Janice’s Faith Story

     Head Knowledge about Jesus Christ and a concept of how a Christian should act only gets you so far.  It certainly does NOT get you into heaven!

John 14:6  – Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through him.

As an adult, while studying my Sunday School lesson at my kitchen table, I prayed to receive Jesus Christ as my personal Savior. I realized that my salvation experience as a 9 year old child was based on my desire to be like all of my friends being baptized.  I didn’t want to be “left out!”

Growing up, I was very active in church activities, scripture memorization, Bible Drill, missions education, etc.  I was acting like I thought every Christian should – a law follower.  What a blow to my ego!

What was the difference?  Beyond the mouth confession and heart belief, it was receiving the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth, as my Guide and Counselor.  Yes, there was a difference!  Walking by Faith and Living by the Spirit; I know for sure now. There is no doubt. Jesus lives in my heart!

Only those who have the Spirit of Christ please God and belong to Him.

Romans 8:12-17 “So then, brothers and sisters, we are not obligated to the flesh … because if you live according to the flesh, you are going to die. But if by the Spirit … you will live. For all those led by God’s Spirit are God’s   children. For you did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear.     Instead you received the Spirit of adoption, by whom we cry out, “Abba,    Father!” The Spirit himself testifies together with our spirit that we are God’s children, and if children, also heirs – heirs of God and coheirs with Christ…”

I know that I know that I am a child of the King, and He has a place for me in His Heavenly Kingdom!  Discovering my purpose to glorify Him,  I currently serve in my home church, Second Baptist Church, Arkadelphia, encouraging and leading senior adults in Bible Study on Sunday mornings.

Blessed Assurance – Jesus is Mine!  Do you need that assurance? Let’s talk!
