It’s a church of 200 people. I was the only who raised my hand. “Please come to the front. Do you know that Satan wanted you? For you to choose to follow Jesus makes God rejoice.” That day, I got saved.
Becoming and new creature in the eyes of Jesus Christ doesn’t mean I changed over night. I was a work in progress – and I still am.
When I professed my love and submission to Jesus, I basically said “This where I’m at in life please come and mold me into who you want me to be.” Over time, my heart grew bigger for others. My faith in the future became stronger. I developed self-discipline and integrity. I’m not perfect but I have the fruits of the holy spirit.
You don’t have to be perfect. You can have an ugly dark past. Let God meet you where you are. Let him fix your aching heart. It wasn’t possible for me to do it alone. When I accepted Jesus as my lord and savior – my spirit matured.
Try God. Please say this prayer:
God I come to you today with all my cards on the table. This is where am at in life. Would you please come into life and nurture? Would you please show me the way to have a fulfilled life? I am here seeking your name. I invite you into my heart and my life as my savior. In Jesus name -amen-
