My Testimony.png

When I was around the age of six, I was sitting in my Sunday School class, half-listening as my teacher told another story. Suddenly, I realized she had asked a question, for everyone but me was raising one hand. The other lady that helped in our SS class, took me by the hand and led me out into the big chapel area. "You aren't saved?" she asked me. Confused, I shook my head. "Would you like to be?" she asked. I nodded, remembering that everyone else in the class had said that they were saved. I really didn't have any idea what she was talking about.

We knelt down at the pew, and she told me to repeat the words of her prayer. I did, though I can't remember them because at the time, they really didn't mean anything to me. After saying, "Amen," the lady rose, hugged me, told me I was saved, and led me back into the classroom. I understand that she meant well, but I left the class that day thinking I was saved, yet not even understanding what salvation was.

A few weeks later, a friend and I were playing at Day Care. Somehow, we started talking about salvation. I don't remember the specifics, but I do remember that we got into a fight about it. He was telling me that salvation was accepting Jesus into your heart as Lord and Savior. I informed him that he was wrong, and salvation was just saying a prayer with your Sunday School teacher. It wasn't long before the Day Care administrator noticed our dispute. After we explained the disagreement, she informed me that my friend was correct. She sat down with us and explained in detail what it meant to be saved. She told of Christ's death on the cross and of His glorious resurrection. She spoke of hell and the torment within. Suddenly, it clicked, and I understood. I knew what I needed to do. I knelt there with my friend and the administrator and asked the Lord to save me.

Since that day, there have been many spiritual battles. I've been tempted to quit. I've been tempted to turn back. I've been tempted to believe the lies of the devil. But through it all, the Lord has been with me. He has led me and protected me. Yes, through it all, God's been good!
