DOUBT: A Silent Killer

Dealing with Doubt

 

1 John 5:13

 

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.

 

LESSON

 

Our assurance of salvation rests on the testimony of God, His promise. It does not rest on the presence of spiritual fruit. It rests on God’s Word, not on man’s works. Therefore, we can be sure we “have eternal life” if we have believed on Jesus Christ.

Those who cling to the promise of eternal life but care nothing for Christ’s holiness have nothing to be assured of. Such people do not really believe. Either their professed faith’ in Christ is an utter sham, or they are simply deluded. If they did truly have their hope fixed on Christ, they would purify themselves, just as He is pure.

 

Memory Verse: Genesis 37:33
