Daniel Butler's Testimony
Rochester, New York
I have always believed in Jesus, but in my childhood, I would never spend any time praying or reading Scripture. I use to spend most of my day watching TV or playing video games, which was laziness in every aspect, including spiritually. I was addicted to sexual pleasures of the flesh for years. The ways of wrong were in my daily activity. I was disrespectful to my parents. In my speech was filth and profanity. I did not have the Lord in my life.
When I was nineteen, a serious revelation in my commitment to God occurred, I realized that I wanted a stronger relationship with my God. At first I was crushed emotionally thinking it was too late to develop a deep relationship with God. I viewed myself as such a wretched sinner, and I wondered if God would forgive me. I hated the actions I committed in my past. My spirit was crushed, godly sorrows flooded my heart, but then it hit me, God's mercy is everlasting. I cried out to the Lord, asking him for a heart of flesh, soon after things changed.
A deep love for God developed, through the scriptures I was getting to know God and our Lord Jesus Christ. I developed hatred of sin in my daily life. I am in no way perfect, but through Christ who strengthens me, I sin much less, stay away from things of the flesh, and I am spiritually minded. I have, by the mercy of our loving God, been reborn.
I want to help others know truth. I am forever humbled that God's grace came upon me. THANK God our heavenly Father for our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ.
2 Corinthians 7:10 - For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of:
Ezekiel 36:26 - A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
2 Corinthians 4:6 - For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
