An Important Date

For each of us there are a number of important dates on the calendar.  The day of our birth, and the dates on which our children were born are among those times.  Some mothers remember not just the day but the hour on which each of their children came into this world.  There is of course the day we were married which marked a very happy time and a great transition in our lives.  Men, you would do well to remember that date!  There are other dates that mark times of sadness.  We often remember the dates on which some of our loved ones died.  In fact, for some, not only is it remembered each year, but relived.  For some the date of a spouse’s death brings back some of the sorrow experienced back then.

Perhaps, the most important date for Christians is the day on which they trusted in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.  Though this was a joyous occasion, and one that changed our eternal destiny, many of God’s people cannot confirm the actual day.  I have counseled people who were troubled they could not indicate the day on which they were saved.  Well, the important thing is to know that you have trusted Jesus Christ, the Son of God, to save you from your sins.  You have believed in the One Who bore your penalty for sin on the cross, and rose again the third day.  If you believe in Christ today, rejoice, and be committed to follow Him the rest of your days… or dates!
