All Things Have Become New
Hi! My name is Byron. I am a new creation in Christ Jesus! Old things have become new! Amen!
I got saved 21 years ago, 18 of those years were lived as a carnal Christian. I could not separate myself from my sin. My roots were shallow and Satan knew that! I could not stand fast in the test and storms of life. I was walking by sight! I had to change; I could not do it myself.
For 3 years I was incarcerated at York County Prison. I was separated from the rest of the world and I had nothing. I wanted to understand God's ways, trust and obey His commandments, and wait on His timing. I had long periods of Bible reading, meditating on His word, praying, worshipping and getting involved in ministries.
The "Discipline of Sanctification" was what I believe God showed me. The results of a disciplined life sanctified in Christ Jesus is; love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. If I live in the spirit, I will also walk in the spirit. Galatians 5:22-25
God's Word tells me: the good work He started in me He will bring it to completion! Philippians 6:1 In October 2010, I came to the YRM straight from prison.
Being at the Mission is very humbling. I am so grateful and desperate too. I feel like I am on training ground here at the Mission, working and walking out my salvation. God is still working in me and through me. I pray that God will continue to use me until I leave this world or Jesus comes back for his bride.
