Don’t doubt your salvation

4 March 2024 ‘That you may know that you have eternal life.’ 1 John 5:13 NIV

You’d be surprised how many Christians actually have doubts about their salvation. So, let’s open God’s Word and settle it once and for all: ‘God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life…I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life’ (vv. 11-13 NIV). Are you trusting Christ to save you instead of depending on your own good works? Then you’re saved! Jesus said, ‘He who believes in Me has everlasting life’ (John 6:47 NKJV). Doubts always arise when you go by your feelings instead of your Bible. Your feelings are like the weather; they can constantly change. The devil will also try to tell you salvation is fine for other people, but it won’t work for you. The Bible says Satan is ‘a liar’ (John 8:44). Paul writes, ‘I know the one in whom I trust, and I am sure that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him until the day of his return’ (2 Timothy 1:12 NLT). An old prayer is, ‘I thank God for His saving and keeping power.’ You’re not keeping your salvation; your Saviour is keeping you! So when your faith feels shaky, stop and pray: “Lord Jesus, I have placed my trust in You. Your Word says that I can know I have eternal life. It’s not a matter of feeling good enough or worthy, but of believing that You’re worthy. So, I put my trust in You, choose to believe Your Word, and reject my doubts.’
