I have been a Christian my entire life, but my lifestyle had not been a worthy representation for Christ even though the Lord had blessed me.
I was a CEO in a non-profit organization and had tried my best to be a good influence for my employees and those I served. But I lived a secret life dominated by pot smoking, alcohol, and pornography. I knew I was leading a double life. Needless to say, despite my best intentions, I lost my job, my reputation was tarnished, and all that I had built up was torn down.
During that time, I kept asking God to forgive me and change my heart. I knew I couldn’t become the person I wanted to be without the help of the Holy Spirit. But no matter how much I tried, I couldn’t change my behavior. Then, I found your program on television and as I listened to your teaching on God’s grace, my spirit started to stir within me. It took many months of listening before anything changed in my life.
Pastor Prince, your message of grace was the turning point for me. When I heard God loves me and cares for me even as I struggled with my sins, my heart was moved, and I knew it was time to change. You said to remind myself, even in my sin, that I am the righteousness of God in Christ. I did that and I also started partaking of the holy Communion daily. I also received a vision that inspired me to change the way I was living.
With the help of the Holy Spirit, I lost the desire to smoke pot, drink, and watch pornography! Today I am delivered from my shameful addictions and have joined a local church where I can enjoy the company of fellow believers. I earnestly seek God’s will for me and ask for Him to complete the plan He has started in me.
Thank you, Pastor Prince, for your teachings because they changed my life so that I could become the person God wants me to be. For the rest of my life, I wish to serve God and be an instrument of His grace and love. God bless you for reminding me how much God loves me.
