Can I really be sure? That is a question I’ve heard, even asked, many times, concerning salvation. Maybe you are asking it right now. If you are, then read on, because I’ve got some really great news for you!

The answer to this age-old theological question is a definitive “yes”. You see, our salvation is not based upon anything that we do, but rather on the all-sufficient sacrifice that Jesus made on a cross some 2,000 years ago. God’s gracious gift of eternal life is available to all people and made ours through faith. The Apostle Paul puts it this way, “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God” (Ephesians 2:8, NIV). “By grace, through faith!” “A gift!” That is really great news!

Still, so many people find themselves wondering, fearfully doubting if they are truly saved. They take their eyes off Jesus, his cross and empty tomb. Instead, they look at their own sins and shortcomings. And when they do, they become hopeless.

But, God does not want us to be hopeless or to fear. He assures us that Jesus has done everything necessary for our salvation. By the power of his Holy Spirit, he gives us faith in Christ’s victory over sin.

So, what do we do now? We do nothing to contribute to what God has already done. We are forgiven. We are saved. We are free. But we can do this. We can follow Jesus with reckless abandon. We can love others and serve them. And we can share the good news with those who so desperately need to hear it. May God bless us abundantly as we do these things!
