A New Lease of Life

Hallelujah, in the name of Jesus Christ I testify.

One evening in July 1984, again intoxicated with alcohol, I had one of my regular outbursts which nearly broke up my family.  But this particular incident was significant.  It marked my turning point.  For the first time I felt deeply ashamed of myself.  My hitherto futile lifestyle flashed through my mind.  Is it still possible, I wondered, for me to have a clean start, putting drinking and gambling to the past?

Through God's arrangement, LondonChurch held a Spiritual Convocation in August that year.  I attended the services.  The words of God in whom my family trusts and His Holy Spirit moved me to accept the Lord Jesus as the Savior: I was baptized into His name on 18 August 1984.  Christ's blood had redeemed me from my sinful past.  He had helped me to become a new person with a fresh outlook of life.

In early 1985, while attending a service, I saw God's glory shining on the speaker and interpreters at the pulpit.  In awe, I witnessed this vision for more than 10 minutes.  Soon after this episode, the gracious Lord bestowed His Holy Spirit upon me.  Hallelujah! Having lived for 57 years, I have finally found the warmth and fullness of life in Christ Jesus.  May all glory be to His name.  Amen.

            of death, I fear no evil, for thou art with me".(Ps 23:4)
