8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; 9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
I want to tell you about how I came to know the Lord. During my lifetime, up until 1980, I was always inquisitive. My constant questioning didn’t gain me much acceptance among adults. They seemed to have thought me to be impudent. But I’d ask questions, because I wanted to know.
There were three significant events that lead me to accept Jesus as My Lord. Once when I was very little, I would watch a move called King of Kings on television at Easter time , and never understood why Jesus was beat so badly. Another was a friend I had in middle school. Although she was my friend, she was very confident (during puberty) in who she was and knew what she wanted. Then, finally, I just wanted to know more about God. I wanted to know Who is He and why am I here. What I found was more that I ever dreamed God could be.
