Title: bloodofthelamb's testimony
Post by: bloodofthelamb on November 10, 2009, 08:29:35 AM
My Grandmother was my first link to Christ. Whenever she came over for lunch or dinner she would say grace. When I was little, I never really understood it. One time, years ago, I went to stay the night at her place. She told me about Jesus and how much He wanted me to accept Him as my Savior. I was told that if one didn't ask Jesus to come into their heart, they wouldn't go to Heaven. I semi-invited Jesus into my heart that day. Over the years, though, I became jaded by the world and brushed Him away. A childhood friend became another link to Christ. She had Adventures in Odyssey books which she let me read. In my teens I truly found Christ again, and read several books about Him. When I was 18, I formally admitted that I was a sinner and that I needed Christ. I said the prayer, and I felt a sort of weight lift off my heart. A feeling of peace came over me. I had become a Child of God. I'm looking for a good church to join now. My grandmother is the one who first inspired me. She passed away over a year ago, and I know she's with God now. I wish I could have thanked her while she was still here. When I came to Christ, I realized the purpose of my life: to serve God and love Him.

Amen bloodofthelamb,

A wonderful testimony. Even though your grandmother may not have known of this while here in this world it is at least reassuring that one day you will be reunited with her in the presence of our Lord and Saviour. To love God and to serve Him out of that love is one of the greatest experiences in this world and will be an even greater and most wonderful time in the time to yet come.

Another Amen BloodoftheLamb,

Thanks for sharing your testimony with us. Many of us know about that Peace with God you speak of. It's a wonderful feeling like no other - Children of the King of Kings - we belong to Him.

Love In Christ,
