Talk 3: In the Belly of the Beast

BO SANCHEZ: Welcome home.

Some of you are crying. Some of you are hurting. Some of you are grieving. Some of you are celebrating. Some of you. are very happy.

But you belong here—both of you. This house welcomes everyone—no matter what color your shirt is. This house welcomes you. I want you to know that

I have taken a stand. Every single election I take a stand.

People were asking me in the recent campaign. “Bro. Bo, why don’t you make a stand?”

I told them, I always take a stand in every election. I take a stand for the House that was built in 1980 —the first quote-unquote “Feast”.

We did not call it Feast yet then . It was in the garage of my parents’ house.

I was 14 years old in that very first Feast. I led the prayer meeting.

It is God’s call for me to stand for that spiritual home—that is now in 26 countries. Thousands of people call it their home.

I have no choice. In every election, I have to separate my personal choice from my public persona. Why? Because I’ve got children—many children.

And I encourage them to wear a political color. To discern well. And even to campaign. And to go out into the street.

When my daughter who wears pink and my son who wears red tell me, ‘Tay, ‘Nay, sama ka—Dad, Mom, join us.”

I tell my son and my daughter—thousands of them: “Ako ‘yung Nanay. Kailangan may taong-bahay. Kasi darating ang araw, tapos na ang kampanya, tapos na ang eleksyon. At uuwi kayo—sugatan? Uuwi kayo – gutom? Uuwi kayo – pagod na pagod. ‘Yung iba masayang-masaya. Sino ang magpapakain? Kailangan may magluto.—I am your Mother. I have to stay home. Because the day you will come when the campaign, the election will be over.

You will come home—wounded, hungry, tired. Some of you are very happy. Who will serve food? Someone has to cook.”

My Stand

I stand by this House. It’s a very difficult choice to stay non-partisan the whole time. Every single election.

I came to know Jesus when I was 12. I started serving when I was 13. We started the Community— this Feast—when I was 14 years old. I’m 55 now. Do the math. I’m an old man. I’ve experienced regime changes. I’ve experienced elections. I stand by the same House. This House is your safe place. And all those doors are open for anyone—no matter what color your shirt is.

Why? Nanay pa rin ako. I am still your Mother.

You are still my child.

Yung mga sugatan, yung mga malungkot na malungkot, halika, yakapin kita.—Those who are

wounded, who are very sad, come, I will embrace you to comfort you.

I want to weep with you. I want to grieve with you. I really do. Because I love you. I feel what you feel. And I am praying for you. I really do.

Yung mga masaya, yung mga nag-ce-celebrate, kasi napagod sila sa mga rallies and their candidate won —Those who are happy because your candidate won, I want you to know I celebrate with you.

Why? Anak rin kita. You are also my children. And you know what? That’s what democracy is. A person walks with two legs. Kailngan dalawa, e.—There should be two: Administration, Opposition. Hindi pwedeng isa lang. — Can’t be one only. So, both of you are needed to build this country. Both of you — behind the pink shirt, behind the red shi rt, behind the technicolored shirt, lahat tayo—all of us– we’re all children of God. We all are.

And so, I invite you to look at that person beside you as your b rother and your sister in Christ. That person is made in His image. A God -carier. Nasa sa loob ang Panginoon sa kanya. Respect that person. And treat that person as the house of God. No more name calling. No more demeaning. No more bullying. No more looking down at the other person. Kapatid mo ‘yan. The person is your sibling. Ako ay isang nanay na lumuluhod sa harap ng aking mga anak. – I am a mother kneeling before my children. Please. Mahalin ninyo ang isa’t isa. – Love one another. Bahay natin ito. This is our House.

Today, I want to preach the message: There are blessings at the bottom.

Welcome to the Book of Jonah, Talk 3, titled In the Belly of the Beast. And we are in this chapter where Jonah gets swallowed up. May I invite you to pray. Put your hand on your chest:

Jesus, speak to me more, let your Word do its work. Lift me up. Refresh me.

Renew me more. By the power of your Word. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

There are blessings at the bottom. This principle — this truth—people have known for a long, long time.

In the 14th century, there was this Italian poet, Dante Alighieri who wrote The Divine Comedy, and this is what he said: “The path to Paradise begins in Hell.”

What does that mean? That many times, for someone to climb out of the pit, he must hit rock bottom. How many of you have experienced rock bottom?

