You Know It Now!

by LaVonne Wood  
7/12/2013 / Salvation

"Hello God!"

"Hello Charlie! What's on your mind today?"

"Well I was reading in your Word today and I'd like to ask You a question. According to Ephesians 2: 8, 9, salvation is a gift and has nothing to do with the good works I have done. Well, you know I've gone to church all these years trying to be as moral a person as I could, so I could get to heaven. I became involved in church activities, gave in the offerings, feed the poor, and even helped some needy widows. However, according to this verse, my being good and doing nice things has nothing to do with my salvation. Is that right God?"

"That's right, Charlie".

"I didn't know that!"

And God said, "You know it now!"

"OK, God, I have another question. In Romans 10:17 it says faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. Well, I've been listening to our pastor preach from scripture for years, yet I never read the Bible much myself or understood all the contents thereof. I'm thinking if I read this book myself and ask You to reveal what's being said, then maybe I can really understand what salvation means, and receive the faith to believe. Is that right, God?"

"That's right, Charlie".

"I didn't know that!"

And God said, "You know it now!"

"Let me ask you this one last question, God. In John 3:16 it says whoever believes in You shall have eternal life. I've heard that verse so many times and I've always thought I believed in You. Yet the other day I heard a preacher say that even the Devil believes in You. So, I figured there must be more to this verse than I understood. Believing You exist and believing all that You say in Your Word as truth, is two different things. I asked myself if I really believed Jesus died on the cross to save me from my sins. Did I believe He turned the water into wine and that he healed the blind man? Did I really believe He feed the five thousand with five loaves of bread and a couple fish? I wondered if my faith would allow me to believe the apostles were empowered by your Holy Spirit to perform many miracles.

"Then I asked myself if I did believe in all those things You did for others, would I believe you would do the same for me. You would do the same for me, wouldn't you God?"

"Yes I would!"

"I didn't know that".

"God, I've prayed a lot of prayers in my day, like the Lord's Prayer, you know, but never have I sat down and just talked to You like I am today. I can just feel Your presence here with me and know that You love me very much. I have a desire to get to know You more and have a lot more conversations just like this one. So, I've decided to believe what You say in Your Word is true, to ask You into my life, and receive this salvation personally. You know that God?"

And God said, "I know it now!"

If you will listen you will hear a hum in the heavens as the angels sing praises to God for the salvation of another soul!
