"How amazing are the deeds of the Lord! All who delight in him should ponder them." -Psalm 111:2 (NLT)

"C.S."
Until I was 19 years old, I had no faith in God. I’d heard of Him, but never believed what I heard. I didn’t care that I had sinned, because I didn’t understand what sin was. I lied all the time, I took without asking, I was deceitful, I was angry at everyone, I lusted, I didn’t care what my parents thought of my actions and choices, and most importantly, everything in my life was more important to me than the God that created us all. I started going to TNT at LCCVI when I went back to high school, and I was exposed to the Ten Commandments. That shook my world. When I saw the Ten Commandments, and realized they were spiritual laws and not just rules, I understood sin. I understood the things I did on a daily basis to be sins. The worst part about it was that I did it all the time, and God knew about every last bit of it. Nothing is hidden from God, not even our thoughts or dreams. And He had seen all of mine. This made me feel pretty guilty, similar to when you let your parents down, but it didn’t yet drive me to the foot of the cross. What really hit me hard, and scared me quite frankly, was the fact that I will one day face God and His perfect judgement, and I will be held accountable for all the things in my life that I now recognize as sin. That scared me. I knew that I could never measure up to the standard that was set before me, even if I was trying to. But I had done everything in my power to do evil things against God, and now I had to think about what would happen when I was forced to own up to it all. Where would I end up upon the delivering of God’s judgment?

Hell.

I had fallen very far away from the Glory of God, and I wouldn’t make it back. Not on my own. That’s where the good part comes in. Now that I had come to realize I was a sinner condemned to Hell in my present state, I was crushed. Convicted most people call it. I was ready to hear the gospel. I was ready for the Good News! Jesus is the Good News. I found out that 2,000 years ago, God came to us in the same image that He created us in, and bore the weight of our sin, because it had to be done if we were going to be with God once again. Ever since being turned away from the Garden of Eden through the original sin, humankind has never been able to do anything that would be worthy of us being in the presence of God. But, Jesus, being perfect and righteous, committed the only act worthy enough to get us right with God. He offered His life to pay the fine that we had been charged. Because of this, Jesus can save us, He offers us a gift of salvation, if we will be humble enough to accept it. When I realized that Jesus was on that cross with nails in His arms that should have been hammered through mine, I was sorry. I repented, because I knew what He had done for me. When I turned away from my sin, and turned my life over to Jesus, I finally had just that…. Life. Without Jesus, all I had was death.
