VV Baptism Testimonies

Eli McKay

Both my mom and dad taught me about Jesus. I also learned about God at church. I remember my mom reading to me from my Kid's Bible and hearing all the different stories about Jesus. My mom and dad always told me that Jesus loves me very much, even if I am bad. They let me know that He wants everyone to ask Him in their hearts.

One day my mom was driving me to my Grandma's house before she went to work. We always prayed every morning together. We had been praying a lot for my Grandpa because he was old and was very sick and did not know Jesus. We prayed for him again that morning, so that he could get better and one day real soon ask Jesus in his heart. When we were done praying, I told my mom I haven't asked Jesus in my heart yet. I knew if I didn't do this I would not go to heaven. I told my mom that I wanted to ask Jesus in my heart right now. So... as we were driving my mom told me she asked me a whole bunch of questions to make sure I understood what I was doing and who Jesus was because I was pretty little when I did this.  I answered all the questions right. I know that it sounds funny that I asked Jesus in my heart in the car, but I told my mom that I had to do it right now and I did not want to wait. So.. I asked Him in my heart in a car in front of my grandma's house, when I was almost 4 years old on Aug. 31, 2010. 

I chose to make Jesus the boss of my life because I knew He died for my sins and I could not go to Heaven without Him in my heart. There are some mean kids that go to my school and I try to show them God's love anyways. I sometimes even pray for them. It's not easy being nice to people that are mean to me, but I know that I need to be nice to them so they can know about Jesus.
