Life-changing Testimony

Don Smith is a friend, a brother in Christ, and a leader at CrossRoads Christian Center Church.
He teaches Sunday school and has filled the pulpit on occasion.
Recently Don posted his testimony on Facebook.
A testimony is a powerful weapon against the forces of evil.
His testimony is one of a God given gift thrown in the gutter.
It’s a testimony of wasted time, effort, and life.
The testimony is one about drugs, sex, and more drugs.
It’s about trying to end it all with a bullet.
More important, it’s a testimony about a praying mother and the power of the risen Savior.
In the little space I have to write I cannot do justice to what he wrote.
Each and every born-again believer has a testimony.
It may not include drugs and suicide attempts; it may not have murder or adultery in it but it will have an account of sin and how a Savior can forgive and cleanse from that sin; any sin!
Every testimony ends the same way – Jesus saves!
The Bible says and this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. 1 John 5:11
Don’s life is much different now since he asked Jesus to save him.
His life is more abundant, just as Jesus promised.
He no longer seeks to destroy his own life; and now he seeks to save others.
This is not unique to Don.
I, too, have a testimony.
Perhaps I never did drugs or alcohol but I still needed the forgiveness of a Savior.
There is no sin that the blood of Jesus cannot take care of .
It is written if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9
Please accept Jesus as your own personal Savior today.
And you will be like Don and me, with your own testimony of God’s saving grace!

Rev 12:11
And they overcame [Satan} by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.

  1. “…by the word of their tesyimony…” The word of my teatimony is that God is acomplishing His Word in me. No evil can stand against the WORKING Word. That I’m slowly learning, and standing on IT ! There is no one God will not accept when they truely are repentent. Thank You Lord JESUS.
