"By the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony..."
I was fortunate and blessed enough to be raised in a Christian home. My parents took me regularly to church on Sundays. I was very behaved as a young boy and vaguely remember at three-years-old sitting upright listening to Pastor Weisman. One summer day, when I was five, my parents asked me if I wanted to accept Jesus into my heart, I said yes. So we all knelt by the couch and I prayed the sinner's prayer believing and accepting Jesus into my heart.
Afterward, I didn't feel any different, but I kept learning more and more about Jesus while attending Sunday school and church Even as a youth I didn't get baptized because I didn't feel comfortable about it. I didn't really believe and understand that I was a Christian until I was at the age of seventeen. It took awhile to accept, but I'm thankful I now Jesus.
I finally became baptized at twenty nine years of age, but baptism isn't what saves you and is not a requirement for getting into Heaven, but is an obedient command and declaration of faith to God and others. Being a Christian isn't easy as I've had many ups and downs, but knowing Him is rewarding as Jesus, aka God, never fails and never changes.
