ARE YOU SURE

thinking over feeling

There is a passage in the New Testament that I believe is one of the most terrifying in the Bible. It comes from the lips of Jesus at the end of the Sermon on the Mount.

We tend to think of the Sermon on the Mount as a positive proclamation by our Lord. After all, it is in the Sermon on the Mount that He gives the Beatitudes:

“Blessed are the poor in spirit.… Blessed are those who mourn.… Blessed are the meek …,” and so on (Matt. 5:3–12). Because of the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus has a reputation as a preacher who accents the positive rather than the negative.

But we often overlook the climax of that sermon, where Jesus says:

  “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’ ” (Matt. 7:21–23)

Are you really sure about your salvation?

A study was done in the 1980’s that showed in Pentecostal churches, over 80% of the people confessing to be Christians, did so after a sermon on the Second Coming of the Lord, and would they be ready.

So an altar call was given and because of the fear of being left behind they came forward.

Some would argue that most were not Christians as the whole gospel of truth was not conveyed, they did not know the whole message, thus they may have only been buying fire insurance and not salvation.

So again I ask, are you sure of your salvation?

Pray for Tommy, she has PTSD on her medical records and it is hurting her job search.

Pray for Melissa, she got married again, husband number 5 at 36 years old, married only a month and wondering if she made a mistake. (and marriage counseling isn’t doing any good.)

Ray K, healing for his heart.
