About The Messenger

Originally from Louisiana, now living in Arkansas, I am just a sinner saved by grace through Jesus. I am no better than anyone else, we are all sinners. As it says in (Luke 16:15), “what people value highly is detestable in Gods sight”. None of us are good. We all need salvation through Jesus.

 

I was saved in my early 20’s but I never grew as a Christian mainly because I did not understand The Holy Spirit. I did not for many years take the time to actually read The Word myself nor did I try to gain an understanding of The Holy Spirit and His reason for being in my life as a Christian. I only went to Church occasionally. I only prayed occasionally. I lived as a defeated Christian and I sinned allot during these years, making mistakes and doing some things that were not just mistakes but were simply very wrong. All were Sin. I lived as a lost person even though I was saved. I was married more than once and was the one more at fault on 3 divorces. I also had a very dysfunctional view of what a man should be, a view that came from family and a view the world teaches us.

 

Over the past 3 years or so I finally got serious with God. He used 2 events in my life to humble me, a very bad relationship with a narcissist/jezebel spirit and the company I was working for many years went under. Although stressful at the time, I am now thankful those 2 events occurred (Romans 8:28). I read The Word daily (2 Timothy 3:14-17) and I have a very active prayer life (Philippians 4:6) (Colossians 4:2). I was led to a Church of which I now attend regularly (Hebrews 10:25) (Matthew 18:20). I now understand what The Word teaches a real man should be (1 Timothy 6:11) (1 Corinthians 16:13). I most importantly now have a very close relationship with The Holy Spirit (John 14:15-17, John 14:26, Acts 1:8, Acts 2:38), I understand I can not navigate this fallen world without him (James 1:22-25). I understand more now what sin can do to a persons life (Proverbs 8:13), it has wreaked havoc in my family’s life, in my immediate family’s life and in my life. My sin also adversely affected my children. Sin doesn’t only affect the one person, it affects everyone around them.

 

Jesus died for me that day on the cross (John 3:16) and I was forgiven of all my sins when I accepted The Gift of salvation through Jesus (Romans 10-9-10). Jesus is the ONLY way to Heaven (John 3:16, John 14:6, Acts 4:12). I am still not anywhere close to perfection, never will be in this world but I am growing/maturing in my walk (Hebrews 6:1). Now that I listen to and obey The Holy Spirit (James 1:22), He has led me to do things for The Glory of God and learn to live a better life in this fallen world (Colossians 3:23-24). Just Get ‘Em Saved is something He has led me to work on over the past year…...It is about Jesus, not me (1 Corinthians 10:31).
