*Eternal Perspectives:* The Record: Believing the Record
? Growing up I was exposed to the reality the God existed, however, I was also exposed to a lot of abuse and misfortune and developed a mindset that “I live to die.”
I was always put down for one reason or another and so I believed I deserved it all because clearly I must have done something to warrant all of this.
?I remember being afflicted in the body, and as usual, it must be my fault. This time again I judged myself harshly and I locked my self away and just waited on death to come, (because I somehow knew suicide wouldn’t work).
?While I waited I remember clearly asking God to please forgive me even if I never live another day just let me know what forgiveness feels like. One day I was invited to church. I was scared to go but I didnot want to miss the chance to go and so I went.
?I heard the gospel like I never heard it before and that arose a seeking in me to the point that I chose to believe God and received salvation within a month of responding to that invitation to attend church.
?Now “I live to die to self” because I have found that all that time I was merely existing and my circumstances were only to bring me believing the record: that is, knowing or experiencing that what I heard about God was real and He loved me for real.
**Scriptures in Focus*
? He hath made everything beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end. – Ecclesiastes. 3:11
? He that hath the Son hath Life; he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. 1 John 5:12
? So then Faith come by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17
? That they should seek the Lord, if haply they should feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: Acts 17:27
? I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20
It matters not where you have been, if you come to God with a broken and contrite heart, He is ready to heal your soul through salvation in His son: Jesus.
