Today, Tuesday, October 2, 2012 is my 11th Re-Birthday.
It was on a Tuesday, eleven years ago, at about 12:30 a.m on October 2, 2001, that I came into a right relationship with God. I called out to God, seeking forgiveness for my sin and repented, turning away from my rebellion toward God. I gave my self and my life to God and made the committment to follow and serve Jesus for the rest of my life.
For the first time in many many years I wept. I wept for two and a half hours. I literally felt the Holy Spirit enter my body where He took up residence. My spirit was quickened. When I awakened in the morning, I experienced peace. The kind of peace that passeth all understanding. I awakened with a great hunger for the Word of God. This hunger for the Word and its truth remains with me today.
It was so awesome to go through the experience of how God calls us to Him; how the Holy Spirit woos us to Jesus; and how the Holy Spirit enables a person to see his or her need for Jesus and enables a person to respond to God's calling by reaching out and receiving Jesus as Lord and Savior. I am so grateful, so thankful that I said yes!
I am forever grateful for the grace and mercy of God; for the perfect blood sacrifice Jesus Christ willingly made for the forgiveness of sin at the Cross; and for the awesome work of the Holy Spirit who continues changing me from the inside out as I become more and more like Jesus.
Most assuredly, the day I was born again in Jesus Christ WAS and IS the most important day of my life.
Join me in telling God how much you love Him. I love you God, with all my heart, with all my soul, with all my mind and with all my strength.
I cannot imagine trying to live life without having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
