How easy it is to become a Christian!
Occasionally someone will say, “Brother Hyles, you make it so easy to be
I always answer, “I did not make it easy;
God made it easy. I simply tell you how God made it.” I made this
comment in a home recently: If my girl Becky, who is ten, ran away from
home, I would want her back. It would be the easiest thing in this world
for her to get back. All she would have to do is come and say, “Daddy, I
want to come home,” and she would be as good as at home. I would want
her to come home as much or more than she would want to return, so I
would make it very easy for her to come back home.
If one of your children got lost, you would
make it easy for him to come back. You would search everywhere. You
would be the aggressor. You would be more anxious, or at least as
anxious, for him to come home as he would be to return home.
Our Heavenly Father is the same way.
Salvation, my friends, is not hard. It is simple. Salvation is not
running an obstacle course and hoping you will end up standing up
someday when the judgment comes. God has made salvation so simple that
the smallest child who understands right from wrong can accept it and be
saved. God has made salvation so easy that anybody who knows he is a
sinner and knows that by faith he can receive Christ as Saviour, can be
God´s Part in Salvation Is Big, Tremendous
Now, to be sure, salvation is big. We
stumble over its bigness in an effort to make it complicated. But bear
this in mind: All the bigness of salvation is on God´s part, not ours.
All the immensity and all the working and all the business and all the
complexity and all the theology and all the deep doctrine and all the
philosophy of being saved is God´s part. Our part is simple.
Now, to be sure, salvation is big. Man
sinned in the Garden of Eden. God made a man; He made a woman. He put
them in the Garden of Eden and said, “Of every tree of the garden thou
mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil,
thou shalt not eat of it.”
But man ate that forbidden fruit when Satan
tempted and tested and deceived Eve. Eve came back and told Adam she had
eaten of the fruit, that it was a tree that would make men wise, good to
look upon, and it opened her eyes concerning good and evil. Man had
sinned. Man was made in the image of God for fellowship with God. When
man departed from God, then God made a plan to save man. Now the making
of that plan was complex. The making of that plan was eternity-shaking.
The making of that plan was big and magnificent. But the receiving of
that plan is just as simple as taking a drink of water.
God immediately said, “I am going to make a
plan.” When Adam and Eve sinned, and sin came into the human race, and
man departed from God, immediately God started to make a plan. Jesus
Christ, the Son of God, said, “Father, I will go to earth and become
man. I am willing to become flesh. I will live a sinless life, a perfect
life. I will go to Calvary. I will dip My own soul into Hell itself. I
will become sin for man. If man will simply receive Me, he can be
saved.” Immediately God promised that the seed of woman would bruise the
head of the serpent. And the seed of woman would, of course, someday
come. Four thousand years later in Bethlehem´s manger came the Lord
Satan, then, set out to block the coming of
the Saviour. He set out to block salvation´s plan. Immediately Adam and
Eve had a boy they named Cain. They had another boy named Abel. there
was the seed of the promised Messiah. But Cain killed Abel, and the
seed-carrier was broken. God gave another son whose name was Seth. From
the time Seth was born until Jesus Christ came in Bethlehem, Satan did
everything he could to block the coming of the Saviour.
When Jesus´ coming was finally announced,
Satan tried to get Joseph to put Mary away, to stone her so the Messiah
would not be born, Finally, when the Messiah came, there was no place
for Him to be born, for Satan blocked any hospital, or hotel, or inn
from the Saviour. So the Saviour was born in a manger in Bethlehem.
Then immediately Satan tried to block
salvation´s plan in the leading of Herod to kill all the male children
two years old and under. You recall how the angel came to Joseph in a
dream and said, “Flee to Egypt.” Once again God had blocked Satan´s plan
to thwart salvation.
Satan was not finished. He took Jesus one
day up to a mountain and tempted Him in the wilderness three times,
hoping that somehow sin could enter in the life of Jesus Christ. For if
Jesus Christ had been a sinner, He would have had to suffer for His own
sin and could not suffer for my sin. But Jesus said, “Get thee behind
me, Satan,” and He took the sword of the Spirit and three times struck
the Word of God into Satan. Jesus did not yield to temptation.
