Word 4 Today November 3, 2011

ARE YOU CONVINCED YET?

Satan always tells us that we are really not behaving in a manner that makes us worthy of being a Christian and a child of God.  Satan is known as the accuser and goes out of his way to make us doubt our salvation, which is why it is so important to know the word of God.

We must understand Gods will for our salvation, 1Timothy 2:3-4 states: “God our Savior… desires all men to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth.”   God wants us in his family and has made provision for our salvation.  He paid such a huge price for that salvation that it is totally illogical to think that after shedding His blood on the cross it wasn’t because of His love for us.  That having been justified by His grace we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life” (Titus 3:7).

PRAYER FOR TODAY

Lord, one thing we can never do is become sin-less, but we learn every day to lean and depend upon You to deliver us from evil.  We can never stop doing all the bad things we do, but over time we can get better.  Let us have the assurance that the work You began in us will be completed as planned.

THOUGHT FOR TODAY

Assurance gives us the confidence we need to move forward into eternity.
