I came to faith in Christ on the 31st of January, 1991 when Jesus broke through after reading Isaiah 64:6 where I learnt that I was a sinner just like everybody else. Previously I had led a reasonably decent life of staying from smoking, alcohol and indecent behaviour with ladies and got the impression that all was well with me. I thought I did not even require salvation. I was actually spiritually blind and mistaken until that day. The Word hurt my ego and I pleaded with God for mercy and wonderfully, I began experiencing His Peace and developed an intense hatred for all of my sins-- arrogance, covetousness, desparaging others and sent them to the Cross of Christ. I am glad that He cleansed me from all of them and has given me an earnest desire to seek to glorify Him in whatever I do. I realise I have not been perfected yet an so humble myself constantly at His Cross, confessing my sins and examining my life in the light of the Word of God. Similarly, I make amends wherever I have erred so that I may live with the confidence that He is guiding me in this life and afterwards will receive me into His glory.
PRAISE BE TO OUR GOD.