What is rock bottom? That place where there are no alternatives. That place where your pride disappears.

That place where your stubbornness evaporates. That’s where your deafness is healed. And maybe for the very first time in a long time, you start listening.

My Rock Bottom

Last year, I hit rock bottom. The memory is so fresh it’s as though it happened only yesterday. It was the 9th day of my battling COVID. There was an oxygen tube attached to my nose, an IV (intravenous device) stuck in my arm.

I remember, I suffered diarrhea—severe diarrhea that every drop of moisture in my body I felt had been drained out. Massive headache. My skull felt like it was inflamed. And as if those were not enough, I had 41 -degree fever ravaging my body. And then my stomach turned ballistic. I started vomi ting. Wala ng laman yung tiyan ko—My tummy was empty. And so, on that one night, I remember, I was lying down already on the floor of our living room. Could not take it anymore.

I was hugging the Little Twin Stars Tub of my wife. (At right, my Facebook post about it.) And I was puking up all my acids there. At least

I was puking up in style. Sinamahan ako ni Lala at ni Kiki. Yun ang pangalan n ila. – The twins, Lala and Kiki, joined me. And so, as I was there just puking and puking, I thought I was going to die.

At that moment, I prayed, “Lord God, if this is how I’m going to die, take me. I prefer that You would let me live a little longer to enjoy my two sons and to be with my beautiful wife. But if you want me to go home, the answer is “Yes, I surrender.”

And at that moment, I realized something: All my achievements , all the things that I have, all my resources, all the money, lahat ng ginawa ko sa buhay ko – everything I did in my life…You know what? They were of equal value as the vomit in that tub. I know it sounds gross, but I realized nothing that I valued mattered anymore at that moment—when you know your life hung by a thread.

So, I said to God, “I surrender my kids to You, whom I will not see anymore. I surrender my wife to You. I surrender my loved ones to You. I surrender work to You. I surrender this, I surrender that…”

I surrendered everything. And then, I noticed there was this shift within me. And I felt I was in a different place. Yes, there was fever. Yes, there was mig raine. Yes, there was vomiting. Yes, there was diarrhea. Yes, all my symptoms were still there. But OMG, O my God, I was so happy. I was so at peace. Because I found my surrendered place.

Blessings at the Bottom

It is true: there are blessings at the bottom. Because God –

He spoke to me. And kept on speaking to me.

You see when you’re at that moment, you’re very attentive. And God spoke to me, and God spoke to me. And there are blessings at the bottom.

And the greatest blessing is the Blesser Himself. I found God at the bottom. I can’t tell you everything He told me.

I wrote them in my book, Find Your Surrendered Place. Shameless plug.

But just in case you think even for a moment that I am now an expert, and always in my surrendered place, that’s not true.

Every day I still struggle in trusting God and surrendering my life to Him. It’s still a struggle. And I know I still have to struggle.

Why? Because I know if I do not do that, God is going to get my attention again, and He’s going to allow me to hit rock bottom again and I’d want to avoid that.

So, I’m trying my best to listen to Him.

But here’s the point: I want to share with you today the story of Jonah.

Because he hit bottom. And we’re going to talk about that some more.

My dear friends, the Bible is a weird book. Accept it. This is it. You know it’s filled with people who, I mean, think about it: you’ve got angels, you’ve got talking snakes, you’ve got people who rise from the dead, and then you’ve got sea monsters. Sea monsters!

Different Story

In the Book of Jonah, the story is that a great fish swallowed Jonah. And in the pop culture and in children’s Bible books, the whale is a friendly whale. Some books, -jonah/ give a name to the whale— Bob, Harry, Jules.

And so, Jonah has a three-day staycation inside the fish where he chats with God. But in reality, the original story is not very cute. Why? Because this is an ancient book.

You see, the Bible was written in a different time, different location, different culture, different language – and because of that, there’s a lot of parts that are lost in translation. If you want to underst and the Bible, you’ve got to understand that it was written in a different language, specifically Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek. It was written from a different culture, specifically ancient Israelite. And so, to understand the Bible , you’ve got to understand what the original author was trying to say.

Lost in Translation

And when you think about lost in translation ….

Teenagers, have you ever tried to explain a meme to your parents? Difficult, right?

Oh, my God. Now, by the way, this is not my problem. Always up to date, you know. Just kidding. :)

Many years ago, my boys were still tiny.