But he wasn´t through. You recall when
Jesus was on the cross, they came by, looked up at Him, hissed at Him,
and said, “If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross.” Satan
well knew if Jesus Christ would come down from Calvary, salvation´s plan
would be thwarted. But Jesus did not come down.
Satan wasn´t finished then. Jesus was put
in a borrowed sepulcher. Joseph of Arimathaea and Nicodemus came and got
His body and placed it in a borrowed tomb outside the city of Jerusalem.
The Bible says that the Roman government put guards around the tomb to
guard the Saviour from coming forth. But, thank God once again, on that
Easter Sunday morning Jesus came forth victoriously, and the Gospel is
not finished. For Christ, our perfect Lamb, has been sacrificed, has
been buried, rose again the third day, and we do have a Gospel.
It is complicated, to be sure. When a
person is saved, he is redeemed. His sins are forgiven. His past is
forgotten. He is made an heir of God, and a joint-heir with Jesus
Christ. He is become sanctified in the beloved. As far as God´s wrath is
concerned, he is justified. He is saved from Hell, and for eternity he
will live with God in heaven to enjoy the bliss of God´s prepared city
forever and forever.
Complicated, isn´t it? Big, isn´t it?
Immense, isn´t it? Immaculate, isn´t it? Wonderful, isn´t it? Hard to
comprehend, isn´t it? Yes, it is. But I say once again, that every part
of the complicated Gospel is God´s part, not man´s part. God has
prepared a big meal, which is salvation. Jesus Christ was the Bread of
Life. He is the Living Water. he is the Meat of the Word. He is the Milk
of the Word. Jesus Christ is the great meal. Salvation has been
prepared, and now God tells us, “Come, for all things are now ready.”
Man Has Tried to Complicate Getting Saved
It is so easy to be saved. Oh, complicated
for God--yet so simple for man. I want to show you about the simplicity
of being saved. man has tried to complicate it. God said, “Come.” Isn´t
that all God said to Adam and Eve? “Come.” Isn´t that all God said in
Revelation 22:17? “And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him
that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. and whosoever
will, let him take the water of life freely.”
A man made a great supper in Luke 14 (a
picture of salvation), and sent his servants at suppertime to say,
“Come; for all things are now ready.” I want to make one thing clear at
the start: You cannot do anything to get saved except come to the Lord
Jesus Christ. Oh, how Satan has tried to complicate it. Satan has tried
to make more to salvation than that. People have tried to ass their own
work to salvation. We want some candles in the church. We want some soft
music in the background. We want to learn some confessions of faith and
take a catechism. We want to do something ourselves to be saved. We want
to feel something shoot in our spine and toes. We want to roll down the
aisle and shout, “Whoopee! Hallelujah! I hear angels´ wings flapping.”
Now you may get saved by candlelight, but
you won´t get saved by the candles.
You may get saved with soft music playing,
but the soft music won´t have a single thing to do with your getting
You may get saved in the baptistry, but the
baptistry won´t have a single thing to do with your getting saved.
You may get saved in the baptistry, but the
baptistry won´t have a thing to do with your getting saved.
You may get saved the moment you join the
church, but the joining of the church won´t have a single thing to do
with your getting saved.
When you get saved, you may cry, but crying
won´t have a single thing to do with your getting saved.
When you get saved, you may cry, but crying
won´t have a single thing to do with your getting saved.
When you get saved, you may say, “Whoopee!”
But “whoopee” won´t have anything to do with your getting saved.
The way to get saved is to come to Jesus
and trust Him by faith. It is the simple plan that God has made.
Now there are three things that tell us of
I. BIBLE EXAMPLES OF CONVERSIONS SHOW
OUTWARD CONDITIONS AND EMOTIONS WITH DIFFERENT PEOPLE
“Oh,” you say, “the Apostle Paul.” We like
to take the Apostle Paul´s conversion and make a big to-do about that. A
light shone round about him, and Paul was thrown to his face on the
Damascus road, and was blinded. All of a sudden Paul said, “Who art
thou, Lord? What wilt thou have me to do?”
We say, “Then we ought to have a light
shine around about us.” No, the light shining around Paul didn´t save
Paul. Paul´s falling on his face didn´t save him. The blinding of Paul
didn´t save him. Paul was saved when he received Christ as Saviour. It
is not the circumstances that saved; it is the will saying, “I will come
to Christ,” which makes one a Christian.
