A Word of Encouragement from Tiff Shuttlesworth:

Your decision to make Jesus Christ Lord of your life is the most important decision you will ever make in your life! The Bible says; “But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God.” (John 1:12) Today the curse of sin in your life is broken and the blessing of God is now yours. You are no longer the property of sin, today you are a child of God and you are forgiven!

It is not unusual to have questions or even to have doubts. You may wonder if your life is really changed after praying the sinner’s prayer with me. Everybody has different feelings when they turn from sin and turn to Christ. Some feel very emotional, some feel great joy in knowing their sins are forgiven, some feel sorrowful and cry because of the sinful things they know they have done, and others feel little other than a sense of peace. Just remember this, feelings do not change facts! So regardless of how you feel, here are some very important facts!

Fact 1.) The Bible is God’s word. “All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.” (II Timothy 3:16)

Fact 2.) When you called upon the name of the Lord in prayer, God’s word says that you have been saved.“But everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (Acts 2:21)

Fact 3.) Today you belong to Jesus Christ and you have a brand new life! “This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!” (II Corinthians 5:17)

Fact 4.) Today is not the end but just the beginning of your new life in Christ! “And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.” (Philippians 1:6)
