Favourite Bible Verse?
Romans 8 v 38 & 39
"Yes, I am sure that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor ruling spirits, nothing now, nothing in the future, no powers, nothing above us, nothing below us, nor anything else in the whole world will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Why Is It Your Favourite?
This passage was read at my brother's funeral when I was 15, and was a triumphant proclamation in depths of despair. Since then my varied experiences of highs and lows have been that nothing can separate me from God's love and I am still amazed that God loves even me.
How did you become a Christian?
As a child, in a Christian family, I was taught about the love of Jesus. I made a commitment to follow Him at the age of 7 and was baptized at the age of 11. I challenged my faith during my teenage years trying to balance the best of both worlds but came to the conclusion that God had an amazing plan for my life and I wanted to follow and trust Him.