I went to my wife and I said, “You know, it’s so bad. They’re so rude in their language now.

“Oh, what’s that?” she asked. “Lol. They’re cursing each other.”

You know, my kids – bewildered look: “What do you mean, Dad?”

Lol—you put a letter u there – and this cannot be.”

You know, my kids started laughing and they laughed for about a month. Because I didn’t get it. And those were only 30 years between my kids and me.

Holy Spirit Inspired

So many words get lost in translation. Imagine, 2000 to 3000 years.

So, we need to recapture what were lost. And that’s basically what I’m sharing with you today. When we read the Bible, we got to go back to those ancient times. How did they write this?

Last week, I told you, the author wrote this as a satire. What is a satire? A satire uses irony, humor, and exaggeration—to tell people this is stupidity. That’s what a satire is. So, if somebody reads the Bible, reads Jonah, and says every detail here is history, you don’t get it. You’re not respecting the author.

This is how the Holy Spirit inspired the author to write it. The Holy Spirit inspired him to write it as a satire. If you do not respect that, you’re not respecting the Holy Spirit who inspired him.

Which brings me now to the second part of that message. And I’m going to be calling on Audee Villaraza to do the more difficult part of explaining our talk.


To continue what Bro. Bo had been preaching, I think it’s so important for us to do this: We need to understand the context of how the author wrote the Book of Jonah.

Like, what was happening in his life?

We always say this whenever we read the Bible: Know the point of view. Like, what was the worldview back then?

How did they see the world?

And it’s very important because, you know, we can all certainly agree that how we view the world today is so much different from how they viewed the world centuries ago. Now we can travel the world. Now we’ve got YouTube. We’ve got the Internet. We’ve got news all over—local and international. We’ve even got fake news. So, how we see the world today is so much different from how they saw the world back then.

Let me give you an example. Whenever you see stormy waters or choppy waters out in the ocean, what’s the first thing that you think of? There is a typhoon.

Or, you know, it’s monsoon season—especially here in the country. We’re used to that. It’s mid-year here in the Philippines, and so we know that there’s something that’s coming.

But back then, to them, whenever there would be stormy waters, you know the first thing they would think of? Pre-Creation. That day that God created the world. That was their reference point.

During ancient times, whenever the people would think of stormy waters, they think it’s Pre-Creation. There was nothing. There was darkness. So, to the author who was writing this, nothing signified chaotic waters. And to them, chaotic waters was something that they feared. Why? Because they did not know what was underneath the water. Unlike now, we can scuba-dive, we see documentaries. They did not know, so they feared water. To them, water represented death.

But there is another reference point: Again, the story of Creation:

When I was reading this, I was like, “Hold on…Great sea creatures?

And they’re good?”

Sea Monsters

Whenever I think of those words, great sea creatures, I think of the horrors in the Jurassic World movie. You remember that? That great, great creature?

When I think of great sea creatures, I think of the Megalodon—you know, that pre historic shark that can eat a whole boat.

I think of the Kraken (giant octopus- like monster) in the movie Pirates of the Carribean.

Yes, it might be a mythological figure, but guess what: they’re not goodat least for the preservation of human life.

Quick lesson: Your definition of good is not the same as God’s definition of good.

So, sometimes, when you see a person that you don’t like, that person is bad, God might think otherwise.

Because God might say, “I might use that person.” So, it’s so important for us, my friends, to always seek the truth from God’s perspective— not from our limited, weak, worldly perspective.

Jonah Prays

By this time, Jonah ends up in the belly of this great big fish. And while he was inside, here’s what Jonah does: He started praying.

You know, the first time we preached this, we said that Jonah was fighting with the Ninevites.

Now we’re finding out that Jonah was not actually fighting with the Ninevites. He was fighting with God Himself.

This is Jonah saying, “You threw me. You have driven me from Your Presence. You threw me into the ocean depths.”

But then all of a sudden Jonah says this:

As he was sinking down into that watery gra ve, Jonah was still looking up at the Holy Temple of God which is the highest point on dry ground.

And then, he said, in Verse 5: “I sank beneath the waves and the waters closed over me…”

I wonder how many people feel like that right now. You feel as though the waves are crashing over your life and you’re being buried in this watery grave…

And then Jonah said, “Seaweed wrapped itself around my head.”

He’s like human sushi.

