Recently my Grandma passed away at the rich age of 95, go Grammie! The funeral was a beautiful service in which the pastor and the people knew, without a shadow of a doubt, that my Grammie was in Heaven rejoicing with Jesus! The reason we were all assured that she was in Heaven was because the way she lived her life.
Growing up she always spoke about Jesus and how we have to accept Him into our hearts. When I was a little girl I had no idea WHO Jesus really was and the significance of what He had done for us on the cross. I was also not raised in church so I did not have an understanding of religion anyway. My Grandma took my sisters and I to church on occasions when we stayed at her house for the weekend and attended Sunday School. She would sit in her rocking chair every morning while we were still asleep and softly pray - I always thought she was talking to herself, but now I realize what she was doing. :)
Our lives need to be a testament to others. If we do not accept Christ into our hearts and have Him as our Lord and Savior of our lives, we are saying that we do not want to go to Heaven. In Matthew 10:33, "But whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven." If we do not accept Christ into our hearts and live a life that glorifies God, we are denying Him. If we deny Him, He will deny us on judgement day in front of God. It is not enough to just believe in God: we must accept Christ as our Savior, believe that Jesus died on the cross for our sins, make Him Lord of our lives and walk in obedience to His commandments. He calls us to be "fishers of men", to lead others to Him. That is where your testament of life comes in at; you must walk the walk and talk the talk. It is one thing to SAY you live for Him, but it's a whole other thing to SHOW you live for Him.
I challenge you today, if you claim to be a child of God, to live your life as a testament to others and SHOW that you live for Him. You don't even have to say anything, your actions speak for you. If you have not accepted Jesus into your heart and need to know how to do that, talk to a local pastor or spiritual mentor to get that worked out; we all must work out our own salvation. You can always contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me anytime 423.650.1388 and I would love to tell you my testimony and how I came to know Christ. We all must turn to Christ and follow Him now, you never know when it is going to be too late. We all may not live to be 95 like my Grammie did, we don't know when our time is up. Don't wait, get your salvation worked out today.
