Open Church: How has Jesus transformed you?

in Christian Fellowship6 months ago

Welcome to church! Open Church is a weekly post that aims to be a place where Christians on Hive can hang out, encourage and build up one another, and reflect the love of Christ. The church is not a building, but is made up of people who have been transformed by God’s grace.

Each week I will be putting up a new post with a new topic or theme for discussion. But feel free to come here just to fellowship and be a blessing to one another. Whatever denominational background your from, or if you’re just curious about the Christian faith, everyone is welcome.

So feel free to share a link to your favourite worship song, share a word of encouragement, a prayer request, or introduce yourself.

Today’s topic is: How has Jesus transformed you?

When the demon-possessed man in the region of the Gerasenes asked to follow Jesus;

Jesus did not let him, but said, “Go home to your own people and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.” (Mark 5:19)

Our testimonies of what Jesus has done for us are powerful. Each one of us has a story, a story of how our story intersected with God’s grand story.

My life before Jesus came into my life was dull, lacked purpose, had no joy, and I was afraid to reveal to others my struggles, weaknesses and who I really was. But Jesus changed all this. You can read my entire story in the pinned post. In short, Jesus has set me free, and now I live with purpose, hope and joy. He has completely transformed me.

How about you? I would like to read about what Jesus has done in your lives too. To Him be the glory.

Blessings

He healed my mother from diabetes and has protected my life from Covid19

That’s wonderful. Praise God.

What a great subject to write and share about... I'll have to put this on my to do list.

Thanks brother. Look forward to it.

Yes Jesus touched me
And my life changed eh eh eh!
Since he touched me
I ve decided to live for him
Every day
When he touched my life
Was cha-nged
Eh eh eh!
And he touched me
My life was changed.

Praise God.

I grew up in church and have always known of Jesus. I really didn't know him all that well until around 5 or so years ago and started studying more about His life, how He lived, what He taught and who He really was.

Here is a few quick things I did learn

  • His Hebrew name is Yeshua....Jesus is Greek and was transliterated from the Hebrew
  • He did not come to teach something new, to go against what was already given by God himself...John 7:16 "Jesus answered them and said, “My doctrine is not Mine, but His who sent Me."

If I truly believed that He is the Messiah and that He died for my sins then I need to follow Him all of Him and not be just a fan of Him but to a follower of Him!

1 John 2:6 "He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked."

And that is what I am trying to do, follow His example.....we only have one example in the Bible of someone who did everything the right way! Even though I fail and need His forgiveness everyday that doesn't stop me from trying to follow Him!

That’s wonderful. Yes, Jesus is worthy of us giving up everything to follow Him. Thanks for sharing.

Jesus has kept me and family alive and protected us, and his words have inspired and motivated us to change our lives for the better.

That’s wonderful. Praise God.

testimonies of this type change lives because it is a lived experience.
