August 2018 Baptism Testimony

Douglass Pipkin -

I always had a superficial relationship with Jesus and only sought Him through foxhole prayers.

In February I turned to Him when no one else could save me from the horrors I had created in my life. He sent me an angel of forgiveness. He began to move mountains in my life and brought me back from the depths of my personal hell.

He has forgiven and does forgive me long before I fall to my knees in the morning and beg him for it.

I know today with every fiber of my being that Jesus loves the ragamuffin that I am.  And if he so willingly and powerfully saved a wretch like me, all are worthy of His grace and forgiveness.

I struggle still to get out of my own way.  Sometimes because of the wonderful and amazing life He’s redeemed in me. I forget it wasn’t me who did this, it wasn’t me who brought me back from death, it was my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
