Eternal Life: Rest Assured

Description

Our heavenly Father’s desire is that we would have a sense of security about our life in Him. He wants us to live certain of our everlasting relationship with Him through Jesus.

Romans 3:21-24

Babies have the wonderful ability to fall asleep in the midst of great commotion. They close their eyes, untroubled by worry or fear. Our heavenly Father’s desire is that we would have the same sense of security about our life in Him. He wants us to live certain of our everlasting relationship with Him through Jesus.

Have you ever noticed that when babies become toddlers, fear begins to enter their minds? Many cry over small disturbances or become unwilling to leave a parent’s side. They seem unable to accept their mom or dad’s reassurance that everything is fine. Much of the time, their situation has not changed   at all—they have the same safety and protection they had as babies—but they’ve lost their sense of assurance. They will not believe the one who knows the truth: their parent.

This is just what some of us do. We fail to believe the assurances given by our heavenly Father. At the moment of salvation, we entered into a permanent relationship with God through Jesus and received eternal life. But at times, we have trouble trusting that it’s true.

Certainty about salvation doesn’t come from applying human logic. It is a matter of faith. Do we believe what God tells us or don’t we? Assurance grows as we believe God’s Word and no longer rely on our own thinking. First John 5:13 says, “These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life.” Believe the God-breathed Scripture and rejoice.
