My Personal Christian testimony

Before I was saved I describe myself as a spectator Christian as that I was at different Churches my entire life and I never admitted that I was a sinner. I never asked to have my sins forgiven and I was self-righteous and thinking I was going to heaven but during that time period I was lost and empty. Before I was saved my heart was being broken day by day and I was lost without the relationship with Jesus I was even reading the bible from time to time but I did not have any feeling at the time reading the Bible I was an individual before 2013 that God did not know. In 2013 I had started going to the Church at Beacon Hill and I began going to Sunday School with my Dad and the Gideon's was looking for new members and I was attending Church but I was still lost in my heart was still broken from living in the world without the free gift of Salvation that Jesus always had available to me and I never took the steps to take it into my heart I never asked to become saved and follow it up with Public Baptism. John 14:6 - Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. In the Summer of 2013 I asked My Pastor at Beacon Hill that I wanted to be saved and I wanted to be born again through public Baptism and I went before the Church and declared I wanted the Salvation of Jesus Christ and I said I was a sinner and I followed if up with Baptism on June 30, 2013 and Romans Ch 6 Vrs 4 -- Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
The Lord wants the best for all his sheep --- Proverbs Ch 9 V 11 For by me thy days shall be multiplied, and the years of thy life shall be increased.
After being Baptised I started working in the Gideons ministry and I have gone to other Churches giving the Gideon Message and asking for support for the Gideons Some Churches I have recently went to are Providence Church Pastor Ron Meece, Dixie Bend Church Pastor Michael Hammond, and the AME Davis Chappel Church Pastor Kelley Roberts. I have done Bible Distributions in the past at the Somerset Community college and at the Jail I have given the Gideon Message on numerous occasions. I have gone from broken in the world and living outside the Church to calling on the free gift of Salvation of Jesus and I have worked for Jesus not for works itself but I do my ministries because I have a relationship with Jesus and I love the Sacrifice Jesus did for me and I was born again to a new life and I am now a new man…
