New Living Translation

Reader Story:”It’s Like I’m Sitting Across the Kitchen Table from Jesus”

What joy to hear how the NLT is bringing people closer to Jesus. So close it’s like they’re sitting across the table from him. Read these thoughts from our friend Virgie as she shares what the NLT means to her.

I love the NLT! It was introduced to me back in 2010 when I recommitted my life back to Christ. I had been a fallen believer for almost 20 years, before I started hearing the voice of the Lord profoundly whispering in my ear, that it was time to turn back to my first Love, Jesus

At that time, I had fallen so hard I didn’t think I was worthy of His unconditional love, grace and mercy but He profoundly showed me one morning in the book of Psalms 147:3, “He heals the broken-hearted and bandages their wounds.” NLT

I took this scripture and ran with it, holding it like a baton, everything that was broken inside me had been healed and He still binds up my wounds.

The NLT speaks to me, like I’m sitting across the kitchen table from Jesus, I love the NLT.
