My story is just like that of any other Christian and is described quite well in these verses from Zecharaiah Chapter 3.
 
"Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at his right side to accuse him. The Lord said to Satan, “The Lord rebuke you, Satan! The Lord, who has chosen Jerusalem, rebuke you! Is not this man a burning stick snatched from the fire?” Now Joshua was dressed in filthy clothes as he stood before the angel. The angel said to those who were standing before him, “Take off his filthy clothes.” Then he said to Joshua, “See, I have taken away your sin, and I will put fine garments on you.” Then I said, “Put a clean turban on his head.” So they put a clean turban on his head and clothed him, while the angel of the Lord stood by.

You see, I was once clothed in sin and shame.  Not only was I born in sin, but I continued living in it as well.  There was much that Satan could say to accuse me but the Lord plucked me from the fire, forgave  me all my sin, clothed me with garments of salvation and a robe of righteousness.  He did this in love, all for the sake of Christ Jesus who took my punishment on the cross and rose again on the third day so that I could be free.  My life stands as a witness to God's faithfulness.  Amen!
