“That ye may know.” These words from 1 John 5:13 were refreshed in my mind this week, and what a blessing they are! I don’t have to wonder. Don’t have to guess. Don’t have to wishfully hope. I can know that I have eternal life. Indeed, it’s a humbling truth, because that assurance has nothing to do with me. It’s all because of God’s amazing grace and perfect love that provided His Son’s sacrifice for my sins. I guess I write about this today because of a recent visit. I was called to the bedside of someone I did not know who, according to the doctors, is dying from cancer. This person had asked for a preacher, and through a mutual acquaintance, they contacted me. As we talked, the conversation obviously turned to eternity. There was no assurance, only confusion. I was allowed to go through the simple explanation of the gospel and the blessed assurance we can have through Christ. Sadly, the confusion continued. Gospel tracts were left, and a return visit was planned. I left with a heavy heart on one hand, but on the other hand I left thankful for the power of God’s word and the assurance it can give. My prayer is that this person receives the assurance spoken of in 1 John 5:13. So today, think about this: there are many things we don’t know, can’t know, and never will know. But we can know we have eternal life! Isn’t that what matters most? I trust you have that assurance yourself; if not, contact me. If so, be sure to share it with someone this week!
