A 12 year old boy was saved at a revival meeting. Later, his friends questioned him about it.
One said, “Did you see a vision?” Another said, “Did you hear God speak?” The boy answered all of these questions with a simple ‘no’.
“Well, how did you know you were saved?” they asked. The boy replied, “It’s like when you catch a fish, you can’t see the fish or hear the fish; you just feel him tugging on your line: I just felt God tugging on my heart.”
Romans 8:16 (NLV): “For the Holy Spirit speaks to us and tells our spirit that we are children of God.”

“You could not be saved through any effort of your own, but now that you are saved it is necessary for you to put forward every effort you can to glorify Him.” - Harry Ironside.
