TWO QUESTIONS THAT CHANGED MY LIFE
Years ago, these two questions changed my life:
"Donna, do you really want to know the truth?"
"Donna, will you obey the truth --no matter what the cost?"
I said "Yes" to both of those questions with a sincere heart.
A person that says "Yes" to those questions, with a sincere heart, will become the "little child" of Matthew 18:3-4. After that, they will grow and mature --but they will never be more perfect than they were that day they made that commitment to God. Jesus said:
" ... Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 18:3-4
In my case, I had wandered around in the church system for decades; I had spiritual gifts --but was deceived about my spiritual condition. I know now, that I had never fully repented; was still unconverted; and that "signs and wonders" are not evidence of the
indwelling Holy Spirit or the new creation. After that wonderful day, there was so much for me to learn --and unlearn!
I continually praise and thank God for His goodness and mercy towards me. Until my conversion, I would have been among these people who had been deceived:
"Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity." Matthew 7:22-23
Before I was converted, I needed to see the difference between The LAW OF LIBERTY (The Ten Commandments) and "the yoke of bondage." My conversion came when I submitted myself to obey The Ten Commandments and the words of Jesus.
"The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple." Psalms 19:7
God will bless everyone who walks that narrow path that leads to eternal life...
