The Gospel In Me: March 12, 2017
Before every baptism we have the privilege to hear stories of how God has saved people in our church and community through the gospel. In order to encourage one another, we will be posting these “gospel stories” after each baptism!
Emma Grace Morton (9 years old)
When I was little I didn’t know much about Jesus, but I only kinda knew he was real, and I am going to tell you how I became a part of God’s family. First, when I went to church more that is when I got better at knowing God more. So when I was 6, I knew that he died on the cross for my sins, and I know that he did not do it because he was bad; it was because Jesus wanted us to be forgiven by God, and Jesus rose again 3 days later! He was alive!
Then as I got older I knew even more; I started to sing, and whenever I would sing I loved him so much that I would cry! Next, when I was 8 I knew even more. I kept reading the Bible and praying for the people who have problems and who are sick. I also started worshiping God more. I love worshiping my God! Finally, I am 9 and I still don’t know everything, but all I need to know is that he is my Savior and he died for me; I love him!
That is why I am now in his family. I was with my family one day, and I sat down with my mom and dad and on my knees I prayer to God and asked him in my heart. That is how I became a Christian.
