I was saved 26 years ago today. Back in 1983 the Lord brought me under deep conviction and drew me to Jesus. He saved me on May 23, 1983, and I am still saved today. I don’t expect that to change, ever! Also, this weekend marks 25 years of preaching the Word of God.
I do not share these things to draw attention to myself, but to showcase the amazing grace of our wonderful God. That He would reach down to redeem a vile sinner such as me is something that still causes me amazement after all these years.
Perhaps this was the thought that gripped the heart of Paul when he penned these words:1 Corinthians 1:26-29 “For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence.” I have adopted those verses as my own, for they acurately describe what God has done in my life. I praise Him for His grace and blessings over all these years, and I trust to experience grace to serve Him as the years continue to unfold in my life.
Pray for me that I will ever be found faithful to the Lord Who redeemed me with His free, sovereign grace.
