The moment you accepted Jesus as your personal Savior – was the exact moment you became righteous by God through the blood of Jesus Christ.
The moment you opened up your heart and mind to the “Son of God” you became redeemed by the blood of the Lamb.
The moment you believed the Word of God you became a child of the King.
The moment you asked the Holy Spirit to enter into your life you were washed as white as snow.
The moment Jesus entered your heart you became a new creation of God’s elect.
That moment in time made all things new and your life was no longer yours.
That moment you were made reconciled by God through the sacrifice of Jesus.
That moment death no longer held you captive for eternity.
That moment all things were new.
That moment was not done by anything you did or didn’t do, but by grace.
That moment was because of the love of God’s Son dying on the cross.
That moment washed you, redeemed you, saved you, and made you righteous by your acceptance of Jesus Christ.
That moment changed your life, in all you do, in all you say, and all you are.
“Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.” Titus 2:14
Being born in the “Big Apple” New York City in 1946, Estelle P. Shrum was at the apex of the baby boomers. She is a retired hospice nurse, Red Cross volunteer, and does health fairs. Ms. Shrum also volunteers for ESL, English as a second language, and volunteers at a food bank.
Ms. Shrum says, “Everyone has a story to tell and my story has a compelling testimony of how you can come from a violent alcoholic family and still conquer all your fears, insecurities, and nightmares. It was not an easy journey for me. I had a real struggle with trusting anyone, especially God. Then I had a divine encounter with the Almighty and I was never the same. My whole purpose in life is to serve the Lord. Praise God, indeed!”
