Hi! I’m Val Black, 73 years young April 19 (2010). I became “Born-Again” about 30 years ago. In case you don’t know what I mean by “Born-Again”, it means that at the age of 43 I came to realize the life that I was living was far short of what God expected of me. In fact, although God loved me, I learned I couldn’t go to Heaven by trying to work my way, i.e., going to church, good works, paying tithes, etc. But then I also learned what the Bible says, “that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9)

So that’s what I did. One day as I was listening to the 700 Club on TV I knelt in our living room and prayed, asking forgiveness of my sins. I won’t go into the details of what happened after that, but life has never been the same since. I know I’m going to Heaven because God’s own word, the Bible, backs it up and God cannot tell a lie.

How about you? Are you certain of going to Heaven? If yes, what backs up your belief? Does the word of God give you that assurance? Or are you relying on church traditions? Good works? Being a good person? Or are you just hoping for the best?

Anything other than by faith in Jesus is a mistake. So don’t make that mistake. Ask Jesus to forgive your sins and then to guide you in life by His Holy Spirit. If, and when you do, give me a “holler” and let me know. We’ll celebrate together!

God bless.
