Based on the description of the thread,I am posting this here.
I am going to be very blunt on this post,because of the things I have undergone in receiving christ in my life were hardest of all.
I come from an atmosphere where believing in christ is considered as pathetic and useless.Not even one person around me is there to help me to grow in christ and to live what its like being a genuine christian.At my place,people become christians because to get money even when they have enough of their,they run fake orphanages in the name of jesus to get funds and misuse them from their self purposes.
Bottom line,being a christian in my place is like living a life in hell.
I can't discuss how I came into christ,But I am going to tell everybody how a little scripture has changed my entire life and gave me the courage to live the life according to christ.
Before I say that I should tell you clearly about myself.
I am a born pervert,I was born to a father,whose background is from the prostitutes ( people who used to be prostitutes to the kings),people from this family have no limits,they sleep with any one they want.A lot of sexual sin is on their backgrounds.
But the only thing that has saved me was my mother's little faith and her prayers to god.Even my mother prayers cant help though it is only by god's will that we are saved...continuing the previous matter ,My mother comes from a rich landlord's family.Their family background is good,people with good attitudes and warm heart.But they all are something called "Factionists" in our regional language,so lot of blood has been shed from their hands.
If you consider the sin from the backgrounds I have come from,I should be slaughtered alive just after the moment I was born.
But it's god's pure love and mercy which is upon my mother and me which has made me to get purified in his holy blood.
So After getting baptised.I tried to stay holy on myself by resisting my thoughts etc,but all has got invain and
I cried at Jesus saying that I cant live a holy life because of the perverted nature I have and also the pride I got inside me,I cried out because there was no one to help me.It was walking through wilderness,i should depend only upon my instincts and my actions.So I was crying at jesus and I don't even have enough knowledge on bible and don't know how to understand bible also.But somehow I just opened bible and started reading and when I was reading luke and this point has got my eyes and it is the basic scripture in my life which has been the source to my strength.
But He said, "The things that are impossible with people are possible with God"
After going through lot of articles on the internet about this scripture,Luke 18 :27
I found that it is impossible for a man to live a holy life on his own,
it is only by the help of holy spirit a man can live a holy life.
From that day onwards I did not fear for what I am but I just prayed to god to give me strength in the holy name of jesus and make me courageous and strong from the power of holyspirit.And yes I am strong now.
Even though my current situation is still under a lot of pain and did not see any success in my life,but god's strength is increasing day to day and I can feel a miracle is waiting near by for me and hope the good days are coming for me.
So what I want to say by this,
if you are feeling helpless like me
just go through this scripture.
But He said, "The things that are impossible with people are possible with God : Luke 18: 27
God is there to help to make u strong and courageous.
