The Testimony of Sarah Brown

sarah The fol­low­ing is the tes­ti­mo­ny of my dear friend Sarah Brown, which she has shared with me so that I might share it with all of you.

On Fri­day night (well, Sat­ur­day morn­ing, August 18, 2001) between 12:00A.M. and 12:30 A.M. I got saved! For 12 years I thought I was saved, though. Then for a lit­tle over a year I had doubts about my sal­va­tion. I did­n’t think too much about it because I was in denial. I went to Rebec­ca­’s house on August 16 and spent the week­end with her. Some­thing was said that night of the 16th that made me doubt my sal­va­tion. I could­n’t help but think, “Am I real­ly saved?” I just ignored it because I thought that I had got­ten saved when I was five. Fri­day night they (the Moore Fam­i­ly) had some oth­er peo­ple over. We had a bon­fire and roast­ed hot dogs and stuff. Jonathan, after every­one was fin­ished eat­ing, preached a short mes­sage for us. Dur­ing that mes­sage I felt con­vic­tion, and God pulling on my heart. I did­n’t know what was going on at first, so after Jonathan was fin­ished preach­ing Rebec­ca and I talked about it. She had asked me if I was 100% sure that if I were to die that I would go to heav­en. For the first time in my life I did­n’t know. That scared me! We talked about it for a while, then I real­ized that I was­n’t saved. At that time we both start­ed to pray silent­ly to ourselves.

I asked Jesus to come into my heart and save me. Right after I said, “Save me,” it was like God answered me back and said, “You are”. What JOY and PEACE!

Even though I had just got­ten saved, the Dev­il was already fight­ing me. He was telling me that I had got­ten saved when I was five. The truth was I did­n’t get saved then. I knew that and so I let the mean ol’ Dev­il know it too!

After I told every­one at Bec­ca­’s house that I had just got­ten saved, I could­n’t wait to tell the world! Some­thing that few oth­er peo­ple know is that night when I was all alone I cried and prayed and I cried because I was so hap­py! It scared me to think that my whole life up to that point I was lost. At any time I could have died and gone to hell. I prayed because I want­ed to thank the Lord for my sal­va­tion and for His Son, Jesus Christ.

Now that you’ve heard my tes­ti­mo­ny I have just one ques­tion for you. Are you 100% sure that if you were to die today that you would go to heav­en???? If you’re not then all you have to do is repent of your sins to Jesus and ask Him to come into your heart and save you and for­give you of all your sins.

If we con­fess our sins, he is faith­ful and just to for­give us our sins, and to cleanse us rom all unrighteousness.
