The Lost Sheep | A Testimony of Salvation




I ONCE WAS LOST BUT NOW AM FOUND.

There's a lot of things that changed since I deny my will and Let His will be done - since I accepted Him.

These changes occurred only in less than a month and will forever stay as long-time habits:

I now have the UNENDING DESIRE to read His Words, listen to Him - obey Him. Now I tell you I COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN!

I now ask through prayers, believe and receive through FAITH. I suddenly found myself praying to the God I had claimed earlier didn't exist.

LOVE CAME - deep love for everyone (including people I never met). Enough love that I am willing to sacrifice my time, money, effort, etc. – exhaust everything I have. I know for some, I’m not there yet – but MY LOVE FOR OTHERS GROW DAILY.

ANGER - GONE. When others display hostility towards me, I no longer retaliate – I find it easy to wave and smile, and often, I pray for them.  MY UNCONTROLLED ANGER IS GONE.

LUST - GONE TOO. I once look up to opposite gender “as so many guys do”, as objects of desire. I'm being HONEST about this, even though you may find this hard to believe.   But LUST IS GONE.

Now, RARE are the moments I don't think of Him.

THERE’S MORE – I know.

Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Does he not leave the ninetynine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep. – Luke 15:4-6

THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED TO ME, AND I CONSIDER IT AS THE GREATEST SURPRISE AND THE GREATEST GIFT I RECEIVED FROM OUR LORD GOD.

Although there’s still hurdles along the road of my life, I WOULDN'T TRADE BACK TO THE OLD LIFE FOR ANYTHING.

PRAISE GOD FOR CHANGING MY LIFE – FOR CHANGING SOMEONE WHO DIDN'T BELIEVE HE EXISTED.

That’s why the word “BE” means “ to BECOME”.
