service to Him, but as I graduated high school and went on to college, I made wrong choices and lost my way. In other words, I strayed from the path the Lord intended for me to take. He always gives us free will. I spent the next 39 (yes, 39) years away from the Will of God.
In 1996, I went to a church service in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana and heard the Word of God again, presented to me plain and simple by a pastor who, that day, was definitely anointed by the Holy Spirit. I will always remember these words he said, "Don't think you grace God with your presence here today, He graces you with His." When the invitation was given, I could no more stand where I was that fly to the moon! I walked the isle and re-dedicated my life to HIM!! My life since then has been filled with a renewed awareness of Him; a spiritual, and sometimes, an almost physical, awareness of Him through the Holy Spirit in my life. What a walk with Him it has been!
I'm telling you this because I want you to know it is never too late!! I'm not perfect and never will be until My Saviour comes to take me Home. Only Jesus walked the perfect walk and was without sin. No matter who you are or what you have done, His LOVE covers and forgives all!! Read below. Get a BIBLE and look up the scriptures presented. Don't go on feeling hollow and empty, like something is missing from your life. There is, JESUS!
I am adding this paragraph on August 26,2004 in response to e-mails I receive:
My beloved, do not let Satan tell you that you are worthless or lacking or not good enough. Remember when Jesus was on the Cross, whipped and beaten beyond recognition? (Please see "The Passion of the Christ")? Do you think he was suffering for perfect people? Oh no! Praise God, He was suffering for me and you; taking our place in the name and will of a Holy and Loving God. Beloved, we can never, never make up for that. He doesn't expect us to!
Our Lord Jesus gives us so many instances in His ministry of His Love and forgiveness. Read, for example, Read Mark 16:1-7. Remember when Peter denied our Lord three times? He had walked with, talked with, lived with Jesus for three years; a burly man of the sea. But when it came right down to it, he ran when they took Jesus in the Garden. Do you see what the messenger angel said to the women in verse 7? "But go, tell His disciples and Peter,..... Now, what do you think about that? He made a special mention for the ladies to be sure and tell Peter. Do you get what I am trying to say? He is an all-loving God. If you and I fall, we must pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and find the path again. Keep on doing it until our race is run and we all see each other in Heaven. Get yourself into a Bible believing church and get active! Believe me there is a movement going on in the church today, and I assure you, you want to be a part of it. It is exciting.
Remember, by JESUS dying on the Cross for our sins, He took our place. Our sins, no matter what they are, are forgiven the minute we receive Him into our life. And let me tell you from experience, your eyes are opened and a whole new "World" waits for you. A world out of the darkness and into the Light! Don't worry about making yourself into a new person, He'll do that for you.
God Bless you!