Now quit waiting for feeling. You may not
hoot and holler when you get saved. I don´t know what you will do or
what the results of you salvation emotionally will be, but I know this:
The resulting feelings have nothing to d with salvation. Salvation is
when a person realizes he is a sinner and Christ is the Saviour and by
faith he turns to Christ for salvation. That is what being saved is.
Matthew was sitting one day at the seat of
customs when Jesus came in the room. Matthew just left all and followed
Jesus. No light for Matthew. No falling on his face for Matthew. Now if
Matthew had fallen on his face and cried and shouted and said, “O boy!
hallelujah! I´m born again!” and hugged his neighbors and his wife and
rejoiced and rolled in the aisle, he would still have been saved, not
because he did those things, but because he had put his faith in Christ.
The Bible tells us that one day Zacchaeus
was up a tree. Jesus was coming through the city of Jericho on His way
to Jerusalem. Zacchaeus wanted to see Him, but there was a great parade
coming through, and since Zacchaeus was a little short fellow and could
not see Jesus coming, he climbed a tree and looked down. There came
Jesus. Jesus said, “Zacchaeus, make haste and come down; for to day I
must abide at thy house. I´m going to your house for lunch today.” Jesus
went home with Zacchaeus and over the supper table or dinner table,
Zacchaeus trusted Him. Zacchaeus was saved.
The thief on the cross simply said, “Lord,
remember me when thou comest into they kingdom.” Jesus said, “To day
shalt thou be with me in paradise.”
The publican in Luke 18 beat on his breast
and said, “God be merciful to me a sinner.” Jesus said, “This man went
down to his house justified.”
The eunuch in Acts, chapter 8, said, “See,
here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?” Philip said, “If
thou believest with all thine heart [that Jesus is the Son of God], thou
mayest.” The eunuch said, “I believe.” He simply trusted Jesus for
salvation, and the Bible says that they got out of the chariot and “they
went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he
baptized him...and he went on his way rejoicing.” Now the eunuch got
saved by trusting Christ.
Zacchaeus got saved by trusting Christ.
Matthew got saved by trusting Christ. john got saved by trusting Christ.
Peter got saved by trusting Christ. There may have been different
circumstances. There may have been different environments. There may
have been different stimuli. There may have been different atmospheres.
But salvation is wrapped up in one thing, and that is, “Come, for all
things are now ready.” Just come to Christ--that´s salvation.
II. NEW TESTAMENT FIGURES OF SPEECH SHOW
THE SIMPLICITY OF SALVATION
Now the next thing I want you to notice is
this: Not only Bible examples of the simplicity of salvation, but New
Testament comparison. All the way through the Bible we have figures of
speech. The New Testament figures of speech show the simplicity of being
saved. Oh, a lot of you would be saved, but you want a light to strike
you in the spine. You want a hypodermic needle to hit you. you want to
wiggle and roll down the aisle and feel something coming out of your
ears and have springs coming out of your head. you want to have
something God doesn´t say anything about.
Now when you get saved, you may have
springs coming out of your ears, but you´re not saved because you have
springs coming out of your ears. You may shout when you get saved, but
that won´t save you. Salvation is by faith in Christ.
Now listen to me: Anybody who knows he is a
sinner and knows that he is condemned before God to die and knows that
Jesus Christ on the cross suffered for sinner, and will simply come to
God and say, “Dear Lord, forgive my sins and save my soul today,” can be
Now you may shout, but the shouting won´t
save you. For example, on Sunday we have many different types of
conversions in people who come down the aisles. One person may come down
the aisle saying, “Oh, I want to be saved,” crying all the time. Last
Sunday night we almost had to mop the altar when a lady got through.
here comes another fellow who says, “I want to be saved,” smiling real
big. Here comes someone else who says, “I want to be saved,” with
remorse. Here comes another one who says, “I want to be saved,” very
Now is it the smile? No. The tears? No. The
stimuli? No. Remorse? No. The thing is, they want to be saved. That is
it. it is not how they act; it is what they do. If by faith you say
“yes” to Christ, that settles that.
Now let´s notice comparisons.
1. The New Testament Compares Salvation to
Letting Someone in the Door
In Revelation 3:20 Jesus said, “Behold, I
stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the
door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.”