A Beautiful Prayer

This is the beauty about the wisdom of the Bible. When you read the Bible, don’t just read it from the surface level.Let me give you very quickly the context of this prayer. It’s a beautiful prayer. But I want you to know that this is not an original prayer by Jonah. It’s actually plagiarized. The author was plagiarizing.

But do your research. You know, study.

Because here, the author was pointing out something.

Remember that this is a time of the ancient Jews. The Hebrews—they knew their Bible. They had it memorized. They understood it. They took it to heart. And so, if you are the reader of this particular passage of the Bible, you know:

“This prayer sounds awfully familiar . I’ve heard this before.”

You know what he was pointing out to? He was linking it to the book of Psalms.

A time when David was also fighting and running away from God.

And so, if you are the reader of this text, you are like, “Oh, my goodness, Jonah is like David.”

This is how brilliant the author is.

New Life, New Beginnings

One thing that I need to say: I love how the author inserted that prayer. Because one thing that it tells me is this:

Imagine Jonah was inside the belly of this great big fish. It was complete darkness. No light. No reading material… And yet he knew that prayer. Why? Because it was here in his heart. He was close to God.

That’s why he knew the prayer.

Here’s the message: If you can get close to God this year, my friend, if you can get close to God’s Word, and really have his Word in your heart, I’m telling you, you can be in the darkest of places, and still find light and hope amidst all that darkness that you are in.

But one thing I need to point out: We already know that Jonah went down to Joppa because he wanted to run away from the Lord. And then he went down to the boat to sleep. And now, we see that Jonah goes down once more in the depths of the ocean.

I want you to know this: In the Bible, the number 3 has a significance.

Actually, in the Bible, every number has a significance.

This is the third time that Jonah has gone down. He went down to Joppa.

He went down to the boat. Now, he’s down in this watery grave.

Now, the number 3 signifies new life, new beginnings. Who among you needs new life, new beginnings? That’s also me. I’m preaching to myself.

I want you to hear this message because this is so important.

Jonah went down three times. Now, it says that on the third time, he went down into the belly of the whale.

Now, I tried to imagine it myself: This is the lowest point that Jonah can ever get. Can you imagine anything lower than this: you are a human sushi?

Just like those Filipino jokes — where one guy is boasting what his grandfather can do, and another guy boasts his grandpa can do better:

Guy 1: Ang lolo ko kumain ng isang daang sushi. – My grandpa ate 100 sushis.

Guy 2: Wala’yan sa lolo ko. Ang lolo ko ginagawang sushi.—That’s nothing with my grandpa. My grandpa is made into sushi. ☺

Jonah’s Decision

Imagine: This is the rock bottom for Jonah—all because of Jonah’s decision. Not because of God.

Remember that it was Jonah who chose to disobey God. He chose to run away from God. He chose to go down to the boat and then sleep.

And remember, Jonah was the one who said, “Throw me into the water.”

Some of the things that you go through in life that are horrible…

Guess what:

Sometimes, it’s not on God. It’s on you. Because of the decisions that you make.

We need to stop blaming God for some of the things that happen in our life because sometimes, it’s really on us.

But one thing that shocked me is that while all this was happening to Jonah, you would think: he was in the belly of this great big fish, and yet did Jonah repent? Did Jonah have a little remorse?

Some of you might say, “Yes, Bro. Audee—because he said to God, ‘I will make sacrifices to You. I will make a vow to You.’”

Yes, that sounds like it. It sounds like a repentance. But in reality, if you read forward – and we’re going to talk about it in the next few Sundays– Jonah doesn’t even repent—because his words were beautiful, but his actions did not align with his words.

I truly believe this: that the best way, and the greatest way to show repentance, is not through your lips, but through your life. When you show people that you are willing to change, that’s true repentance. Because if you see that the person is not really changing, just keeps saying “Sorry,” that’s not really repentance. That’s just lip service.

A Second Chance

Jonah did not repent. And yet, it says in Verse 10:

The Lord ordered the fish to spit Jonah out onto the beach.

I’m thinking, God gave Jonah a second chance? I’ve been wrestling with this question all week…The Lord ordered the fish to spit Jonah out onto the beach.

Because when I was reading this, I was like, “Lord, are You sure You gave Jonah a second chance? You know that he disobeyed You. You know that he ran away from You. You know that he didn’t even ask forgiveness from You. Is this how You operate, Lord? Is this a pattern by which how you operate? For instance, if I don’t ask for forgiveness, you’ll still give me a second chance?”

