**Reading these two posts there is a clear differencebetween the two. One is evidentiary of afalse conversion and the other is evidentiary of true salvation.
Amazing Grace, How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now am found
T’was blind but now I see.
Wow. Wow, wow, wow.
This was four years ago today, before I knew the Lord and before I was able to understand how ridiculously flawed my reasoning was that kept me cozy and assured in my sin. I had no idea what I was talking about. I knew that I loved what the Bible deemed ‘sin’ but trusted that the problem couldn’t possibly be me. I refused to consider that I may not have actually been saved at all. I refused to examine my life in light of scripture actually said and instead twisted it so suit me. I was condemned and had a crowd of people supporting me as I stood in absolute opposition to the Creator who, by His grace alone, would one day save me from myself. He’d predestined to open my eyes to my sin and my own heart. He allowed me to see that I cherished everything before Him and that His holiness that demanded my total surrender. I don’t deserve the mercy He’s shown me. I don’t deserve for Him to love someone who made such a mockery of Him for so long. But God comes after His sheep. Praise Him for that, brethren. We were far off, but He brought us near. Continue sharing the gospel and the truth about sin, church. If He saved me, He can save anyone.
