My Testimony

     I grew up going to church every Sunday, memorizing Bible verses, doing extracurricular activities at church, and learning all about Jesus. But I didn’t know Jesus, and I didn’t know that I had put an idol in my life in place of Him. I used to idolize what people thought of me. When I sinned, I didn’t want anyone to know because it would tarnish the reputation that I had built for myself as the “good guy.” Separation, an eventual divorce, and complete exposure of my sin brought me to the lowest point in my life. I was fearful of what people were going to think of me and how empty my life was about to be. Through the church, His people, God showed me a glimpse of how much He still loved me and how much He has always loved me. I was not put to shame but reminded that my shame was endured and dealt with on the cross by God’s son, Jesus Christ. I was reminded that there is nothing that I could do to earn this grace. Jesus doesn’t want me to just know about Him, but to know Him and have a relationship with Him. Now that I have put my faith in the life, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, I have a desire to serve Him. I no longer have an image to keep because my identity is found in Christ. I am a new creation. Though I will still sin; rather than hiding it, I want it exposed to the truth. I want to put off my old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of my mind; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness. [Ephesians 4:22-24]
