My testimony is all of the Lord’s grace. I was brought up in a loving Christian home and was taken to Church and Sunday school which I enjoyed and loved singing the hymns.
When I was about 16 I would say I wanted to explore the world to see what if offered, I stopped going to Church for a few years. I was really not happy and felt there must be more to life than this. Mum and Dad kept praying for me and encouraged me to go to Church.
One day Mum asked me to take her to church and I agreed. Looking back I did not expect such a warm welcome when I went back to Church and in many ways it felt like I have never left, God is so good.
After being back in the Church for quite a while a dramatic event happened at a Sunday evening service. I was listening to the sermon and I remember the text so well – in fact I love to quote it: For as much as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things such as silver or gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ as of a lamb without blemish and without spot. (1 Peter 1 v 18-19) Christ spoke to my heart and said I died for you personally, That moment I believed in the Lord Jesus Christ, I knew what I had to do I must be obedient to the Lord and be baptized (Acts 2 v 38) I walked to the back of the Church and asked to be baptized. The Church heard my testimony and not long afterwards I was baptized.
I can say I was blind I now I can see (John 9 v 25) The Lord saved me for his glory and now he wants me to Love him, glorify him and serve him. (Ephesians 2 v 8-10) Let every thing that has breath praise the Lord (Psalm 150 v 6)
