Born Again: Tuesday, June 22, 1976
Where: At the Altar in Church
When I was a child, my parents took me to church regularly.
I grew up believing in God and knowing that Jesus died for our sins.
In a revival one night, I realized that if I had not been saved (and I knew
that I had not) then I was God's enemy. I realized I was a sinner who needed
God just as much as anyone else ever did. Previously, I knew I needed to
be "saved" but I thought since my parents took me to church and
I was a good person that I had an advantage over other "sinners."
I thought I was not as bad as other people. I was wrong. A person is either
"For" God or "Against" God.
After I knelt in the altar to pray, I soon forgot about everyone praying
around me. I was praying to God for myself. I asked God to save me. I was
willing to do anything if God would just save me. I was determined to stay
there as long as it took for Him to save me.
God saved me that night - Tuesday, June 22, 1976. I felt incredible peace
like I have never known before or since that night. I had peace with God.
The Lord is righteous in all His ways,
and holy in all His works. The Lord is nigh unto all them that call upon
Him, to all that call upon Him in truth. Psalm 145:17-18
