The God who sees ME

The God who sees ME

El Roi is my favorite name of God because it means the God who sees. He sees me. He wants to have a relationship with me and wants to know every detail of me life even though He is KING of the Universe. He is so good to me. He is my Lord and Savior. Nothing shall separate me from His love. He is All that I need and MORE!

My testimony shared a different way

So I wrote out a different way of sharing my testimony. This made my day as I looked up verses, and dived into the rich Truth of His redemptive power!

"When I became a Christian, I was lost in sin and I served the flesh. I was completely sold in bondage (Romans 3:23 and Romans 5:16). One thing I know is how I ran from God. I was indifferent to Him or His work on the cross. I was pretty young, but I was definitely running my own course away from God (Eph. 2:2-3). The Bible says that while I was a sinner Christ died for me (Romans 5:8). In Ephesians 2:4-5, it talks about how God saw the helplessness of the world and the sinfulness and He know that in order to save them from their sin, He had to pay the price (Col. 2:12-15). It talks about His great love. For God so loved (John 3:16). He saw me on my way to Hell apart from Him, and that's where He stepped in to save me. He ransomed me with His precious blood (1 Peter 1:19, 1 John 1:7). He took my place and bore the wrath of God. I can hardly fathom what He did. It says that He chose me and predestined me (Eph 1). And because of His death I'm adopted into His family. It says before we were far from God, but are brought near by the blood of Christ (Eph 2:13). It says He destroyed the enemy through His death, and we could be reconciled unto the Father (Eph 1:15-16). Because of this I am free in Him. The power of the flesh and of sin have no more hold on me. All I have to do is believe that His death was sufficient for my sins, and that through His burial and resurrection I am a new creature in Christ (2 Cor 5:17). And oddly enough, He has chosen me to share this hope found in Christ. He has put His Spirit within me to live in and through me. It says I am His ambassador (2 Cor 5:20, 1 Cor 4:3-7). I must let the glorious light of the gospel shine out into everyone's life. He has promised to be with me, giving me the power and the grace to speak boldly through me. I now have new life in Him and am a living testimony of His saving power."
