· Many people want assurance of salvation to register in their feelings. This is a common mistake which often has a disastrous outcome. God never said that your emotions would be the test of your salvation. Assurance is not dependent on your psyche, but on His eternal Word.
· Although the human soul is a masterpiece of creation, it was made to fluctuate with experience, registering ups and downs, being glad or being sad, according to your state of mind, even after you are saved.
· Saved people do not have ever smiling faces, like plastic masks, but they have entered God’s original plan for their lives and have no need to consult their emotions to determine whether they are saved or not.
· So, salvation is embedded in the rock of the eternal Word. Jesus stated: “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away” (Matthew 24:35, NIV). This is the cleft in the rock to which you must flee whenever Satan attacks you with doubts.
You are saved because the Word of God says you are. (John 1,12 + 5,24) Whatever I feel, my conviction remains unshakable. “Redeemed how I love to proclaim it…” God bless you.
