For example, my ‘come to Jesus moment’ was as a child of 6 years old. I had come home from a Sunday morning meeting and prayed and asked Jesus into my heart before the evening meeting. I couldn’t tell you the time of year or the words that I said, but, I can tell you why and how I felt. In those days (early 1970’s) the Ministers I heard speak, my parents and my grandparents all fervently believed that Jesus could return at any time. We would often go out of the morning meeting in the expectation that Jesus could return even before the evening meeting. I am guessing that this was the message had been given during that Sunday morning service because I remember the overwhelming desire to enter into a relationship with God before the evening meeting. I had heard this told so many times before, so, in the way a 6-year-old does, I just copied what I had heard, a simple yes, but non-the less a real and permanent commitment. I remember clearly running to the Minister that evening to tell him what I had done, and I remember him lifting me from the ground and swinging me round in his arms with joy.
So, what is your 'come to Jesus story' and what is it that is important about the story to you? Have you gone through the process of accepting that; you cannot be right with God on your own merit by what you do – the bible tells us that we can never be good enough to be right before God on our own (by our deeds or actions), as the goal is just too high, even for those who manage to be ‘mega good’ – just look at the ten commandments in Exodus 20 and how even King David a man after God’s own heart couldn’t keep them all the time. Do you believe God exists and that Jesus of Nazareth is the Son of the Living God? The bible is God’s word and it tells us that Jesus died and rose again for us to be made right with God and to be able to enter into the same type of friendship/companionship with Him that Adam, Moses and Elijah had, to name a few. Have you confessed that Jesus is now part of your life forever and that in doing so you are a ‘Child of God’? The bible tells us that this is ultimately what happens when we follow the simple yet profound instructions found in Romans and that by doing so we are adopted into God’s family through Jesus His Son. Amen.
It is important that you have a ‘Come to Jesus story’ of your own and that way you will know that one day, you are going to spend forever (eternity) with Jesus in heaven. Amen
