ELDER MOZINGO WRITES: Although I have always believed from earliest childhood in the being of God and possessed an intellectual understanding of the Doctrines from my youth, I well remember the dramatic experience I had in passing from Law to Grace. It is the teaching of scripture and this experience that causes me to hold so tenaciously to the Doctrine of Salvation by Sovereign Grace. After many years of dwelling at Mt. Sinai being terrified by the lightnings and thunderings of His Holy Majesty and Justice, my poor afflicted soul was driven to the foot of Calvary. There I saw the only hope of ruined sinners, Jesus Christ. Falling upon my knees I confessed to the Almighty that I had norighteousness to plead, that if I was not one of the elect, there was nothing I could do, that if Jesus Christ was not my Savior I had none, that my only hope of ever living with God in peace was that Jesus died for me, that if I was not one of the elect and Jesus did not die for me there was nothing I could do about it, that if he died for me all the devils in hell could not keep me from heaven and if he did not die for me then neither I nor all the angels of Heaven could save me. Oh how wonderful the moment! How glorious was the scene when the burden of innumerable sorrows and fears was lifted from me! How enraptured was my poor soul with the wondrous joys of knowing that He did for me what I could not do for myself Although I firmly believe the Lord quickened me at a very early stage of my life, when I was yet too young to be aware, it was this experience of passing from law to grace that I count as the time I starting living by faith. I am less than the least of all saints and unworthy to be called a Minister of the Gospel. Yet how eternally grateful I am that the Lord has been so mercifully good to me and blessed me to say with the hymn writer, "My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus' blood and righteousness...On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand."
