This year, December 15 is the 46th anniversary of my spiritual birthday. In 1964 I was 35 years old when my good friend and political compatriot, Shirley Spellerberg, tricked my wife and me into going to a Christmas Concert. I heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ loud and clear, how that Jesus Christ died on the cross for me (an imperfect atheist), Even secular history records that Jesus was buried and rose again — thus proving Himself to be God in the Flesh. That very night I trusted Christ as my Savior and passed from death to eternal life, from an atheist to a believer in the Savior of the world, The Son of God, Jesus Christ. That was accomplished by my simple decision to trust Jesus as my Savior. The simplicity of the Gospel was amazing to me (still is) and contrary to the lie I had heard about the “Christian religion” all my life, that “Good people go to heaven and bad people go to Hell.” The Bible says there are no people good enough to go to Heaven on their own. Further we can never make ourselves good enough. It happens ONLY through our faith in Jesus Christ.
I constantly thank the Lord for His Grace and Mercy, that He would die on that cross for such a wretch as me.
I thank the Lord that Pastor Ray Stanford made the Gospel and the invitation to trust Christ so clear at that Christmas Concert that even I could understand the Gospel and believe in (put my faith in) Jesus Christ.
Right now, you too can pass from death to life by trusting Christ as YOUR Savior. He died for the imperfections (sins) that would keep you from Heaven. The Bible says “The wages of sin is death..” but Jesus paid your debt and offers Heaven to you absolutely FREE — no strings attached — and it is God’s eternal contract with you..
For God so loved the world (you), that He gave his only begotten Son (Jesus), that whosoever believeth (you) in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Trust Jesus Now, make this your greatest and most blessed Christmas season ever.
