Christian Testimonies from Around the World
There are so many wonderful Christian testimonies that tell the Good News of Jesus Christ! Isn't it cool that as part of God's family we have brothers and sisters in Christ from around the world?!
I teach 2nd Grade at a Christian school and this year our theme is "Around the World in 2nd Grade." We will be touching on different cultures and missions around the world and how Jesus proclaims in John 3:16: "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
My site statistics show me we have visitors from all around the world. So I'm asking if anyone willing would email me your Christian testimony of how you came to know Jesus as your personal Savior and anything you'd like to share about your country. I'd love to share these with my 2nd Graders, but also on this website with your permission.
I never want this site to become only information about the mechanics of Bible study, but rather the "essence" of Bible study too - building and nurturing a living relationship with the Creator of all.
So beginnig with me...
A life changed in the USA...my Christian testimony
I grew up in a wonderful home with four older siblings. Yes, I am the "baby," and loved every minute of it! Our parents took us to Sunday School and church every week. I felt all was well with the world.
Sometime during my high school years a friend of mine came back from their first year of college and shared their Christian testimony of how they had "been saved." My answer was that I was a Christian - I went to church. I know they must have felt rejected, but God used that in my life because I started questioning whether all there was to being a Christian was going to church and trying to be good.
I started searching, and as the Bible says in James 4:8: "Draw near to God and He will draw near to you." I believe He did just that as He began revealing Himself to me.
The summer I graduated from high school I spent a week visiting one of my sisters and her family. I noticed something different in her; she had a deep peace and joy. She said it was Jesus and gave me a book to read by Catherine Marshall called Beyond Ourselves.
God used all of this together to open my "spiritual" eyes. I knew I had messed up (sinned), and I realized I needed Him and wanted Him in my life. I knelt right there by my niece's bed and accepted Jesus as my personal Savior and Lord.
He changed my life; He changed me! No longer did I only think of Him on Sunday as a far off God, but He began to be in my thoughts every day as I sensed His presence as my companion and guide. Since then He has done amazing things, many of which I'm sure will get shared here along the way. I have never for a moment regretted surrendering my all to Him that night.
Not only do I have the assurance of eternal life with Him in Heaven, but my life has purpose now. Jesus gave me that deep peace and joy I saw in my sister and SO much more! I have in NO WAY "arrived," but am still growing in Christ. That's why I know from experience how important it is to continue spending time each and every day studying His Word and spending time with Him in prayer.
My prayer is that God will use this post to encourage and touch others for His kingdom. For more information about knowing Jesus Christ, visit our "Know Christ" page.
Now, I hope some of you from all over the world will share your testimony with me and allow me to share it here with others. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or use our Contact Page.
