Finding Out Who We Are in Light of Who Jesus Christ Is

A Brief Testimony About God's Grace in My Life

by Chris Lawson (Updated May 4, 2016)

 
 
 
"And he said to them all, If any man will come after me,
let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me."
- Jesus (Luke 9:23)

I have written the following in order that Jesus might increase, and I may decrease, and that by a brief summary of my personal testimony, your interest might be peaked to look more into Who and What Jesus Christ really is. Numerous Scripture references 'About Jesus Christ' are listed after this introduction about God intervening in my life.

First off, life sailed along at a rapid pace for a number of years in my youth. Ever-seeking the "next best thing" that could launch me forward and further in this life. I continued steadfastlky on, yet always came up empty handed - internally, emotionally and spiritually!

Surfing, partying, traveling, transforming my old jeep into a mud-stomper, cruising to new surf spots, and studying to make the grades were all secondary in my pursuit of fortune and fame in the modeling industry. All the things I chased after - always - left me empty. Then one day when everything changed, I surrendered to the Lord Jesus Christ!

 

You see, for a very long time I had been wrong in my own opinion of who I was, and what I was, and about where I came from and where I am going. Oh how incredibly wrong I was, and how incredibly wrong we all are, until we met the real Jesus Christ, the Risen Author of Life!

Whether one claims to be a non-believer or a professing Christian, one thing is certain at the end of each day:

"You can be right in every area of theology, but if you are wrong in your theology of God you are wrong enough to lose your soul for all of eternity."

- Dr. Walter Martin (Original Bible Answer Man and author of Kingdom of the Cults)

No matter where we are in life, no matter how much money we make, no matter how popular we are, and no matter how much we pursue popularity and the things of this world, we will always remain empty, lost and destined for hell. It is only when we yield to Jesus Christ and allow Him to be our Lord and Savior, that life really has any lasting and true meaning and purpose. Only He can save us form ous sins and only He can transform our lives from the inside out. It was the biblical Jesus of Nazareth said:

“Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

To be born again means to be "born from above." In other words, to be made spiritually alive in Christ and to be spiritually regenerated inwardly, by God's grace and power within the human spirit. Literally, to be made spiritually alive and no longer dead in trespasses and sins (Ephesians 2).

In John 3:1-18 Jesus speaks to a religious leader who needed true salvation, not the standard religiosity that seems to characterize every epoch in time and religious person who do not know the Living Christ. One simply cannot trust in ones own efforts to attain salvation; God's provision through His Son Jesus Christ is needed.

Hear the words of the risen Christ, who has conquered Satan, sin and the power of death (emphasis added):

"There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him.”  Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?” Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”

Nicodemus answered and said to Him, “How can these things be?”  Jesus answered and said to him, “Are you the teacher of Israel, and do not know these things? Most assuredly, I say to you, We speak what We know and testify what We have seen, and you do not receive Our witness. If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things? No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in heaven. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but[b] have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.” - John 3:1-21

What must you do to be "saved" from Satan, sin, death and hell? 

"Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved..." - Acts 16:31

This is excatly what I did when I was 19 years old; I trusted wholeheartedly in the Lord Jesus Christ to save me from the power of Satan, sin, death and hell. My guilt has been forgiven, I have forever been changed, and I look forward to the day when I will see my Lord Jesus, face-to-face in glory.

God's promises are true, and Jesus is coming again!
