Tag: ask Jesus into your heart

A few brief thoughts… When I was in college in the mid-nineties, I recall individuals from a local denomination walking the campus in the evening, initiating conversations with students about their salvation.  Their approach was direct, and memorable.  When afforded the opportunity, they inquired of a prospective convert, “Are you saved?”  It was a good question, and not a bad conversation starter.  I’ve since borrowed it myself.  Of course, if the student they asked responded with a “no,” they would then attempt to share the plan of salvation with him/her as they understood it.   And they understood it differently than I do.  For if memory (and youthful perception) serves me correctly, I recall walking by one of them one evening as he was bowing in prayer with another.  I can’t be certain what they were praying about, but based on what I know of this denomination, it’s quite possible they were praying what is often referred to as “the sinner’s prayer.”
