Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved–you and your household. (Acts 16:31)

Dearly beloved,

We have received the heavenly gift of salvation only by the grace of God.

My mother had this salvation experience when she was young. Soon after her marriage, she started believing the Lord Jesus. However, after this, she had to pass through so many tribulations in her life. Yet she never left the Lord.

Every day, she read the Bible and prayed and attended the church regularly every week. She was zealous for God with the determination that she would never let Him down no matter what the situation was.

In those days, my father had not tasted the love of Christ. It was my mother who took the four of us, the children, to the church which was far away.

In those days, we had a car but as my father never used to accompany us, we could not travel by that car. So all the way to church, we went by walk and my mother used to sing and praise on the way. We were impressed by our mother’s faith which encouraged us to go to church regularly.

Besides, she fasted and prayed every Friday for my father’s transformation as she wanted the whole family to enjoy the blessings and happiness that she derived from being close to the Lord. She also offered a prayer of vow that she would dedicate one of her children for ministry if my father was saved. But she never specified the child’s name.

I have a sister and two brothers. The Lord accepted my mother’s vow. He saved my father. Days passed by! My mother fell sick and my father started praying for her healing. One day, seeing my father praying on knees, we greatly rejoiced. Since then, we began to pray as a family.

Days went by! When my husband’s parents were on the lookout for a girl for him, he had wanted a God-fearing but a tall girl of 5.6. For three years, they had been searching for an alliance for him and through one pastor they chose me as I was quite tall. The Lord accepted my mother’s prayers, gave me the name Evangeline and united me with a loving family which is doing a great ministry. Today, God has made me proclaim His Gospel. How good God is!

Yes, the Lord has done great things for us. Thank Him for the great salvation He has given you and rejoice in Him.

The Bible says, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved–you and your household” (Acts 16:31). According to this Bible verse, pray continuously for the salvation of your family and believe that He will surely save them. He will certainly transform them and grant them the gift of salvation.

Prayer:

Loving Lord Jesus,

I praise You for all the benefits You have provided me. I thank You for granting me the priceless gift of salvation. I believe in You for the salvation of my family. I pray for their transformation. Save them by your mighty grace. Fill our home with the joy of your presence. Continue to pour your blessings upon us.

In Your matchless name I pray.

Amen.
