“Sure, we’re totally assured, and we might quite be away from these earthly our bodies, for then we will probably be at house with the Lord.” 2 Corinthians 5:eight (NLV)
We stay in a world the place some folks discover hope, however few issues are sure. Folks change. Circumstances change. There may be all the time the query of what lies forward tomorrow and thereafter. This uncertainty usually causes us angst. There are so few issues we will depend on confidently.
However one factor we will depend on as Christians is eternity with Jesus. Sure, we could be “totally assured,” as Paul says, that after we are absent from our earthly our bodies we will probably be at house with the Lord eternally.
The saved can depend on this with absolute certainty. However being saved is greater than belonging to a church or having head information concerning the Bible and the Christian religion. It comes from a private relationship with Jesus.
“If we confess our sins, he’s devoted and simply and can forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9)
Salvation comes after we confess our sins and invite Jesus to be our Lord and Savior and stay inside us by way of the work of the Holy Spirit.
“Actually, really, I say to you, whoever hears my phrase and believes him who despatched me has everlasting life. He doesn’t come into judgment, however has handed from demise to life.” (John 5:24)
At present, as somebody who’s saved, you possibly can have full confidence that what awaits you in heaven is much better than something this earth has to supply.
Lord, thank You for the invitation to stay with You eternally. I confess my sins and give up my coronary heart and life to You once more. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit and impart to me assurance of salvation. Amen.