That’s what we’re thinking about, right? And I kept on questioning God, “God is this the way you operate?”

And then it hit me—like a freight train it hit me…

You know, in my 40 plus years of existence in this world, I had done so many things in this life that I’m not proud of. I had lied to people. I’d cheated people. Believe it or not, I’d even stolen from people. I’d backstabbed people. I’d run out of friends. I’d done some very vile things that will make you think twice about being my friend—back then.

But you know what? God continued to love me. God continued to be there for me. And you know what happened? Through that love, that unconditional love—it healed me. And I became a better person —little by little.

Jonah’s Rock-Bottom Moment

When you encounter the true love of God in your life, you will n ot have any other choice but to change. Because when you keep receiving that love, when you encounter the powerful love of Jesus in your life, it convicts you to want to change. That’s the kind of love that God can give us.

And so, yes, God will continue to give you a second chance until maybe this is the chance you will accept His love and completely change for the better.

Thinking of Jonah… Jonah must have been afraid of being in the belly of that great big fish.

But you know, Jonah wasn’t afraid of the fish. He wasn’t. You know what he was afraid of? He said it . Jonah said it in Verse 4:

Jonah was more afraid being separated from his God.

And you know, my friends, this is what I call a rock -bottom moment. Jonah was more afraid being separated from his God.

A rock-bottom moment is when you feel you’ve been abandoned by everybody, including God. When you feel like nobody’s there with you anymore—that’s a rock-bottom moment.

Peter’s Rock-Bottom Moment

I remember that there was somebody in the New Testament who also had a rock-bottom moment. His name is Peter. Ah, Peter—Peter who denied Jesus three times—even though he said that he was going to be there for Jesus when Jesus needs him the most. That was the failure of Peter as a disciple. But yet what happened after? Jesus came to Peter on that shore that beautiful morning.

And get this: That was the third time. Number 3.

That was the third time that Jesus showed Himself to his apostles.

Peter was about to experience new life and new beginnings.

And so, Peter, he was fishing on a boat one day. And Jesus had already risen from the dead. But He showed Himself already three times. That morning — Peter hadn’t even asked forgiveness yet—Jesus came to Peter:

“Peter, do you love Me… Do you love Me…Do you love Me? Then feed My lambs.”

This went on three times. You know what Jesus was doing?

This is my theory: For each time Peter denied Jesus —three times– Jesus had forgiveness for Peter three times.

He said, “Peter, I trust you. Now, feed my lambs. Peter, I’ll give you another chance. Now feed my lambs.”

My goodness. This is the God that we worship, my friends.

A God who will continue to give y ou chance, after chance, after chance.

Our Rock-Bottom Moment

Here’s one thing: Before Peter could fulfill the prophecy and the command that he would become the rock by which Jesus would build His Church upon, he needed to go through a rock-bottom moment.

And so did Jonah. Before Jonah could fulfill the command of God,

he needed to first go through a rock- bottom moment.

Now I don’t know who this message is for. You might had gone through

a rock-bottom moment, or maybe you’re still there right now — and you know what I’m talking about.

What is the purpose of you being in a rock-bottom moment?

Here it is:

a rock bottom. Why?Just like Peter who needed to go through a rock-bottom moment, and Jonah who needed to go through a rock-bottom moment, you and I need to go though

So that we would know that Rock—that God is the Rock at the bottom.

That God is at the bottom. That there’s a blessing at the bottom.

Why is there a blessing at the bottom? Because the Blesser is at the bottom.

That’s the purpose of a rock-bottom moment, my friend.

So that you would see: “My goodness, God is here with me!”

The Number 3

I want to close. I want to go back to that part where Jonah gets swallowed by this fish. It’s in Verse 17. It says:

We’re talking about three days and three nights. It’s important in the Bible. Number 3: It signifies new life, new beginnings.

For instance, the first day that God created the world, what did He create?

He created light in the darkness.

And then the second day, God created the sky and the heavens.

But on Day 3, God created something amazing. He created the seas and then

He created dry land—two places by which life could be sustained. God’s earliest gift to all of us is dry ground—because that’s where you can sustain life .

And then three days later… 3 plus 3 equals 6. What did God create on the sixth day?

Adam and Eve.

He created new life. It was new beginning.

Number 3 signifies new life, new beginnings.

