Although I was a pretty good kid, I realized when I was 10 during a church service that if I died that night I would not spend eternity in heaven but in hell. I knew that I had sinned, broken the 10 commandments and that this sin would separate me from a Holy God forever.
As I learned that night, Jesus shed His blood to pay for my sins. I was glad to receive this gift, and ask Him into my life to be my Lord and Savior.
I have great peace, knowing my sins are forgiven and I will spend eternity in heaven. I have purpose in life. He is my rock in troubled times. His Word comforts me, guides me, protects and empowers me. He hears my prayers and I see His answers. Knowing Him gives me joy like nothing this world has to offer. I’m so glad I made Him my Lord as a child. That was the day I knew God loved me because of the Cross.
