Just an old book?

The circumstances surrounding someone’s conversion to Christ may vary widely, but it seems to me that there are five elements common to all: conviction of sin; repentance; hearing (or reading) the gospel; the exercise of faith in the finished work of Christ; and a subsequent, evident change in lifestyle. My own conversion occurred in…

Changed from the inside out

What was your life like before you were a Christian? About the age of four, I made a ‘confession of faith’ in Jesus Christ and was baptised. ‘So that was that’, I used to think growing up. I said the right things and prayed every so often. But as I grew up, there were…

A good grief — a personal testimony

Death is the one thing that all people in this world have in common. Death is inevitable for us all, irrespective of our status. And death is the one subject we all try to avoid, but eventually have to face head-on. Only a Christian can look death in the face with a smile. But,…

Called to be a soldier of Jesus Christ

As a boy growing up in Gorslas, many of the people in the area had been changed by God during the 1904 Revival. They were different to the ordinary religious man; their faith and witness was vibrant and they had such zeal for God. All they would talk about was the Lord. This had…

Lasting happiness

Unlike alcohol, success or sport, turning to Jesus has brought me true and lasting happiness. I didn’t have an easy time when I was growing up. My dad died when I was four and, when I was a teenager, I became seriously ill with pneumonia and pleurisy. I was so desperate I asked God for help, but when I…

War and peace

When Britain declared war on Germany in August 1914, there were many who said, ‘It’ll all be over by Christmas!’ People thought it was just a small, local difficulty, as though they were saying, ‘It won’t need a large army to sort it out’. How wrong they were! What began in the balmy days…

A certain destiny

Since her arrival at Number 10 last year, press reports have revealed that way back in the early 1990s Theresa May’s father-in-law predicted she would one day become Prime Minister. She wasn’t even an MP at the time, though she had already embarked on a political career and was a rising star in the…

Jesus Christ is the greatest

A messenger from God announced to his mother Mary, at the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ into the world, that he was going to be great. There is relative greatness and absolute greatness. Snowdon is a relatively great mountain in England and Wales; none is higher. But it is a mere hill compared…

The sweet sound of grace

Hello, my name is Ruth. I’m married to Pete, am a mum, and love to spend my spare time singing, cooking and catching up with friends or family. However, I’ve got to pause there, because although all those things are nice to hear and know, they don’t tell you about my true identity. I…

True freedom

I’m not sure what you think about Christianity or even Christians as you are reading this, but I would like to share with you the way the God of the Bible changed my life in ways I never thought would happen. My upbringing was a Christian one, as both my parents are Bible-believing Christians.…

Sought and found by God

I was born in Wales, United Kingdom. Although sent to Sunday school as a young child (something which I hated!), I never once really heard the gospel message. Strange as it may seem, one can go to some places of worship and yet never hear the message of God’s saving grace. Two things I…

From knowing about Jesus to knowing him

I grew up in a happy home in Malvern with a great family, good friends, and practically everything I wanted, right down to my own horse! We attended the local Church of England fairly often, and I believed I was a good person and good people went to heaven. I’d always believed in God…
