You’ll Never Find Assurance Apart From Christ

This week I had several severe episodes of anger. Usually, such behavior causes me to doubt that I was ever genuinely saved.

In one sense, our sins should lead us to examine ourselves. If we show absolutely no evidence that Christ is transforming us into His image, perhaps we really need to question our salvation.

But Satan often uses our occasional lapses into sin as an effort to discourage us. Once we attach salvation to our performance, we deny the very heart of the Gospel. Salvation comes exclusively from the Lord Jesus Christ and His atoning work on the cross.

  1. Amen DebbieLynne! I have to consider what Paul said: “Why do I do the things I don’t want to do, and don’t do the things I want to do?” ( my paraphrase ).
    Thankfully we are being perfected day by day, but we will never attain that perfection until we are home! I hope it edifies you when I say you are a light and inspiration to many!
