There are many events in life that we definitely remember and celebrate. I love those days in which we get together with friends, family and celebrate a time or event that happened in our life. Some of those events are of course birthdays, weddings, finding a job, buying your first house.
In a spiritual sense I think we should celebrate special spiritual events. I think of course of Christmas and Easter. What about the day you gave your life to Christ? Should we remember the day that we made the choice to become a Christian? I know that in some churches they celebrate when a person makes that choice. When I was a youth minister, every time a teen gave their life to Christ we would celebrate, have a party with a birthday cake, and even a gift (a new Bible).
On August 3rd 1986, I gave my life to Jesus Christ. I will always remember that date and celebrate it.
So, do you remember the date that you gave your life to Christ? When? Where? Who helped you make the choice? Do you celebrate your SPIRITUAL BIRTHDAY? If so, what do you do? How can remembering the event help our faith? If you can't remember the date of your spiritual birthday then can you pick a day that you like and make that day special to God? How can that help us?
