I'm 18. I'm a missionary to Mexico. I play piano, guitar. I love photography, I'm currently still learning it. But most importantly, I am a Believer, with a relationship with God in Christ. You won't find religion here. So, You came to my bio, I'll tell you all about me alright. 2 and half years ago. I lost my way and like some of you, most of you. You were like me. Lost and dead in your sins (Please read this all, maybe you'll die tonight, tomorrow, who knows? Be ready). I started to get involved with the wrong things. . .
Drugs and alcohol left me empty..
I started doing drugs. I started to drink alcohol. And it started to get worse. Just as sin does, comes to you and gets you to think it's fun and okay, or it's what everyone else does so why not you do it! . . . I bought into those lies just like some of you do/did/are. it's death and separation from Gods Grace. In eternal Hell that burns with brimstone and fire forever.
I got deeply depressed, to the point that I would hide myself away in my room everyday, blasting music, thinking music was my get away when drugs weren't there at the time. Which is another lie. Music isn't freedom. If it were, why do you still listen and hope for freedom in it? . . . . I started to watch pornography. I was a womanizer, cheater, hater, liar, mocker of God, lustful of everything I seen in this world, I was boastful in myself, I started to build up hatred toward the ones around me. I hid myself from them and everyone else who tried to help me. I hated God. When ones around me would try to help me, I turn them down and yell at them. I've got arrested for running away (Maybe not a big deal for some of you? It was a big deal to me because they were going to take me away from my family) I've stolen. Though I've never been physically abused, I was spiritually abused with lies and torments in the mind. I thought about suicide. Almost tried it, but by the Grace of God I'm still here. I've been to near death. I've tried to cut myself.
Wandering away from God further and further..
I was lost and wandering in this world. I'm not here to boast about my sins, I'm here to boast how Jesus Christ saved me from everything I typed out. One Saturday night, I stayed over at a friends house, I got really high and the next morning was Sunday, my mom made me go to church. I was still a little fogged from that night. I remember like it was yesterday, sitting in praise and worship thinking to myself, "I'm so lost" then, they sung, "amazing Love" as they started to sing it, tears streamed down my face. I had no idea what was happening all I knew that for the first time in a while, I felt loved, safe, secure and free! Jesus came and hugged me, as I want to describe it. A month or so later, I gave my life to Christ and immediately when I got saved, and put my Faith in Christ. He came and delivered me from those torments in my mind, He forgave me from all my sins, He washed me clean in His Blood! He freed me from my old life but now I was in Christ, I was made a new creation! (II Corin 5:17) let me tell you, without Christ Jesus, you're trapped in your sin and if you don't accept Jesus into your heart. When you die, you will be separated eternally in Hell for forever.
If the Son therefore shall set you free, ye shall be free indeed. John 8:36
Your life on earth will be a living hell! I know this because I went through some crazy stuff I didn't mention and I am not proud of. Without Jesus, I was dead and was slowly perishing to hell. But God commanded His love toward us, while we were yet sinners Christ died for us. God sent His Son to stand in our place and took the penalty on His back, He took every single sin known to human history and nailed it to His Cross and died for all sin. Anyone who believes in Jesus will not perish but have everlasting life but for those and whoever who will not believe will die and go to hell. God the Creator of all creation loves us so much!! He desired us, He incarnated Himself into human flesh. He died a cruel death we should have but He did it by His Grace by believing in Him, we are Justified by Faith. Having Faith in what He finished at the Cross, and asking Him to come into our hearts, to forgive us and cleanse us, wash us. We are Justified through Faith (Romans 5:1-2) because Christ took our place, and His Righteousness is given to us by believing what He did for us, that only cleanses us from our sins.
He desired us so much! Even though we failed Him and sinned, He took our sins and nailed them to the Cross, died, and was resurrected for us to glorify us, He didn't just die. The grave could not hold Him, He is risen from the dead and is Glorified. We too, by believing in Him, we are dead with Him, we our dead to sins, meaning we don't have to be chained by sin but we are alive in Him, just as He was raised from the dead, His resurrection! And is Glorified, we too are given new life to walk in. Because if anyone is in Christ they are a new creation! The old things are passed away. Behold all things become new! He is alive and it wasn't by accident you are reading this. He wants you, He loves you, He desires you! He wants to set you free! It's simple, easy and free! (Romans 6:23) if you want to receive this great gift of salvation. Pray this with your heart.
God, forgive me of my sins, wash me clean in Your Sons Blood. I see the need of a Savior and that's you. I accept and believe what You did for me because you love me so much. You died for my sins and made me new. Come into my heart and be my Lord and Savior. In Jesus Name amen.
That's it! You are saved and are Born-Again (old life is gone, New life in Christ "Born-Again") all Heaven is rejoicing!! And so am I :) as you have read, I wasn't perfect. Jesus says, "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest"
Now, since you are saved, this doesn't mean your life will be perfect. Because it will not! Trust me. But God does promise that through His Holy Spirit, it'll be easier. And now since you are saved, your name is written in the Lambs Book of Life! Meaning, you have eternal life, no longer going to hell because of your sins! Now, it's time to find a good church! And start reading the Bible for God to teach you through it! God is great!
