Am I Really Saved?
Daily Bible Reading – Romans 5-8
Today’s Key Passage – Romans 8:28-39
Have you ever worried about whether or not you are really saved? Have you ever thought that the gift of salvation might not be available for you? For all of us, it is easy to be deceived by our pasts. It is easy to fall into the trap of believing we are not good enough. It is easy to believe we have not done enough to be saved. It is easy to believe that we are not worthy of this gift. How foolish are these thoughts? How foolish we can be when we start to believe the lies. How foolish we can be when we allow doubt to creep into our minds. You hear this so often that it has almost become a cliché, but God loves us. Think about His sacrifice for us. He gave up His only Son to die for us, and He did this when we were still sinners!
I often think about the love I have for my daughter. I would not give her up for anything in the world, but that is exactly what God did for us. That level of love for us is almost beyond human comprehension. Since we know this to be true, do we not also know that because His love for us is so great, nothing can EVER separate us from that love. We are eternally bonded to God though our Lord Jesus Christ. If God gave up His only Son for us, how much more will He surely give us? Everything we need WILL be provided for us by our Father in Heaven. Our salvation is not a “maybe” thing or a “sometimes” thing. It is a definite gift to each of us who live in Christ Jesus. He is interceding for us. He is our advocate against Satan. He gives us the power to live a Christ-like life today, and gives us the gift of eternal life.
When I was a kid, all of the neighborhood kids would come together to play football. We would always choose teams, and there was always one kid that everyone wanted on their team because he was the best player. You knew that if he were on your team, you would win the game. Through Christ Jesus, we are now on God’s team. He is our best player, and He is always by our side. Through Him, we know we will always win. We can never fail. We can never be separated from Him. His love for us guarantees our salvation. Rejoice today! Do not fear. Do not worry about “if” you are saved. YOU ARE! God is the faithful parent that never lies and always does exactly what He says. He will not let us down. He can be trusted absolutely. Accept His gift, and share the truth of His gift with others. Any time doubt starts to creep in, focus on His gift and His love for YOU. You were predetermined by God to be one of His chosen children. Praise Him today for His faithfulness.
