“Jesus, I accept you as my personal Lord and Savior. Please come
into my heart and forgive me of all of my sins.” This prayer is the
prayer all of us New Christians were told to say once we were ready
to give ourselves over to God. We came into the church, and during
the Benediction (end of church for all of you really New Christians)
we answered the call to give ourselves over to Christ. We walked
down that long aisle to the front of the whole entire church, tears
flowing, and body bent and beaten by the world. We walked down that
aisle to Salvation! Everyone in the church cried out “Thank you
Jesus!” The pastor greeted us at the end of that long walk with open
arms. Oh what a glorious occasion! He put his hands on our head,
prayed a magnificent prayer, I mean a prayer so powerful he almost
knocked us down with the thrust of his hand! “Oh, this must be the
Power of the Holy Ghost they keep talking about!” Now all we needed
to do was ask Jesus to be our personal Lord and Savior. The pastor
even gave us the words to say. And we did as we were guided, for
after all, this will get us to God!! Then after all of the cheers and
Hallelujahs, we were introduced to the church as a new member and
a New Christian. We are sat down and given a list of all the church
committees, and all of the organizations (that never have enough
people to run it) and encouraged to join at least one. And if we have
any other questions, the pastor would be in his office Tuesdays and
Fridays between 10 am and 2 pm. Then we were sent on our way,
back into the world from which we came.
So we go on our way. Finally, we asked Jesus into our hearts and
now we are saved! All of our sins are forgiven! We are New
Christians! But wait a minute I don’t feel any different. I don’t look
any different. Aren’t there some rules or something I need to follow?
Can I still go to the bar? NOW WHAT?
Now what is right! I know what you are going through, that is why
I wrote this book. To let you know that you are not alone. I too was
lost and confused when I came to Christ. It was like I was expected
to jump right on in. Join the choir, teach Sunday school, join this, go to
that. Everything that everyone was saying to me made no sense. I
mean it was like they weren’t even speaking English! Didn’t they
understand that I didn’t know what I was doing? Didn’t they know that
I was fresh off the streets? How can I teach Sunday school if I have
never read the Bible? Are these people crazy?
