101 Devotionals for Boys from the Lives of Great Christians and 101 Devotionals for Girls from the Lives of Great Christians will both be published in 2017. We’re publishing one or two devotionals a week to give you a taste of what you’ll get in those two gift books. This one is based on a story from George Mueller: Pickpocket to Praying Provider (Potter’s Wheel series #3).
“God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.”
All his life, George had known that Jesus had died on the cross. But now, for the first time, he understood why it was important. He knew that he must be forgiven of his sins by the blood of Jesus. For the first time, George understood that Jesus loved him and died for him. He trusted in Him, personally.
Maybe you’ve heard about Jesus all your life too. But just believing facts about Jesus and the Bible doesn’t save you or make you a Christian. It means coming to Him with your own personal sin and trusting in Him to be your own personal Savior.
George became a true Christian. His life was radically changed.
Heavenly Father, thank You for sending Your only begotten Son, Jesus, to take my sin for me and rise again for me. Help me to trust Him for my own personal salvation, for all eternity, and day by day.
