New Life in Christ
By Twila Leistner
This is my testimony of how I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.
The night that I accepted Jesus as my Lord was January 3, 2012. I was in my bed with my little sister, Arielle, because at the time we shared a bed. My sister had already fallen asleep, because she usually fell asleep first. I was thinking to myself as I was lying in bed. I felt like I should talk to my mom about something, so I went to the other room where she was and I talked with her about when you ask Jesus into your heart if it is supposed to mean something to you, we talked for awhile. It was a very emotional moment for me, I cried a lot. I had always asked Jesus in my heart, but I didn't really mean it. After awhile, though, I finally understood. With the help of my mom I prayed and asked Jesus Christ to come and live in my heart. I was so happy and I gave thanks to God! I had finally realized that I needed Christ as my Lord and Savior! I also realized that the Holy Spirit had been pulling me towards God. When I went back to my room I cried tears of joy! I was so thankful that God cares so much about me!
