9495 Days Ago
It was the evening of August 29, 1993 -- 9495 days ago. I was 16 years old and standing on a dock at the entrance to the magnificent Princess Louisa Inlet in British Columbia, Canada with a few of my closest friends who had come to Young Life's Malibu Club with me. It was on this night 26 years ago that I surrendered my heart to Jesus Christ.
The cross before me, the world behind me. No turning back. No turning back.
". . . for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" - Romans 3:23 (ESV)
". . . if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved". - Romans 10:9–10 (ESV)
"For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast." - Ephesians 2:8–9 (ESV)
