53 Years in God's Family

April 6th is always a special day for me! It was 53 years ago on April 6th, 1952 that I made the most important decision that any person can make! It was on a Sunday morning, after listening to a Christian radio program, that I invited Jesus Christ to come into my life and take control. Even though I was only 6 years old at the time, the Holy Spirit revealed to me that I needed a Savior and that Christ had died in my place at Calvary. My mother had the joy and pleasure of praying with me that morning and I was "born again" by God's Holy Spirit. Mom is still alive and well. Dad was called home to be with the Lord almost 13 years ago. I thank God for godly parents who nurtured me in the "things of the Lord".

Life's Most Important Decision

I'll be celebrating today...giving thanks to God for "His unspeakable gift". Have you made that decision to allow Christ to take control of your life? He is waiting to come in and transform you, giving you peace, joy, contentment and hope for the future. Trust Him today!

The following "post" was written on the 50th anniversary of my conversion. Check it out!
