It does not require great learning to be a Christian and be convinced of the truth of the Bible. It requires only an honest heart and a willingness to obey God. - Albert Coombs Barnes
I was thirty-nine years old when I accepted Jesus Christ as my Saviour and
King. Even though
I was not raised up in the church I always knew about the Lord.
My wife and son attended church and belonged to the Lord and with their help
and God's I finally
had the courage and strength to give my life over to Him. Looking back, I
wondered why I didn't accept the Lord earlier because now it seems so easy
and the right thing
to do. In different periods of my live I now know God helped me with
drinking and bad influences of
friends and peers.
The years I have known Jesus as Lord and Saviour have not always been filled
I have been through a lot of trials and hard times like being out of work
and having a major
truck accident leaving me toubled in mind, body and spirit. But I thank God
for His word, His
Son, and His Spirit. My Lord has given me hope, love and strength to keep
going and learning
about Him because I need Him more than ever before. I thank Him for my wife
and son and my
brothers and sisters in Christ.
Sometimes life can be a struggle, but we have to hold on to the promises of
God. Never give up and don't quit trusting the Lord Jesus Christ because He's always there for us. Remember the foot prints in the sand.
