hi everyone as promised here is my testimony. i was rasied in a christian family in a small coal mining town in cape breton nova scotia canada. i heard the gospel from my parents from as far back as i can remember.i always knew that in order for a person to enter into Gods heaven they had to have a personal relationship with the Lord Jesaus Christ in other words i had to be born again.but i had a rebellious spirit and resisted any attempt to get saved. there were times in my life when it was very clear to me that God was speaking to me but i refused to listen to Him or ny parents warnings. the world was where i longed to be and to be my own boss and live lfie my,i wanted what i thougt was my freedom.for a while i got what i wanted but satin is a cruel task master. the things i thought were great be came addictions for me i.e. alcohol.drugs,gambling,partying,etc. many times people crossed my path and spoke of Christ tome but i turned a deaf ear.in aug of 1992 some some of the christians in my parents assembly were having an open air gospel meeting on the stret corner across from my place of work. things were quiet so i thought i would listen to pass some time. one brother who spoke quoted Heb:9:27 it is appointed unto man once to die but after this the judgement. i knew i was going to die but for the first time in my life i realized that i was going to have to give God an answer for for i refused to accept Christ as my saviour and i became very troubled about my soul.in dec. of that year i went to some gospel meetings and felt the convicting power of Gods word and realized that i could do nothing to obtain salvation. i soon came to an end of myself and asked God to help me .while lying on my bed in a turmoil of mind it was as if some opened a big screen in mind and i saw the Lord Jesus Christ suffering on the cross of Calvary and i wondered why He would do that for such a vile sinner as i.the verse in Gal:2:20 came in to my mind He was the Son of God who loved me and gave Himself for me. ihave been resting on this promise from God for almost thirteen years now saved by the matchless grace of God.
sorry this post is so long hope you can appreciate the work of God in my life
may God bless you all .thanks be unto God for His unspeakable gift.

You should change/add to your nick.....sinnertoSaint...for you became a saint of God at your salvation. Even though we still commit/practise sins, the sin of unbelief is gone from our lives because we have become believers in/on our LORD JESUS CHRIST. HE became our LIFE...the ONE living in us, working with and through us to accomplish HIS will. I enjoyed your testimony. As you said, we all have to come to the end of ourselves, before we ask for and get help. Galatians 2:20 is one of my favorite verses and shows us a true picture of what has truly taken place in a Christian's life at salvation..."I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me." Amen and amen. GBU!!!

Just read your testimony and I do appreciate your sharing. The LORD is faithful. And it is always encouraging to read how he reaches into our lives and gives us life. God bless you. But it is hard to call you sinner! You are now Redeemed!
