For most of my life, I believed I was a Christian. I attended Sunday School and church regularly. When I was in my late 60’s, I realized something was missing in my life.
One Sunday afternoon, I called a pastor friend, asking him to come to our house to talk. He explained the plan of salvation to me, and there in my living room, I asked Jesus to forgive me of my sins and accepted Him as Lord and Savior.
The difference it has made in my life is incredible. The desire to be baptized was urgent, so a week later, I was baptized. I realized later that God was preparing me for the ordeal I was to go through soon after that. He has been there to strengthen and comfort me ever since. He is my joy and my friend and I know He will always be there.
