On May 6, 1962 at the Wrigley Baptist Church God changed my life forever. I was born again. That day I realized my need of a Savior and trusted Jesus Christ and His finished work on the cross.
My pastor at the time, Carlton Flowers, preached on the cross and how Jesus gave His life for us. I knew that some how I had to believe that day. My dad told me later that I had been asking him for weeks if he wanted me to get saved. He told me not to worry about it knowing that when the time was right I wouldn’t be asking him. That day came on May 6, 1962.
I recently had the chance of going back to Wrigley and seeing the church from the outside. I visited Mill Creek where I was baptized the following Sunday. I remember the tears that came to my eyes realizing what God did to me and for me that day.
Though my pastor has been in heaven for years now, I suppose, I have never forgotten him and how God used him to make such a difference in my life.
I want to thank God and praise Him for saving someone so unworthy like me. I was nothing when He saved me and all that I am today is due to His grace. He loves me though I have failed Him so many times.
Do you have a testimony of when you got saved? Do you know for sure that you would go to Heaven if you died today?
