As a kid, my grandparents took me and my siblings to church. That was the only knowledge of Christ I had. I did not grow up in a believing home and didn’t grow up hearing the Bible.
Even my marriage began under sinful circumstances, having had children outside of marriage. As sins continued to build, my life and marriage became more difficult. God used those difficult circumstances, however, to show me my need for Christ.
These sins caused me to lose my marriage and struggle through separation from my family. I knew things needed to change. I sought out a person I thought was religious, and asked about attending their church. By God’s grace, this person told me not to come to their church—which I later found out didn’t preach the gospel—but instead sent me down the street to ask a family who attends Greenville Grace. I started receiving counseling and realized my problem was not life circumstances, but my sins before God.
By God’s grace, He revealed my need for Jesus Christ to pay for my sins. In the last couple years, I have lost my marriage, nearly died in an accident two years ago, and struggled through other difficult circumstances. Yet, God has shown me I have received more than I deserve, I have salvation through His Son.
Note: We were blessed to hear testimony of God’s faithfulness to six brothers and sisters this past Sunday at their baptism. It is our joy to share their testimonies with you and will be posting one testimony a day this week for each individual or couple.
