Ultimately, our lives hinge on the ability to make right choices and decisions. By God's grace, I made the most important decision a person can ever make. I invited Jesus Christ to be Lord of my life and made a commitment to follow Him. God offers each of us the free gift of eternal life through faith in Jesus by "confessing with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believing in your heart that God raised him from the dead" (Romans 10:9). It is a wonderful and peaceful feeling to serve a God who loves me and cares about every detail of my life.
My Christian life has been full of ups and downs. God does not promise you will never again experience trials, instead He tells us "rejoice in our sufferings because we know that suffering produces perseverance, perseverance character, and character hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out His love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit whom He has given us" (Romans 5:3-5).
Let me encourage you to step back and take an honest look at your life. If you died today, what assurance do you have that you will be in heaven? Today, you can be sure. Not by trying to earn your own way, but by accepting the free gift from God and placing your faith in Jesus Christ and nothing else. Jesus said, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the father except through me" (John 14:6).
Favorite Bible verse: Jeremiah 9:23
"Let not the wise man boast of his wisdom or the strong man boast of his strength or the rich man boast of his riches, but let he who boasts boast in this; that he understands and knows me, that I am the God who exercised kindness, justice and righteousness on the earth, for in these I delight."
