While we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8 NIV). God saved us when we didn’t even know Him. He saved us at the exact right time. I can’t thank God enough from rescuing me, I was so lost and I’m so happy to be saved today. Love is something I have never experienced in my years on this earth until after accepting Jesus as Lord and Savior. A few years later, one day while fasting and praying the presence of the Lord was so strong that all I could do was love people, I mean anyone. His heart is so big that He truly loves us uniquely its so beautiful. My heartbeat was to a different drum.
Right before being saved, I was in a dark place. The people I thought I loved never loved me back. My self-confidence and esteem was literally on the ground. There was always an empty feeling like something was missing, I was hurting and so sad but could not see why. Even during that time God was chasing after me, trying to save me from myself but I couldn’t see or sense it. He chases after us, trying to rescue us from the chains. I always thought being a Christian would restrict so much of my life. It did the exact opposite and set me free from those chains and gave me a new identity and purpose.
If you’re not saved and would like Jesus to come into you heart and change you from inside out. Say the following. 9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved (Romans 10:9-10 NIV).
