I was in the 6th grade and i gave my life over to Jesus. It was a scary time because i was afraid to tell my parents that I am now a Christian. Actually, it wasn’t until college when I was finally able to tell them about my faith in Christ. I cannot tell you the exact time and day that i was saved. I can tell you what was the first verse that i ever memorized. Back then (and today) this was a verse that spoke to me. It was everything that i was looking for all nicely wrapped up in just a few words. It was a reminded that with Jesus ANYTHING is possible. It spoke to the inner child in me. A child seeking something from his father. Recently, my daughter asked me what was my favorite bible verse. With that question, Matthew 7:7 and how it held my faith together at such a young age was brought back into the family.
What’s your favorite bible verse?
