​I was raised in a church sponsored orphanage. We had to go to church every time the doors were open; Sundays morning and evening, Wednesday night, Friday night, and all revival services that generally run weeks at a time. I would go to the alter many times to pray because I thought that is what I was supposed to do. So I always thought I was a Christian, because I was doing what I was taught to do to be a Christian.

In August this year Brother Jimmy preached several sermons on what it means to truly trust in God and if you died would you know for a fact that you would go to heaven. God convicted me of playing church. On August the  31st during our normal Bible reading I was talking to Shirley about how I felt. She asked me if I had actually asked God to come into my life and forgive me of my sins and be Lord of my life. I thought about it and realized I had not done that. We prayed together and I asked Jesus to forgive me of my sins and take control of my life and he did. I thank God for his forgiveness and his saving power.

​I wanted to tell everybody about my salvation, the first thought was what will people think since I have been going to church all of these years. The fact is there are many people warming a church bench and have not asked God to forgive their sins and be Lord of their life and will be lost when they stand before God.

 

There’s more to life than breathing and feeling – Real life is only found in Jesus Christ.
