IT’S INTERESTING TO NOTE THAT SOME PEOPLE SAY THAT WE REALLY DON’T KNOW IF WE ARE SAVED OR NOT; ONLY WHEN WE DIE WILL WE KNOW FOR SURE.
YOU SEE, NO ONE REALLY KNOWS IF YOU ARE SAVED OR NOT IF SALVATION DEPENDS ON YOU, BUT WHEN SALVATION DEPENDS ON JESUS CHRIST AND HIS FINISHED WORK ON THE CROSS, TO DOUBT IS TO DISHONOR HIM.
THE WORK OF SALVATION IS SOLELY HIS WORK. BECAUSE IT IS HIS WORK, OUR RESPONSE MUST BE NOTHING BUT CERTAIN; TO DOUBT IS TO INSULT THE ONE WHO DID THE WORK.
GOD’S SON WAS JUDGED SO THAT HIS PEOPLE MAY NOT BE JUDGE; THEIR SINS WERE PUNISHED IN CHRIST’S BODY ON THE CROSS. HE BORE THEIR REPROACH, THEIR SHAME AND THEIR CONDEMNATION SO THAT THEY CAN BECOME GOD’S RIGHTEOUSNESS.
“God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God” (2 Cor.5:21).
REMEMBER, IN CHRIST, YOUR SINS ARE NO LONGER RECORDED!
“God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men's sins against them.”
(2 Cor. 5:19).
IN CHRIST, WE ARE COMPLETE!
“For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and you are complete in him.”
IN CHRIST, WE ARE MADE PERFECT FOREVER!
“Because by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being sanctified” (Heb. 10:14).
IN CHRIST, YOU ARE LIKE HIM IN THIS WORLD!
“In this way, love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the Day of Judgment, because as He (Christ) is, so also we are in this world” (1 John 4:17).