There are two young people here whom I talked to yesterday about Christ
and they both were saved. I explained to them, as I have done so often,
that salvation is a matter of Jesus knocking at the heart and you
opening the door and letting Jesus come in. it is very simple to open
the door. If a friend came to see me and rang the bell or knocked on the
door, would I come and say, “Whoopee! come in”? I wouldn´t put it that
way at all. Now it is a very simple thing--”Would you come in, please.”
He comes in.
Jesus said that salvation is like that. He
is out of your life. He is not your Saviour. You have lived without Him.
You have never trusted Him. Now you simply say, “Dear Jesus, come in.”
God says that is salvation.
2. Getting Saved Is Like Taking a Drink of
In John, chapter 4, Jesus said, “Whosoever
drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst.”
Revelation 22:17: “And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him
that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever
will, let him take the water of life freely.” Now it is very simple to
take a drink of water. Some people get so thirsty that when they take a
drink of water they go “Whoo-OO.” Some people say, “Ahh-hh-h.” Some just
swallow it, and that is it. Now who gets the most water? Why, how it
makes you feel doesn´t have a thing to do with it. Jesus said getting
saved is like taking a drink of water. Are you thirst? Do you know you
are lost? Do you need Christ? He´s the one who is the water. You take a
drink and He comes in. That´s what salvation is like, He says.
3. Getting Saved Is Receiving a Gift
Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin is
death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our
Lord.” Ephesians 2:8, 9, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and
that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any
man should boast.” I give a person a gift. He takes it. Is it his?
Absolutely. What if he doesn´t feel good? It is still his. What if he
doesn´t shout? It is still his. What if he doesn´t cry? It is still his.
It is very simple to accept a gift. All you do is reach out and take it
and believe it is yours.
Now salvation is that way, the Bible says.
Jesus is God´s “unspeakable gift.” Eternal life is God´s gift to man.
Anybody who will say, “I am willing to receive the gift, “ can very
simply receive the gift from God.
4. Getting Saved Is Going Through a Door
John 10:9, “I am the door.” John 14:6, “I
am the way, the truth, and the life.” Now is it very complicated to go
through a door? When I leave the service I most always go through this
door. I´ll walk over, turn the doorknob, walk through the door, and go
down the stairs. Is that very complicated? I probably won´t shout. I
doubt if I´ll cry or holler. I doubt if I´ll laugh. But I will go
through the door.
Now Jesus said that on one side is eternal
life; on the other side is eternal death. The difference is a door.
Everybody in this house this morning who realizes he is unsaved,
realizes that Christ will give him eternal life, and will say, “Dear
Lord, I do accept You and come through the door of Jesus to
salvation”--that minute God makes you His child.
5. Salvation Compared With Coming Home
This is very interesting. Here is a boy in
Luke 15 who decides to leave his father and go to a far country. he
takes all of his good, goes to a far country, gets in trouble, looks for
a job, can´t find a job, finds a job feeding the hogs out in the hogpen,
and finally he started feeding himself the husks off the corn that the
swine would not eat--the cornhusks, if you please. he eats the
cornhusks. Finally he says, “The servants back home have more than this.
Why, the servants back home have some good bread and potatoes and meat
and beans. And here I am eating the cornshucks. I´ll rise and go to my
father.” He comes back to the father, and the father receives him.
Salvation is just going home. How many of
you ever go home to see your father?
Let´s say a family is having a reunion.
here are some children coming home. One child says, “Oh, it´s so good to
be home,” in tears. Another says, “BOY, IT´S GOOD TO BE HOME!” Still
another says, “Brother, it´s wonderful to be home,” very sincerely.
Another says, “Hello, Mother. How have you been?” Now who is the nearest
home? It doesn´t make any difference if one cries, one shouts, one
laughs, one feels good, one sighs--they are all home. The Lord never did
say that salvation is like a fellow who cries his way home or shouts his
way home. it is like coming home.
Maybe you are lost from God. You are away
from God. Jesus Christ is salvation. you need only to say, “Lord, I´m
I´ve wandered far away from God,
Now I´m coming home;
The paths of sin too long I´ve trod,
Lord, I´m coming home.