Time of Testing

There is another meaning of Number 3 : on the third day.

The third day describes something a little different. You’ve got new life, new beginnings, but the third day represents a time of testing. How many of you are being tested right now? You’re being tested in the water? God knows what you’re going through.

So, it’s a time of testing. For example, Abraham walked up to a mountain for three days. Why? God asked him to sacrifice his one and only son Isaac. Imagine the time of testing for Abraham:

“My only son. God asks me to sacrifice my son.”

I mean can you imagine the kind of journey that Abraham had to go through?

And Noah sent a dove out in the world to look for dry ground.Another one who was tested: Noah. Noah who had to take his family into a boat (because God told him, there would be a big storm). A nd he witnessed the destruction of civilization. After 40 days and 40 nights, the rain finally stopped.

You know how long it took for the bird to come back? Three days until the bird confirmed there was dry ground—a time of testing.

I’m glad that the bird came back. Otherwise, we won’t have birds. Because there would be only one bird left.

Jonah. He was in the belly of the whale, of the fish —for three days and three nights. A time of testing .

Jesus’ Rock-Bottom Moment

The most powerful example that we all know of is Jesus. Jesus who was in the belly of the earth, in the belly of the ground, for three days.

Actually, when you think about it, when you read Scripture, it’s not 3 days. It’s not even 72 hours when the Crucifixion happened. But the writers, because the third day was so meaningful to all of them, they just , you know, maybe rounded it off to 3 days– so that they would know this is pointing to something: Three days represent a time of testing.

And I want to deliberately say this to everybody right now because I believe that we are all in a time of testing. I mean, there are some things that happen in your life. Maybe not this week. Maybe not this year. Maybe even last year . When maybe you suffered a loss: you lost a loved one; you lost a business; you lost an opportunity.

Maybe you made some plans that did not work. How many of you had plans which have not come to life yet?

Here’s the brilliance of the message of Jonah: that while you are in a time of testing, something is happening.

We said that Number 3 signifies new life, new beginnings —and so, I’m about to declare new life, new beginnings in your life right now.

I hope and pray that you receive this blessing.

Know that in a time of testing, God is actually moving. Because after the time of testing is done, that’s when the blessing comes. There’s a blessing after the testing.

But here’s the real message: Your plans that you made this year, or maybe even last year…Maybe you invested your money in something and then you lost that money. Maybe you invested your time—in your love, in a relationship and you broke up. I don’t know what it is. Maybe you voted for a candidate in this election and then your candidate lost. I don’t know what kind of plans that you have.

Here’s the good news: Just because your plans failed you, it doesn’t mean

God’s purpose failed too. Because God still has a plan. And you know what? I’m choosing to trust God in this time of testing.

I’m choosing to trust God and to believe and declare that God can work all things for the good of those who love Him, and who are called according to Hi s purpose. Because God can do it. God can turn what went wrong into what went right. God can do it. God can use even the most vile, evil person in this world

and still make him work for the good of the Lord. Because God’s got a plan. There’s a blessing after the storm. There’s a blessing after the testing.

There are blessings right at the bottom. If you can only see the power of God that transform our life… So, whatever it is that you’re going through I want you to choose to trust God in the testing.

To choose to declare that He is a Way-maker. He makes ways whenever there is no way. He is a Promise-keeper. He will keep His promise until the end of our days. He is a Life -changer. You encounter Jesus and then your life changes. He is a Problem-solver. You can be in the middle of your storm, without any solution, and God swoops you up, gives you the answer.

He’s a Way-maker and I hope you can declare that with me right now .

Even we don’t see the plans, we believe in the One who makes the plans.

Closing Prayer

BO SANCHEZ: Every Sunday is the most important election that you will ever-ever make. Every single Sunday, we ask people to vote for the candidate that all of us agree on. That there is only one Savior who can save us.

And that’s why I invite you to vote for Jesus today. Do you believe that He is the King who died for you? Who gave His whole life to you? And who is calling you to Himself to surrender and sacrifice for Him?

If your answer is Yes, pray this prayer with me. Put your hand over your chest as a symbol that you pray with all your heart and mean every word , and say: Jesus, You are my Savior. I open my heart to You. Come in. Be my King.

Be my Lord. I will serve You for the rest of my life. Forgive me for all my sins. I receive Your eternal love. I n Jesus’ Name. Amen.
