Do you Belong?...


Wow, I asked God to speak to me this morning as I was reading and Luke 12 was amazing. This chapter brought back memories. I have been wanting to share my testimony of salvation on my blog and today is the day. I was 14 years old in 1976. I was beginning the 9th grade. We, as a family were travelling in a fifth wheel travel trailer and staying at each church for a weeks revival. My dad was an evangelist at that time. Remember those days when churches had a week long revival? Most kids do not remember those days. Anyway, I had supposedly professed that I had been saved when I was 8 years old at camp. I do believe that the age of 14, that I was at the age of accountability, that I understood, that the Holy Spirit was talking to me. I knew the Bible, I knew that if I asked Jesus in my heart that I would be saved. But, it was reading this verse, that I vividly remember, you have got to do this today. The verse was Romans 12:8-9 "I tell you, whoever acknowledges me before men, the Son of Man will also acknowledge him before the angels of God. But he who disowns me before men will be disowned before the angels of God." I think walking down that aisle at church was the hardest thing I have ever done, but I did, because I wanted others to know that I was acknowledging God before men and that I did not want to be disowned...I remember praying with my dad, asking Jesus to come into my heart and save me and I remember a weight being lifted from me. That was a long time ago, but it so vivid. I know I have made many, many mistakes in my life, but I do know that I absolutely, without a doubt, am going to Heaven, and that I WILL confess before men, that I love "my God". If this blog post finds you without Jesus in your heart, all you have to do is: Romans 10:9 "That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved".


SURELY,
