  • July 11, 2014 - Reflections

    By Jean S. Horner
    The other day while walking down a corridor in a public building, I saw what appeared to be someone walking toward me. On coming closer, I found it was my own reflection in a huge mirror. For a moment it frightened me. Somehow a full-length reflection of one’s self is a startling thing. ...

November 1, 2011 - Saved!

By Kristen Feola

“Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved” (Romans 10:13, NIV).

I was 7 years old. It was a Sunday morning, and I stood at the back pew of Calvary Baptist Church in Butler, Missouri. As the preacher invited people to accept Jesus, I sensed a tugging at my heart. I knew God was speaking to me. Even though I wanted to go forward, I didn’t. Instead of walking to the front of the church, I went downstairs to the basement. My mother followed me.

She asked me what was wrong. I told her my stomach hurt, because it did. I was nervous and scared. I can’t recall exactly what my mom said, but her words calmed me down. We went back into the service, and I walked up the aisle to the pastor.

We knelt at the altar, and Brother Green shared Bible verses with me, such as Romans 10:9,10, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (KJV).

The truth of the gospel penetrated my soul. I knew I needed Jesus. So, I did it. I confessed my sin to God and asked Jesus to come into my life. On June 3, 1978, He saved me!

It has been 32 years, and I’m still overwhelmed by God’s great love. That He would send His Son to die for me is unimaginable! That He would choose me before the creation of the world to be His child is incomprehensible! As long as I live, I will never be able to grasp the full extent of His affection for me.

Have you met the Lord and been saved by His glorious grace? If so, then praise Him! Thank Him for what He has done, and share your story with others. If you’ve not yet accepted God’s gift of salvation, I urge you to open your heart to Him. He loves you more than you can understand. You don’t have to do anything but ask. The Lord is waiting for you to come to Him. Just believe and receive … and be saved.
