Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, and you’re listening to Share Life Today.
What kind of traditions do you have? Maybe you always make egg salad for family reunions, or play football on Thanksgiving. Maybe you grew up going to church every Sunday like Lara. In fact it wasn’t only Sunday morning church, it was Sunday evening, Wednesday night, really, anytime the doors were open. As a result, she grew up knowing about Jesus and was your traditional good, ‘Christian kid.’ If you asked her about her faith, she would tell you that her mother told her that she led Lara in a prayer of salvation at only five years old. But one day, Lara realized that wasn’t going to be good enough. At church one night, her youth pastor explained that salvation is a personal decision. He said that your parents won’t stand with you before God. It will only be you and God. Right then, she made the decision to put her faith in Christ, not her mother’s words! Don’t rely on Christian tradition to take you to Heaven, trust Jesus alone. Visit Share Life Dot Today.
