Our pastor at church doesn’t many Sundays go by without telling people how to come into a relationship with Jesus Christ. Usually during the final prayer, he gives a short and simple prayer someone can say in their hearts to accept the free gift of salvation. Something like: Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I sincerely repent of my sins and ask you to be my Lord and Savior. Now as your child, I turn my entire life over to you.
This morning, he did an actual altar call. He asked anyone who wanted to make a commitment to Christ to come down front and pray with him. One man went. It takes great courage and conviction to stand up in front of everyone at that moment. And as his voice broke during the prayer, my tears started. There is nothing like the moment a person becomes a believer. I have witnessed it a few times recently and it never fails to move me to tears.
May God continues to turn hearts toward Him and keep our hearts soft enough to hear His voice.
