Born again!

Testimony from Richard Payne

“One of our clients from Harpenden Money Advice has given his life to the Lord. At the time I was with Eunice, from Christchurch, where they’ve been encouraging people to ask: “If you could ask God one question what would it be?”

So Eunice asked him and he replied, “I wouldn’t ask Him anything, He’s God, who am I to ask Him anything?” 

This man had spent the past ten years bed-ridden because he’s paralysed, and he saw no sense in questioning God about his condition. So Eunice shared the Gospel with him, and he said, “So that is what the cross was all about.” 

I asked him if he would like to give his life to the Lord and he said “yes”.

Neil and I saw him a couple of days later and he said that night he’d slept like a baby, for the first time in a very long while, because the weight was lifted from his mind. Previously he had been saying sorry to God every day, because he felt so bad about the life that he had lived. However, he now realised that he was forgiven and didn’t have to keep saying sorry.

A friend of his also went to see him and asked “what happened to you, you’re very cheerful?” What an awesome demonstration of God’s grace.”
