A number of years ago, a friend of mine bought a book entitled, “The 100 Most Important Events In Christian History.”

In the course of a conversation, he asked me what I would consider fit into that category.   It didn’t take me very long to come to my conclusion, “My salvation”, I replied.

And maybe you are thinking, “ . . . but what about the Reformation, the Crusades, Wesley’s conversion and Billy Graham’s 1949 crusade in Los Angeles?”    Oh sure, they were important and maybe even earth shattering but in my opinion they pale in comparison to September 2nd 1979 when I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ.

I wasn’t terrible, hadn’t robbed a liquor store or killed anyone, but I was in need of God and had done nothing to deserve His favour and yet he reached down from heaven and forgave the sins of a young fisherman and made me a child of the King.

My conversion story may not get into my friend’s book, but it did get me into Gods book and that has to be one of the most important events in Christian History, at least that’s the way I see it.  And your salvation is every bit as important as mine, or Wesley’s or Augustine’s.    Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible
