An interesting thought hit me today. I was reading several blog pieces by people who were probably in their 20s to 40s about how they got saved again. They thought they were saved before, but then figured out they weren’t really saved. If I was paid a dollar for every time I heard that I’d be worth about thirty bucks.
As a young Christian you need to be fed milk. You aren’t able to handle the meat of the Word. 1 Corinthians 3:2 – I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.
So, are these people who keep on getting saved over and over again really growing in faith? I question some of the messages that ask you to question your faith (maybe not directly, but hints of it). Should I be doubting the grace of Christ in His salvation of me? Am I really going to grow this way? Or is my Christian walk going to be reduced to wondering if I’m saved over and over again? Asking myself am I on the right road, am I on the right road? And I’ll end up not ever starting down the road.
Sure, I can see a point to looking at the Word of God and then looking at your life and if they don’t match up changing things and repenting of your sins.
But, when we’re laying on our death bed are we going to be biting our nails not knowing if we’re saved or not? Not knowing if our last salvation took? I hope not.
