How I Came To Know The Lord

This is my testimony of how I came to know the Lord. For many years I heard of the word of God, but for whatever reason I never received it.

In my own mind I thought I was living a good life. I was happy with my husband, and my daughter. But there was always something missing. I did not know what it was. So for many years I was in darkness and in vanities but did not know this. I was seeking for satisfaction but could never be pleased from within. But one day my Lord and Savior called me to His light. I was invited to a love feast. (A love feast is a dinner and a message of the word of God). Little did I know that the Lord was preparing me for this night, because when I heard His word I wanted to hear more. I can’t explain how I felt that night all I know is that I had such peace.

I enjoyed myself so much that I wanted to receive this Christ. Just as the woman in (John 4:15) She said to Jesus, Sir give me this water so that I will not thirst nor come here to draw.

So that very night, not only did I taste the physical food by opening my mouth, but I also tasted the Lord. I called upon His name and I asked Him to come into my heart. That night Jesus became my bread of life (John 4:8).

The more I called on Him the more I enjoyed Him. My daughter was 3yrs old at the time and we were very much in the things of the world.

She is almost 7yrs old and if you see the way she praises the Lord you would not believe it.

I now have a personal relationship with the Lord and I pray each day that He would continue to make His home in my heart (Eph 3:17).

He is not just the God in the heavens, but He also dwells in me. I love the Lord very much.

He is my life, my light, my way, my rest, my joy, my hope, my glory, my teacher, my guide, my bridegroom, my master, my priest and King, the author of my faith who satisfies my every need.

He is my all and in all, without this Christ I am nothing. Now I have His life. Even though I was dead in my offenses and sins I now have redemption through His blood according to the riches of His grace. By grace I have been saved through faith, and I know this is not of myself; it is the GIFT OF GOD (Eph 2:8). Day by day I am experiencing this great Christ. He is my life and my life supply, seeing that His divine power has granted me things which relate to life and godliness. Praise the Lord as a believer and as God’s possession I have been chosen, called, redeemed, regenerated, saved, now I am being guarded, purified, growing and developing, transforming and being built up as a spiritual house into a holy priesthood. So let us walk worthily of the Lord to please Him in all things, bearing fruit in every good work and growing by the full knowledge of God (Col 1:10).

Grace be with all those who love our Lord Jesus Christ.
