I knew something was wrong in my life. I was aware of disobeying some of the Ten Commandments. I knew in my heart that I was doing wrong but I had no power to stop. I went to church regularly, prayed at night, even read the Bible some but I had no peace. I feared going to a place of eternal punishment when I died. The harder I tried to live right, the more guilty I felt.
One Sunday, my pastor explained how Jesus left heaven and came to the earth. He talked of Jesus’ life—His miracles and good deeds that revealed Him as God. He explained that Jesus died on the cross as a substitute for sinners. I saw that my deliverance was in Jesus alone. I told Him I was turning from doing what was wrong and trusting Him alone to forgive me because He died for me on the cross
From that moment on my life has been different. Now I love to read His Word, go to the church to worship Him and serve Him with all my heart. He has given me the peace of His presence so that no matter what happens, I know He loves me and will do what is best. I no longer fear death.
