At five years old, I thought I was automatically saved because of my family’s good works and their involvement in church. I understood we were Jewish, and belonged to the group called The People of God, mentioned in the Old Testament. I was so proud of our Jewish heritage until my mother one day shocked me by explaining to me that I wasn’t Jewish, but that I was a Gentile! At that moment I started a search to find out what I needed to do to get right with God. It wasn’t until I was 13 years old, that I finally asked the Lord Jesus to forgive me of my sins and received Him as my Savior.
