You know the thing of it today, when a sinner comes to the Lord, we don't treat them like Paul did when the Philippian jailer said, "What must I do to be saved?" Now, what would we say today? "You got to quit smoking; you got to quit drinking; you got to quit doing this."

That wasn't what he asked. He said, "What must I do to be saved?" And Paul told him, "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ."

Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, not, "Come, join our congregation, and stand up before the church, and say this, and we'll sprinkle you, immerse you, or whatever you want to do, our way. And if you're not in our church, then--"

That wasn't it. He said, "Just believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou and thy house shall be saved."

If you can believe for yourself, you can believe for your house also. Have enough faith in God to believe for yourself, then believe for your children also.That same faith will save your children that saved you. If you just keep praying. God will answer prayer, don't worry. Just ask Him, and believe it, and get it anchored in your heart, and just keep moving on. That's the way it's done. Yes, sir.