6. Salvation Is Compared to Saying “Yes” to
How many of you married ladies remember
very distinctly when you said “yes” to a proposal? Remember when he
said, “Will you?” Was it very complicated? How many of you cried when
you husband asked, “Will you marry me?” How many of you laughed when you
said it? How many of you in your heart felt wonderful, but you didn´t
show a lot of emotion?
Here is a proposal. I am on my knees, and I
say, “Beverly, would you make me the happiest man in all of the world?
Would you be mine?”
She says, “OH, WONDERFUL! YES!” Now she
said “yes” to my proposal, but she may just say, “Oh, [sob] yes!” She is
just as hooked as she was the other way! Or she may just say, “Um-hum.”
No matter how she may say it, she still has done the same thing.
Some of you folks are trying to get married
just like everybody else got married. It isn´t how you responded; it is
the question. Jesus said, “Will you be married? Will you come to Me?
Will you trust Me?” If you say “yes,” you are saved. If you say “no,”
you are lost. The way you respond to has nothing to do with your eternal
soul. And so he compares it with a proposal.
7. Jesus Compares It With Accepting and
Jesus told the parable of the man who “made
a great supper and bad many.” Jesus say, “Come unto me, all ye that
labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matt. 11:28).
I ask a friend, “Will you come over to my
house to eat?” Now if he hasn´t eaten for a week, he may say, “BROTHER,
WILL I! SURE!” Let us suppose he is so full he doesn´t want to eat a
bite today. “Yes, I´ll come.” Let us suppose we are having broiled
T-bone steak: “Boy, I´ll come!” Or, let us suppose he has been wanting
to come to our house for a long time and we haven´t spoken in a year,
and finally he realizes that we´re going to speak again. he says, “Oh, I
sure will come.”
Now let me ask you, Will he be any more
invited either way he answers? Not a bit. The way he would do it is to
accept the invitation.
Now God says, “I have made a great banquet
feast. I have prepared salvation. It is a gift. Would you come? Come.”
Now then, somebody will say, “You bet I´ll come. I´m so far in sin, I´ll
Somebody else says, “Yes, I need the Lord,
I´ll come”--very serious.
Somebody else says, “A BANQUET? I´LL
Somebody else says, “Whoopee!”--shouting.
Now, no matter how you act, you won´t get
any more to eat. The thing that makes you come is when you say “yes” to
Some folks want to get a candle, walk down
the aisle with a long flowing robe and say, “I come.” Some want to do
cartwheels and flop down the aisle and say, “I come.” Some want to cry,
“I come.” Well, any way is all right with me, as long as you don´t trust
that candle, or those cartwheels, or that feeling, or those tears, or
that joy, to save you. As long as you trust the eternal Word of God and
what He said, you have salvation. Would to God folks could understand
it. God simply said, “Come.” man has been trying to make religions, to
major on the minors, and major on the sidetracks, and major on the
sidelines, when the truth is, all you have to do to be saved is just
come to the Lord Jesus Christ.
8. Again he Compares It With Taking a Bath
Let me illustrate. In Titus 3:5 He says,
“Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his
mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration.” In John 13 Jesus
said, ‘You have already bathed once; now wash your feet.´ Salvation is
compared to taking a bath. But remember, Jesus is the One who bathes
you, makes you clean.
Now many of you take a bath once a week
whether you need it or not! It is not a big chore to take a bath. There
have been times when I have been real hot, I mean on a hot blistering
Texas day with the temperature 109 degrees. I recall it was 111 degrees
and I laid oak floor all day long. I almost died. I got home and said,
“Honey, I want a cold bath.” We turned on the cool water, and I jumped
in. As I jumped in, I said, “Whew-ew!” Now there are other times when I
have to take a bath real quickly; so I just rush in and rush out. But I
am just as clean either way. You see, it doesn't matter whether you say
“Whew-ew” or not. If you want to say “Whew-ew,” that's all right. But
you don't have to say it to take a bath. Taking a bath is very simple.
You know you are dirty, Jesus has the soap. You get in; He bathes you.
Now the sidelines may be different. The effect may be different. The
outward results may be different. But the bath is the same. You get in
and take the bath. Jesus said that salvation is that way. He cleanses
all who come for “the washing of regeneration.”
