Love Worth Finding Daily Devotional 16th September 2022
TOPIC: Do You Now Believe?
“He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.” -1 John 5:12
I’ve heard it said that if you cannot name the time and the place you were saved, you’re not saved. Have you ever heard that? There’s just one thing wrong with that—it’s not in the Bible. The Bible never tells you to look back to past experiences for proof of your salvation. It does not say, “He who believed has eternal life.” It says, “He who believes.”
It doesn’t matter what you’ve done in the past. If you’re not believing on Jesus today, you’re not saved. And if you are believing on Jesus today, you did believe on Jesus in the past. It’s impossible to presently believe on Him without having believed on Him in the past.
Indeed, there was a time. Indeed, there was a place. But, if you’re not believing on Jesus now, whatever you call the past time and the place, there’s something wrong with it. The big question is: are you believing Jesus now? If you have the time and the place, wonderful. But if you don’t, that doesn’t mean you’re not saved. If you’re trusting Jesus right now, you are saved.
- Are you more prone to rely on past or present evidence as assurance of your salvation?
- What evidence is there in your life right now that you are trusting Jesus?
Write out the current fruit in your life that displays your trust in Jesus. Be honest with yourself. If the fruit is not there, respond to God, seeking salvation in Him today.
