Jesus died on Friday and on Sunday His grave was empty. That is a fact. Because of that point in history we have some truth that we can stand on. Let me take just a few minutes to pattern out the strength of our salvation so that we know that we know we saved and forgiven.
Those are the facts. Nothing changes the facts. John 14:6 tells us that there is no other way to heaven and to be saved but through Jesus. If that is narrow minded, so be it. Those facts make my salvation secure. What an awesome thing it is that we know that we know.
Step a little further with me. If we know that we are saved, it will help us put some more padding with what we believe by knowing what God says about it. What does God say?
We know that we know Jesus and that God knows us by holding to the truth that God gives. This is not some feeling we get or emotion we have. This is the truth of God that we can hold on to and that holds on to us.
Even better than an anchor for a ship, the hope that God gives us and the truth that God has spoken tells us (and we must believe) that we know that we know because God has secured our salvation. It came through the life and dead of God's son, Jesus. It comes as we trust God to take care of our spiritual lives. Nothing can change those facts. Believe it. We know that we know because God said it. It is settled!
That you God for salvation that we know that we know. Period.
