“And now, the rest of the story.” Those are the words made famous by Paul Harvey. Today I want to borrow that phrase to continue my thoughts from yesterday. As Jason related the circumstances regarding his salvation, he explained that it happened while he and his buddy were driving home from the army base in Savannah, GA. His buddy was an atheist, and from a family that hated the very mention of God. After describing his experience, Jason then added these words, “Also, that person driving the car—was saved today.” In other words, this young man was saved about six months after Jason received Christ—six months of observing the change that took place in Jason’s life.
Here’s my point–a changed life and a clear testimony of salvation preaches a powerful sermon to others. When we practice what we profess it gets people’s attention. It gives us an opportunity to tell them about God’s saving grace.
Whether you are an unsaved church member or an avowed atheist, you must trust Christ as your Savior if you hope to go to heaven. One is no better than the other–both will spend eternity in hell unless they are saved. Thankfully, for Jason and his buddy all ended well. But, what about you? Have you truly trusted Christ as your Lord and Savior? Think about it!
