Testimony : by Paavani
'When I first read the Bible, it electrified my veins, thirsting to know more about this mighty, wondrous God. The Bible will forever remain my lifeline, my heartbeat. In it, I found the Source of Life Himself.
My testimony at a glance: there is only One God, One Creator. He is our most precious, loving Heavenly Father. The Dear Master of our souls. Jesus is the Bread of Life, Living Water. His love is Everlasting, it was displayed brightly on the Cross at Calvary where He was crucified for our sins. He died so we would live. The Holy Spirit dwells in us as believers. I believe 100% in the Trinity. As taught in the Gospel of John, accepting God’s triune nature equips me to worship Him in spirit, grace, and truth. He is the Good Shepherd, I hear His voice as His sheep, called into His fold, sealed as a child of the King of Heaven. Never, ever did I envision being a Christian, let alone such a fireball for Jesus. When Christ steps in, the script is rewritten on a magical scale. Life has gotten harder since I became His, as predicted in His Word. He has rescued me out of deep waters, blazing furnaces, my scars are proof He heals. The word ‘excruciating' originated to describe the torment on the Cross. He is the temple, the veil was torn with His last dying breath. He extends grace for the days, rest at nights, come what may in this vapor of mortal life. Grace is what gets me out of bed in the morning, empowers me to persevere through the restless nights. In the midst of this Earthly journey, when enduring radiant sunlight and raging storms alike, in my Lord & Savior Jesus Christ alone my hope is found. His Timing, His Way, His Story, His Glory.
His Matchless Name is the rock on which I stand.
