Confidence in Christ



Have you had questions or doubts about your forgiveness and eternal life? Your salvation? Have you heard a voice from within say something like, "You don't think you are saved and your sins forgiven just by believing, do you? You must obey the commandments!" How do you respond? 

It's important to realize these kinds of questions come from the enemy who even confronted Jesus our Lord? He tempted Christ three times in the wilderness following His baptism. He even used Scripture verses to mislead Jesus. So how can we stand against such fierce attacks? Jesus used the Word of God and we can too. By memorizing Bible verses we can be prepared when Satan asks questions like the ones above. This is a good one. "And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life" (1 John 5:11-12). 

God knew we could never keep all the commandments and that is why He provided a way of salvation through Jesus Christ. "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord" (Romans 6:23). Jesus said, "There will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over nine-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent" Luke 15:7).

Prayer: Thank you, Father, for the gift of Jesus and our salvation. Empower us to stand confidently against Satan. Help us to be more like Jesus. In His name we pray, Amen.
