Impact: Salvation (Day 2)


There had been a stirring in my heart. I simply knew that things were not right. There was only one solution: Jesus.
Now I had grown up in church, almost literally. I grew up as a preacher’s kid in South central Nebraska. I had heard about Jesus for my entire life, but at a young age, I felt it was time to commit my life to him. Thankfully, my parents told me to wait, so I waited. I waited for a few more years, but the stirring in my heart was back, and stronger than before. So after many conversations with my parents and some studying through the book of Acts, I took that step forward. And what a cold step it was! On a Tuesday night in September, while a visiting preacher was leading a revival at my home church, I was baptized in some chilly waters and started my journey and commitment to Christ. (We didn’t have a heater in the baptistry, which makes me appreciate the heated water every time I step into the baptistry at TCC!) September 20th will forever be a special day to me, because it is the anniversary of the night I took that step forward and gave my life to Jesus, my spiritual birthday. I was relieved from that day on and knew that things had been made right between me and God, through Christ.
I still rest in this awesome truth, Jesus has saved me. It’s still as true today as it was that day. There is not any act that I can do that can save me, except for giving my life to Christ and committing to follow Him. I’ve made at least a few good decisions in my life, but nothing can ever top giving my life to Jesus and the life I’ve found in Him
Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved -Acts 4:12
