Share your testimonies

So this week I just thought why not share each other testimonies to help and encourage one another to keep on going strong in Christ

I hope you don’t find this too boring I just though it share it with you first how God changes my life so here goes.

I was born into a Christian home but I never really liked Jesus or understood Him and I always HATED going to church. Like literally sometimes I would fake being sick so I wouldn’t have to go that’s how much I hated it and I don’t know why.

So when I was 4 my dad died and then when I was about 9 my brother died leaving me an only child (not to mention all the siblings that had died before I was born). The sad thing is that I didn’t even mind my brother dying because he always hurt me physically and had never really wanted my mom to have me In the first place.

So anyway I kind of became depressed and wouldn’t talk to most people and again I have no idea why. My mom tried to take to to see a couple of therapists but that never helped

I was twelve the first time i tried to kill myself. I remember putting a scissors on my wrist and just as I was about to do it something inside me just stopped me. Like I couldn’t do it no matter how hard I tried . Then I tried again and the same thing happened and I eventually just gave up trying but I was still depressed.

Then one day ( I can’t go into much detail about this) but someone was trying to kill me and God saved me. He told me He loved me and He saved my life and that’s when I finally understood who God was.

Of course I didn’t change overnight but I became a completely different person. I started smiling more and being happier because God was so good to me and my depression just left me. I studied the Bible more and I finally understood that Christianity wasn’t a religion but a relationship with God.

So that’s my story. Comment your testimonies below

Week 3 bible study

These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.””

‭‭John‬ ‭16:33‬

How often are you faced with trials and temptations in your lives on a daily basis? How often do you feel like giving up when you’re faced with these things? Well fear not. This weeks verse shows us that it’s normal to feel these things but we should never be afraid or be sad or even lose hear because Jesus has already overcome the world. There is nothing that should frighten you or overwhelm you knowing that no matter what happens to you, Jesus has already won the war.

Dealing with peer pressure

Proverbs 1 verse 10-15

My son, if sinners entice you, Do not consent. If they say, “Come with us, Let us lie in wait for blood, Let us ambush the innocent without cause; Let us swallow them alive like Sheol, Even whole, as those who go down to the pit;

We will find all kinds of precious wealth, We will fill our houses with spoil; Throw in your lot with us, We shall all have one purse,” My son, do not walk in the way with them Keep your feet from their path,

Peer pressure is a big part of being a teenager. It can either be good or bad but more often than not it’s bad. Here’s what the Bible says

“For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?”

Mark 8:36

What good will it do if you go along with peer pressure but loose yourself In the process. As followers of Christ we have been set apart from this world. We don’t have to go along with it.

“because “All flesh is as grass, And all the glory of man as the flower of the grass. The grass withers, And its flower falls away

“But the word of the LORD endures forever.”

I Peter 1:24 -25

You don’t ever have to sarcome to peer pressure because all the things you’re being pressured to do will fade away soon and you’ll fade away with them if you go along with it.

You might be thinking ‘what if I just smoke that cigarette and then ask God for forgiveness later even though I know it’s not right?’

Look at this

James 4:17 So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin

It’s best to just stay away from the people that give you peer pressure. It doesn’t matter if that makes you an outcast and people don’t like you because people aren’t meant to like you as a Christian. If you find it hard to say no to peer pressure Pray and ask God to give you a clean heart, a clean mind and a new spirit that hate sin.

Week 2

Proverbs 17 verse 22

A merry heart does good, like medicine,

But a broken spirit dries the bones.

It’s hard to be joyous and happy when faced with trials and temptations but we should do it anyway. Sadness and anger and depression are bad for us both spiritually and physically so we should try to find joy in God. Find joy in knowing that God is good and that no matter what you’re going through, God will always bring you out of it if you focus on Him and praise Him constantly. He promised He would and God NEVER breaks His promises

Weekly bible study

This week is

Matthew 16:24-26

Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life[a] will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.  For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul?

With Jesus it’s all or nothing. You can’t go into a relationship with Him or follow Him and being along all the weight of your sins. You need to let go of the world completely. Let go of the sin that weighs you down and follow Jesus. Sure it might be hard but Jesus will always help you get through it if you ask. So take up your cross. Deny yourself and your worldly pleasures and lists completely and follow Jesus 🤗
