Yesterday we had the privilege of playing at another retirement home! The title of this post came from a lady who said that she was eternally grateful that we came to their home. She had been thoroughly blessed and encouraged by the music!
The most exciting part of the whole afternoon was when one of the ladies became born again! She was talking to Mary and mentioned how she liked Mary’s smile. Mary said that her smile was because of Jesus, and then Mary asked her if she knew Jesus as her Lord and Saviour. The woman told Mary that she had her religion, and that she prayed every day. Mary then talked with her more about spiritual things and next the woman asked, “So how do I ask Jesus to come into my heart?”
Mary then called Dad to come over and explain because she thought he could do a better job of sharing the plan of salvation. He showed the lady how we are all sinners and that we have all broken God’sÂ commandments.
â€œFor all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;â€
She admitted that she had sinned and that she was worthy of hell. Then Dad went on to share the Good News of how Jesus died on the cross for our sins – to pay our penalty. We just have to repent of our sins, and place our faith in Him, and we will spend our eternity in Heaven.
â€œLikewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.â€ (Luke 15:10)
In Christ Jesus,
