Testimony: I Will Never Miss The Man I Was Before (part 1)

reynold comia's testimony "I Will Never Miss The Man I Was Before (part 1)" on 9/12/2016, 10:50am...

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. That's one of my favorite verses when I became a believer and follower of Christ.

I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and as my Saviour on June 2014. It all started in my workplace when I heard my co-workers(Anton and Shalom) talking about the Bible, I felt so irritated when I heard them talking about that so I stay away with them. Anton is my drinking buddy and she likes Shalom but Shalom is a Christian so he didn't entertain Anton because he's not a believer of Christ. So, Anton became very curious about Shalom's faith, so he kept on asking her about God and Shalom patiently shared him the word of God. After few months of attending to their church, Anton changed a lot from the way he talks and the way he view life and that's all because of God. One day Anton talked to me about God and that's not the usual Anton that I used to know, I even invited him and Shalom to have an alcohol drinking session with me but they just smiled at me and I felt so offended. They then invited me to their church because they will be having their annual youth presentation, I bought a ticket and I accepted the invitation. When I arrived in their church the worship leader asked us to close our eyes and to lift up our hands, and that made me felt uncomfortable but still I just followed but only one eye closed and the other one is observing. After that service, Anton asked me how's the experience, and I answered like "God is not there, He's not in your church!" and when I arrived home that night I prayed to God and asked Him "are you really true? why I can't feel you? Give me sign in my dreams." But God is not going to work according to our will but according to His will. Anton didn't lose hope, he kept on inviting me, on my third attend I then started asking myself, "why am I not like them? (referring to those believers of Christ in that church that fervently praising God) I believe that there is God, I'm kind (in my own standard) but why am I not like them? why are they not hesitant to shout their praises and they are even crying like there are no other people around them?" and that's the time I started opening my mouth and say the word "Hallelujah" followed by "Thank you Lord, forgive me for everything, I'm a sinner" (I'm teary eyed while I'm writing this, I'm still overwhelmed) and then I realized I'm already shouting like it's just me and God inside the church and my tears are falling on my cheeks. I never felt that before in my entire life, the peace, the happiness, the acceptance, the love of God, His grace, after the service they talked to me and we did the prayer of acceptance, I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and as my Saviour. After that day, I felt so hungry and thirsty with God's words every day and I asked Shalom to bought me a Bible and when she handed me my King James Bible I felt so embarrassed to God because I've been working for 6 years and I'm buying a lot of non sense things but I don't have the most important thing which is the word of God, the Bible. I always bring my Bible with me in our workplace and there are times that when I'm reading the Bible my tears won't stop from falling, I am so overwhelmed every time I'm reading it. God changed me a lot for the better. His grace is unfathomable and it's true that if His grace is an ocean, we are all sinking! -to be continued...
