Rose's One-Minute Witness:
"There was a time in my life when I was lonely and questioned what life was all about, I wanted to feel secure. Then a man told me that I needed Jesus in my life to help me not only with the challenges I had but that I could have confidence to know when I died I would go to heaven. When I realized Jesus died for my sins, I prayed to God that He would forgive me of my sin and help me to live the life that would be pleasing to Him.
"After I prayed I had a peace and assurance that God was helping me in situations that I had no control over. I didn’t have fear because I knew that He was watching over and guiding me. God has protected me from things that could have harmed me. I learned that reading the Bible and asking the Holy Spirit to help me was very beneficial for me.
"If I had never found Jesus and asked Him into my heart I know that things would have been very troublesome for me. I was on a path that would not have a good outcome and I probably wouldn’t be alive today.
"So what about you? Do you want peace and assurance that if you died today you would go to heaven? If your answer is yes, pray this simple prayer sincerely:
"Dear Jesus, I admit I am a sinner. I believe You died on the cross for my sin and rose again. I commit my life to You and want to serve You the rest of my life. Then read your Bible and pray everyday. Go to a Bible believing church and honor God with your life."
