How can we ever reach other people with the Gospel if we have no confidence ourselves?
I love passages like Ephesians 1:7, “In whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace”. Notice it did not say “ACCORDING TO HOW GOOD WE ARE”. While we Christians are to live a life of good works, our salvation is based on the blood of Christ! Ephesians 1:4 says, “According as He has chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before Him in love”. The only way we can be “blameless” is to trust in Jesus and His blood. The Bible says we are immersed INTO Christ. (Romans 6:3, 4; Galatians 3:27)
It’s tragic that there are some in the church who have no confidence in their eternal salvation! Even though Jesus went to the cross so they could be. `I certainly hope YOU are not in this number.
