My testimony is that my growing up in a christian church only taught me to behave like a Christian. I learned how to act in a way that brought acceptance and love from my parents and others who had any kind of position over me. My identity was found in other people's acceptance. That was my god I served. Over time, living in a world of "rules without relationship", my heart began to be characterized by rebellion. I had outward conformity, but inward rebellion. Skepticism and doubt where common thought patterns and my ability to perform was an ever increasing burden. Performance was the only way I believed I could gain access to God's presence. I had become deaf to God's love despite knowing the Bible and growing up in the church. A friend shared a book with me, "The Return of the Prodigal Son" by Henri Nouwen. This book addressed the burden I carried. It revealed the truth of where I found my identity, in myself. I understood, I heard God calling me His son, and I was able to respond to His love for me (John 10). My pastor shared something very profound with me, "the way a person gets saved is the way a person tends to live their christian life"-Johnny Hunt. I wanted to get saved because the consequences of not doing so where too great a risk, non-acceptance from the community I grew up in and punishment from God. That's not salvation. That's preservation. My christian life was marked by doubt and fear, "am I really saved?" Salvation is based on God's love for me despite my inability to keep His rules. I'm His because He first loved me. He wrote and is constantly perfecting my faith (Hebrews 12:2) "Perfect love casts out all fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love." Who is God to you? Master or Father? Are you living life as a prodigal son (Luke 15:11-32)?
I was raised in a Christian home where I attended church regularly with my parents. My parents were faithful to teach us about God and I believed and understood spiritual things. It wasn't until I reached the age of 17 that I realized I never repented of my sins and placed my faith in Jesus Christ. For the first time, I saw my sin in the light of His righteousness, and had to turn to Him for forgiveness. I look back in my life and see His grace in how He has completely transformed me.
