One of the greatest conversion stories is the one of Augustine, who lived in the fourth century. He wrote what may be the first Christian autobiography, which is
known as Augustine's
He told about his wicked, immoral life before coming to Christ, and the great change Jesus brought to his heart.
Soon after Augustine's conversion, he was walking down the street and passed by a prostitute whom he had known very well. She called but he would not answer. He
kept right on walking.
She called out to him again, "Augustine, it is I."
Without missing a beat and with the assurance of Christ in his heart, he replied, "Yes, but it is no longer I."
Praise God for the changes that He has made in your life.
Have a great day, and keep moving forward!

As you pray …
Thank God for not only forgiving your past, but redeeming it for His glory.
Ask for His power to stop allowing your yesterdays to control you today.
Praise Him for the glorious future you share with Jesus Christ.
