Recently a lady told her pastor that she thought she had been saved years before. However, when the Lord put her in a situation where none of her family was around; He began to work in her heart, and she realized she needed to be saved. Her family, and church friends then rejoiced with her.

Later she admitted she had known facts about God, but she had never really known Him.

How about you, dear widowed friend? Did you or your husband ever doubt where you would spend eternity?

Maybe you grew up in a good, moral family or a Christian home. If you attended church, you knew Bible stories and perhaps Bible Trivia, but maybe not The Answer to eternal life?

How privileged I felt to meet my future husband at the church both our families attended. I am grateful for the 46 years that the Lord gave us together.

I appreciated the fact that my husband never mentioned doubting his salvation. He made it clear when he preached that Jesus died for us, was the only One God resurrected from the dead, and is the only way to heaven.

The Bible tells us in 2 Cor. 6:2b, “Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.”

Since I accepted Him as a child, I not only know about God, but I know my eternal destination will be to dwell with Him.

I want to be a possessor, and not just a professor. I don’t want to just know things about Him, but I want to walk and talk with Him daily.

What a privilege to be a Christian widow!
