I was not raised going to church. As a young man both of my grandfathers died within four years of each other. Their funerals were held at churches. The speakers talked about heaven and eternal life. I became afraid of the thought of dying. What would happen to me if I died? Would I go to heaven? How do you know? Then one day another young man told me how I could have forgiveness of my sin and receive the gift of eternal life and know I would go to heaven when I died. He explained to me that Jesus Christ had died on the cross to pay the penalty for my sin and that he was raised from the dead on the third day to offer me and the whole world the gift of eternal life. He also explained that although Jesus had died for the sin of all mankind, it would only be those who intentionally put their faith in Him who would receive his forgiveness and the gift of eternal life. I thought about this and decided to ask Jesus to forgive my sin and I received the gift of eternal life. Wow! What a difference this has made in my life. I am no longer afraid to die. I know when I die I will go to Heaven and spend all eternity with Jesus. Having eternal life helps me be a better husband and father too. I still have problems and challenges in life, but knowing that Jesus is with me all the time gives me the strength and confidence to live an exciting, fulfilled life every day. Thank you Lord that I have received your gift of eternal life in Jesus Christ.
