Do you doubt your salvation? You’re not alone. Many Christ-followers experience times when their faith wavers and the enemy whispers accusations that cause them to doubt if they are really saved. Just as a slow but steady drip can damage over time, repeated trials and temptations can cause cracks in our spiritual armor. We stumble, as though the ground beneath us were crumbling, although it is our steps that are uncertain; the foundation of our faith is as sure as it ever was.
The book of 1 John is a powerful antidote for doubting and wavering in our faith. He makes it clear that his purpose in writing is that we know that we have eternal life. We aren’t meant to live in a perpetual state of doubt.
“These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life” (1 John 5:13).
Don’t let the enemy steal the joy of your salvation and keep you distracted. Examine your faith (as Paul tells us in 2 Corinthians 13:5), take God at His Word, and settle it once and for all.
