The Truth Be Told
Clubber Shares Favorite Verse & Testimony
I would like to share my testimony so that more children will know to love and serve the Lord Jesus Christ. I am 21 years old and was saved when I was fourteen. In my childhood I have participated in Awana for three years. I have good memories of playing the Awana games which I loved, sports and practicing soccer.
Celina Ruiz was the leader of my book time and she taught me many verses which I am so thankful that she did. I realized that God used her to help me understand salvation and the Christian life.
My favorite memory verse and one that has impacted me the most is, "For it is by grace that you have been saved, through faith and this not by yourselves, it is the gift from God, not by works so that no one can boast." Ephesians 2: 8-9
I remember this being the key verse for flames. It is my foundation. I know clearly that God saved me without works in return. It is a gift for me that requires no effort on my part. God sacrificed His son for us. This and other truths of the word of God have changed the way I see life.
These last two years, I was able to participate in Awana clubs at my church as a leader. God impacting the lives of the children and witnessing their spontaneous responses is such a rewarding experience for me.
At this moment I have decided to be involved in the foundation of the church full time. I will be taking care of the children that are high risk. Awana is a good ministry which allows children to hear the Gospel. I want to encourage that we all should contine to support Awana. To contribute so that many more children will have the opportunity to know, love and serve Christ.
