“Favorite Verses”

Tom Harris shares his testimony today.

One of my favorite Bible verses is Psalms 115:4-7

“Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands.  They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not:  They have ears, but they hear not:  noses have they, but they smell not:  They have hands, but they handle not:  feet have they, but they walk not:  neither speak they through their throat.’

I see myself as one of these stone statues most of my life.  I was born and raised a very strict Catholic, and I always said in my own defense that I was born a Catholic and I would die a Catholic.  I had knelt down to worship and pray and even lit votive candles to these stone gods in my life.  I was just like them, DEAD.  I would attend church services every Sunday.  I went to church empty and I went home empty.  There was nothing in my life, past, present or in the future.  I was a real disaster.  Then I met and married Tanya, my wife, who was a Christian.  She had never pressured me into becoming a Christian.  Now that I think back, she did plant the seed and watered it.  Then I met Pastor James May and Pastor Don Walton.  They both fertilized the seed that was planted.  Then Jesus knocked on the door of my heart and I invited Him to come into my life.  I was engulfed by the Holy Spirit.  I gave my life, all of me, to Jesus and asked Him to forgive me of all my sins.  What a glorious day!

(Wow!  What a testimony.  Do we live Jesus?)
