I Can't Imagine Not Living A Christian
(The Sharon Cannon Story)
Jesus Did It!
Hello, my name is Sharon Cannon, and I'd like to take a minute and share my testimony with you. I really don't have a flashy, exciting testimony to share because I literally grew up in church. My father was a deacon, a Sunday School teacher, and just about anything else anyone needed him to be in the church, and my mother was the church pianist, a Sunday School department secretary, and just about anything else anyone needed her to be in the church. So I was taken to church just about every time the doors opened, and I honestly can't remember a time in my life when I DIDN'T know about Jesus.
When I was about eight or nine years old, I don't remember WHY, but I started wondering about baptism and what it meant. It might have been because we were having a revival at church that week. Anyway, I remember going to my daddy and asking him about baptism. So he sat down with me and explained to me about why I needed to be saved, and about how to be saved. He told me that I was a sinner, even though I hadn't ever done any BIG bad things, because every time I lied, or said a bad word, or even thought a bad thought, I sinned. He told me that, since I had sinned, I deserved to go to hell because God is perfect and the only way to please him is to be perfect. (I already knew what hell is.) But Daddy said that Jesus had taken the punishment for my sins in my place when He died on the cross. He told me that, in order to be saved, all I had to do was to repent, trust Jesus, and accept Him as my Savior. He asked me if I was ready to do that, and I said yes.
So we knelt and prayed together there, and I told God that I believe that Jesus died so my sins could be forgiven, and that I accepted his offer of eternal life. I confessed that I was a sinner and thanked him for forgiving me. And I told him that I wanted to follow Him from then on, forever and ever.
Since that simple prayer, there are many more things that I have learned about God and about the Christian faith. There have been peaks and valleys, times of doubt and times of rejoicing. I have learned that, even in the times when I have not been living very close to God, He has still always been there with me, taking care of me. I simply cannot imagine living life without the love of Jesus to strengthen me, and I look forward to going to be with Him in heaven when I die. And I have grown to have a real passion for soul winning in the last few years.

Dear Reader -are you at peace with God? If not, you can be. Do you know what awaits you when you die? You can have the assurance from God that heaven will be your home, if you would like to be certain. Either Jesus Christ died for your sins, or He didn't (He did!). Are you prepared to stand before God on the Judgment Day and tell Him that you didn't need the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross to have your sins forgiven and get in right-standing with God? We plead with you ... please don't make such a tragic mistake.
