Testimony and Invitation

When I was 12 years old, the pastor came to our house to ask if I would be baptized with my sister and cousin as they didn’t want to do that without me. He asked me if I ever asked Jesus in my heart and I told him no, but I would be baptized so my sister and cousin would. The pastor told me to come down the isle Sunday and someone would pray with me then they would schedule the baptism. SO I did, and I prayed only to do what I needed to do so my sister and cousin would be baptized. Years later, I questioned my salvation because it wasn’t of my own will that sought Jesus but out of duty. I did not come to Jesus until I was 18. Yes, I can give you dates, times and places but I do know that the first time I prayed was not real, it was not me seeking Jesus but the approval to get baptized. Diana

If you are not 100% sure when you die you would go to heaven, you need to make sure of yourself salvation.

You must admit you are a sinner. Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Believe that Jesus died on the cross, was buried, and rose again. Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

Then call upon the name of the Lord. Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Lord Jesus, I admit I am a sinner. I believe you died on the cross for forgiveness of my sins. I ask that you forgive my sins, come into my heart and make my life new. I receive you as my Savior. Thank you Jesus. Amen
