We have now spent almost two weeks examining the importance of knowing that we are saved. If you are without Christ, you now have an opportunity to be saved.
It is not my desire to place doubts in the heart of a genuine Christian, but just maybe God placed this devotional for you to read today, to awaken in you the authentic call of the Holy Spirit to cause you to truly examine your relationship with God. My counsel to you is the same as Paul’s. Examine yourself! Test yourself! Ask God to reveal the truth to your heart, because if you are not saved, you certainly can be saved!
Most who read this devotional have made a profession of faith. Therefore, if you are saved you can grow in confidence.
As I have grown older and increased in my understanding of Scripture, I find that I need to go back again and again. As Jeremiah says, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” (Jeremiah 17:9).
I need to examine and test my own life. Each time I do, I see God’s grace at work. Although I often fail miserably, I see how God is at work in mylife. This is why I love today’s verse; I know God is not finished with me yet. How about you?
