Truth That Matters

"What will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?" - Jesus Christ

Siby's Testimony

I was born in 1981. My parents were believers in Jesus Christ, and instructed me about God's ways. When I was around 14, I decided that I wanted to follow God and be his disciple and so I testified to others in the church that my parents were part of.

As I finished my studies and began to work, I began to drift away from God. The world and all its fun seemed more attractive than living according to God's ways. Parties at pubs with friends and colleagues seemed more fun than church. My life began to be characterized by double standards - I was allowing myself to adopt a lifestyle which was different from what God wants a person to have. Eventually I became fed up with guilt and frustration. I wanted to change but was not sure how.

In November 2005, I attended a youth camp, and that was what God used to get me back to Him. After a sermon about the love that God has for us, and how Jesus Christ expressed that love for us when He died, paying the penalty of our sins, I was overcome with remorse for the life that I'd been living. I spent hours weeping and confessing my sins to God.

God's restoration was beautiful. He gave me a new life and filled me with love for Him. I resolved to live the rest of my life under Him, always seeking His will.
