I didn’t realize that God had more for me than not going to hell. I knew at an early age that Jesus Christ died for my sins and I needed his forgiveness for my salvation. I turned from my sin and recieved his forgiveness, and knew that my home would be in heaven when I died. But that is not the end of the story. It is really the beginning. My wife and I had everything a person could want: a beautiful house, two new cars, and a motorcycle. It seemed that I had everything I needed to be happy.
But I knew something was missing. I even had the assurance of heaven, but my everyday life was lacking in fulfillmet and contentment. Then I made a wonderful discovery. God wanted to have a vital, daily relationship with me. He wanted me to have more that the assurance of heaven.He wanted me to know him and follow him on a moment by moment walk. He showed me that he was in control of all things.
I needed to cling to him for everything in life, not just in death. Now my life has not only the assurance of salvation but also every day he is my guide, my Lord, my joy and my hope. I can trust him because he has proven over and over again his will is the best thing for my life. That is my wish for all who read this story that you will know Christ as savior and more importantly lord of your life.
