My Story

I used to ask myself this question which would sometimes trouble my mind. What is the meaning of life ; why am I so blind?

Do we live and  die and that’s it or is there a reason why I’m here; I didn’t do this very often cause it would lead me into fear.

My dad got a letter from his sister saying she got ‘saved’. Saved from what I wondered, maybe I need saved too; but I didn’t know what it meant or what I had to do.

I got a bush job for a sawmill not far from our town; crew were really nice guys who didn’t fool around. One day the foreman told me the reason I was there; he said “ Jesus wants to save you if you should really give a care”. I said I’d think about it if I knew what to do. He said it’s not church or religion or an organization, too. Then he went on to tell me what I had to do. Jesus died as a sacrifice for everybody’s sin and they will receive eternal life if they will only let Him in. It’s a personal relationship with Jesus who gave His life for you; ask him to forgive your sins and He’ll come into you. I did it as he told me, what a load came off my mind. I was born again and was no longer blind. He told me to get a Bible and read it daily, too and get a Christian friend to baptize me, was all I had to do.

That was 48 years ago now and the Word’s my daily bread, as I continue to grow, and keep my spirit fed. Al quoted John 3:16 when he told me what to do and I learned that God is Love so I’ll quote it hear for you. For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.Vs.17 too, for God did not send His son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Jesus would be saved. We’re in a battle and in a harvest please give me a call anytime.

Love Ed Watson,

Lumby, BC
