Theme For David Jeremiah Devotional May 3 2021 – Be Sure!
But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.
Recommended Reading: 1 John 5:13
Most biblically-based preachers and teachers avail themselves of insights gained from the original languages of the Bible. But one preacher, known for his facility with Greek and Hebrew, told his congregation, “My greatest concern is not that you don’t understand Greek or Hebrew, it’s that you don’t understand English!”
When the Bible says something over and over, in plain English, and is still not believed, there is a problem deeper than language. For instance, the Bible says in many verses and in many ways, that those who place their faith in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, can be assured of eternal life. The apostle John said explicitly that he wrote in order that his readers might know that they can have eternal life through faith in Christ (John 3:16; 20:31; 1 John 5:13). Apparently, some still doubted their salvation. Can a Christian be assured of his or her salvation? Yes!
If you have doubts about your salvation, continue to read and meditate on the verses written to assure you. They were written that you might know and be sure!
Let us not seek any other ground of assurance than God’s own testimony.
