Practice Makes Perfect!

By March 12, 2024No Comments

The old adage “practice makes perfect” came to mind as we read Cliff & Chris’ story! Enjoy the story of the day Chris exchanged records with Jesus, making him acceptable to God.

 “For by one offering He [Jesus] forever made perfect those who are being made holy.”(Hebrews 10:14)

Believe it or not, this amazing event happened during role playing at Victory Baptist in Walhala, SC. Yes! Chris, a guest that evening, was observing Cliff and Pastor Tom as they practiced giving the gospel. Chris began answering the questions. So, Cliff wisely began to direct the questions his way. Chris’ answers were so sincere that Cliff decided to take him to a more private setting where he shared the gospel truths of God’s holiness, justice, love and grace. When Chris saw the Exchange chart, depicting his personal sins on one side and Jesus’ perfect record on the other, he realized the amazing depths of the love of God. Suddenly, Chris threw his arms around Cliff and said, “I want Jesus to get rid of my sins. I’m a bad person because….” He began to list sins. It was a light-bulb moment. The Holy Spirit was doing just what He promised He would do – convict of sin, righteousness and judgment (Jn. 16:8)

As Chris placed his faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross, he experienced just what it means to be justified – declared righteous. On November 12, 2023 Chris was baptized and continues to grow in Christ through the ministry of Victory Baptist.
