||Accepting Jesus as Savior
||The people you know
|The size of house you live in
||The number of cars you own
|The grades you make in school
||The kind of clothes you wear
||Your height and weight

"Accepting Jesus as Savior." To accept Jesus as
Savior also means that a person is "dependent" on Jesus,
"trusts" in Jesus, and has "faith" in Jesus.|
