I grew up in a Baptist Church, so I knew all about Jesus even as a child. Around age 8 or 9 I began to realize that although I knew a lot about Him, I didn’t personally know Jesus. I knew that my life was empty and that I was missing something very important. I was full of fear and had no peace.
I gave my life to Christ while my best friend and I were playing after church. Through her concern for me and the feeling that God was drawing me close to Himself, I prayed and invited Him into my life. There are no words really to explain the peace and joy that flooded my heart! Now I knew Jesus in a very real and personal way and I felt so clean and new.
Accepting Christ is absolutely the best thing that has ever happened to me! He has a purpose for my life and He is with me through it all. There is no fear about what happens when I die because I know I’ll be with Him. He fills my heart with joy and love and He wants so much to do the same for you.