Some of you are so dirty and you have been
so far into sin, that when you jump into salvation you are going to
realize that you are clean, and you are going to say, “Whoopee! I´m
clean!” Some are going to say, “I have been so dirty; it´s so good to be
clean”--crying all the time. Some are going to say, “I´m so glad to be
saved.” some, “Yes, it´s good to be a Christian.” Now it all depends on
how dirty you are. It all depends on how hot it has been. It depends on
how much you need the bath. But the salvation is not the whoopee or the
whew-ew or the joy or the thrill of the tears. It is getting in the tub
and taking the bath.
9. Salvation Is Compared to Putting Money
in the Bank
Second Timothy 1:12, “I am persuaded that
he is able to keep that which I have committed [or deposited] unto him
against that day.” You take some money and put it in the bank. Now, two
fellows go to the bank and each one puts in $100.00. One says, “O boy! O
BOY! I saved $100.00.” The other quietly says, “Me too.” Now which one
has saved $100.00? Both have. You mean how happy you get about the money
doesn´t mean who has the $100.00 in the bank? That is right. The
question is not, Did you shout to the teller, or cry to the teller, or
hit the teller? The question is, Did you give the money to the teller?
A lot of folks say, “I´m saved because I
shouted and felt it all over.” That is not why you are saved. you are
saved because you put your soul in the hands of Jesus. You say, “I was
there when it happened and I ought to know.” Pretty song, but it isn´t
enough. Sure you were there when it happened and you ought to know. But
you are not saved because you were there when it happened. You are saved
because you trusted Jesus. You are saved because you said “yes” to
Calvary and said, “I will deposit my soul to Jesus´ keeping.”
10. Getting Saved Is Like Eating a Meal
The Bible says, “Come, all things are now
ready.” When we get home some little boy is going to say, “Mom, is
dinner ready?” “Yes, Son.” My little boy David only hits the floor about
twice. He dives in. “O boy, Mom! O boy! Got some gravy!” I walk in,
look, and say, “Gravy again.” We eat the same gravy. No difference at
all. Same thing.
Becky might say, “Hot dog!”
David might say, “Whoopee!”
I might say, “I´m so hungry, I´ve got to
get to the food.” But we each eat the same food. How we eat it has
nothing to do with it. Some fellow can sop it, another can eat it with a
spoon. Some fellow can lick it up, another can eat it with a fork. Some
fellow can put it on toast, and another can put his biscuits in it. But
it is the same gravy. I´m saying, it isn´t what happened when you got
saved-- the experience, etc.. It is, Did you trust Jesus and did He save
III. OLD TESTAMENT TYPES SHOW THE
SIMPLICITY OF GETTING SAVE
The third thing, and I must hasten on. Not
only Bible examples and New Testament comparisons, but Old Testament
A coat of skins God offered Adam and Eve.
What did they do? They took it, that is all.
A brazen serpent on the pole in Numbers.
Those bitten and dying could only look at that brazen serpent and be
An ark in Noah´s day. What did they have to
do? Come inside the ark. That´s all--just come inside.
The little lamb that was slain. What did a
Jew have to do? Put his hand on the head of the lamb.
Old Testament types show how simple it is
on our part to be saved. To be sure, when you come to Christ your sins
are forgive...you are become one of God´s children...you will go to
Heaven. A BIG THING. Oh, yes! Immense. But God does all the big work.
All you do is take it by faith.
Let me illustrate. Recently in visitation I
went to the home of a lady who is here this morning. We knelt and prayed
and she said, “Yes, I know I ought to do it. I know I ought to do it.”
I said, “Will you do it?”
“Yes,” she said, “I will.” We knelt to
pray. I think with some emotion in her heart but not much in her voice,
she said, “Dear Lord, I confess my sins. I pray You will forgive me. I
receive You as my Saviour now.” She received Christ.
I went down the street a little further.
There were two young people who are here this morning. I explained to
them. One teen-age girl would not look at me, but kept looking down. I
told her how to be saved, how she would not have to worry any more about
going to hell. Finally she prayed. Afterward I said, “Now are you
“Oh, yes,” she said.
And that girl who hesitated to decide and
then timidly turned to Jesus in her heart was saved.
The other girl was joyful, immediately
happy. But both girls were saved just alike the moment they put their
trust in Jesus.
Will You Take Christ and This Simple
go to Heaven
