"Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience," Colossians 3:12
25 year anniversary
Today marks the day that I've always celebrated as the day I gave my life to Christ. I was only 5 years old but I know, since that day, God's Spirit has been working in my life and changing me into who he made me to be. So much change even in this year. I remember a song from my story that is based off this verse:
All we like sheep have gone astray;
we have turned—every one—to his own way;
and the Lord has laid on him
the iniquity of us all.
I know that I still try to follow my own way - the sin nature is still trying to come back to life - but I know full well that my iniquity has been paid for and my Lord lives in me! I want to live fully and free in his grace he gave to me and anyone who would call on his name and believe.
If you need details, I wrote a post in 2010 detailing my memories of that night, in the basement of my old church, when I gave my heart to Christ.
