Unit 2: Food for thought
Food for thought
Why does this heartbreaking uncertainty exist among so many who genuinely want to know God and have sought Him for years? I am persuaded personally that for many people this lack of assurance is due simply to misinformation regarding who God is, the true meaning of the crucifixion and the resurrection, and what is involved in receiving Jesus Christ as Savior.
Could it be that you yourself are still unsure of your relationship with God even though you may have been reared in a Christian environment and have “believed” in Him and in his Son for years? If you were to die this very moment, do you know for sure where you would spend eternity? Do you have the assurance right now that the Lord Jesus is in your life and that you are a child of God?
Or perhaps you have only recently received Christ and are still not sure that anything has really happened—you have no assurance of your salvation and have serious misgivings about where you will go when you die. If you are among the vast multitude still looking for God, the next few moments could well be the most important ones of your life.
