Testimony – Polly Beth Reid
When I was 7 years old, I began to question what it really meant to become a Christian. I didn’t understand everything and talked to my parents about what being saved means and prayed with them about it. I knew I wanted to be saved, but I needed to understand more. We talked to Bro. Chris a few times, and I asked him some questions, but it never all made sense until this year at VBS. When we were given a card that asked if we wanted to know more, I knew I wanted to mark yes!
I met with Bro. John Ingle, and he and my mom explained about how Jesus died for me, so that I could have everlasting life. I have always heard the ABC’s of becoming a Christian, but it made sense when Bro. John talked about admitting, believing and confessing that Jesus Christ is Lord. He read several verses to me and explained what they meant. I know I have made mistakes and have sinned and that God sent His Son, Jesus, so I could be forgiven.
My mom told me after I prayed to become a Christian, that 9 years ago Bro. John and Mrs. Martha came to our house and prayed over me when I was only 1 week old. I am so thankful for all of my family and friends that have prayed for me, and I know that God has a great plan for my life. I want to share the love of Jesus with others and live my life for Him.
