As a youth I had everything I could ever want. My family was wonderful and my parents were happily married. I was the youngest of five children who were very close. There was always food, laughter and love to go around. But there was something missing. What that was I did not know until…
God began to speak to me as I listened to a preacher teach about the death of a “rich man and Lazarus”. He told how this rich man was in hell and Lazarus (who had been a begger) was in heaven and this caught my attention. I had thought that my life’s goal was to make money and the more money I made the better. But Jesus used this story to show me that my real treasure was not in things but in Him.
After praying to receive Christ, He has blessed me more than money could ever have. Jesus has given me peace, love, hope, the assurance of heaven, a loving wife, children and so much more. I could not imagine life without Jesus. Why don’t you ask Him to be your Savior?
