I gave my life to Jesus on May 17th 1998 was baptised on Easter Sunday April 4/1999.
Its been a struggle at times, but through these struggles my faith in Jesus has grown. I have a favorite bible verse Ephesians 2:8 The reason its my favorite is that I was struggling with my salvation and the Lord spoke this verse to me.
The Lord said to read ephesians 2:8 this is what it says....For by Gods grace have you been saved through faith not of yourselfs but a gift from God. It spoke volumes and it just strengthened my faith even more.
Its ok to have struggles in our faith. Ask God and He will give you the answers.
I think that sometimes we are afraid to show our weakness, I believe that as christians we think that if the non believers see our weakness it will be an opportunity for them to turn away from what we have.
We don't have all the answers,and we do make mistakes, but what we do have is Jesus Christ and thats the greatest gift anyone can have.
Its not about religion but about relationship. the do's and don'ts of religion I believe have turned many away from knowing Jesus as their Lord and saviour.
Didn't Jesus say come as you are? He'll do the changing from the inside all we do is say yes and let the Lord do the changing.
You'll be amazed at what the Lord can do! Matthew 11:30 says For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.
Jesus came to set us free. 1 peter 5:7 casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
You've tried everything else. Now is the time to give it to Jesus.
