Some time after having accepted Jesus as my Savior, the Lord led me to an independent Baptist church in Norfolk, VA where I was baptized. I started reading and meditating on the scriptures. I realized that this was the truth that the world is looking for.
I learned that if you really want the Holy Spirit to teach you the truths of His Word, spend time meditating on scripture!
