Forty-seven years young in the Lord!
On Resurrection Sunday in 1966, when only eight years old, I had a deep, deep conversion experience as I totally surrendered to the Lord.
It was in an old Pentecostal church that met in the pastor’s home.
I’m told that my tears of repentance on that worn wooden floor made permanent stains.
Wow, how time has passed.
It’s been – and continues to be – a wonderful adventure. Even during some tough times, I never once regretted belonging to Christ – my King and my Redeemer.
Through it all, I’ve always felt His hand on my life. He blessed me with a solid foundation from Godly parents and mature teachers, which has served me well over the years.
In an age of cheap grace, crazy doctrines and postmodern spiritual angst, that foundation yet stands firm.
For those willing to surrender their sensibilities to the Living Word, in submission to His written Word, He offers the same assurance.
Really, it’s just not that complicated.
But it does mean letting go of your own foolishness and impulse to define Jesus – and what ultimately is right, real and true – on your own terms.
My life is a living testimony to His sovereign Lordship, and His passion is my very life.
I invite you to also surrender, and find life.
