A Defining Encounter

Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.  (Romans 10:9)
He saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit. (Titus 3:5)

For every follower of Jesus, there has been a specific, defining moment when they decided to hand their life over to the Lord. There is no way you can be a Christian for your entire life; if that were true, that moment wouldn’t exist. You can’t become a Christian if you don’t have that type of encounter.

Do you remember the day when you were headed in one direction, had an encounter with Christ, and turned in the opposite direction? You gave control of your life to Him, turned from your sin, and placed all of your faith in Him. You must have a life-changing encounter if you want to become a Christian. At that moment, you will join Him in His battle against the enemy.

Romans 10:13 says, For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” God has made the most important decision in your life very easy. All He wants you to do is call out to Him and invite Christ to be the Lord of your life. I pray that if you haven’t already made this decision, that today would be the day you turn from your sin and place your faith in Him. It will be the best decision you will ever make!

I gave my life to Jesus in March of 1994 and I have been on a whirlwind ride ever since. It has been fantastic!
