I should have said that i wasnt always a believer in Jesus Christ!
Here is my experience of conversion!
Having been brought up in circumstances where i was taught the truth of the bible from a young age i heard it often but never really took any interest in it. My gran used to tell me when i was about 11 or 12 that i needed to listen to the message and believe ( i used to hate this ).
It wasnt until i was about 15 that i began to think seriously bout life and death and the great hereafter (eternity). I was really afraid of it all and realised that if i died there and then i would be in hell because of my sins. So one night after hearing the gospel preached (i attended gospel meetings) i realised for the first time in my own life that Christ really had come to die for sinners and if i was one that he died for me! (this was after praying to God that he would save me from going to hell forever because i was a sinner and had sinned against HIM)
this experience was on the 9th Feb 1999, i remember it clear! and i can say it has been a life-changing experience, i had new interests, met loads of new friends and have been happy as far as the future is concerned ever since as i now know and am sure i will be in Heaven when my time here is over, not by my good works or anything i have done but what GOD has done for me!
