I heard something last night that truly blessed me and I've been meditating on it. I hope it blesses you too.

The text was Romans 5:10
"For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. "

He was addressing the all too common problem of Christians not being secure in their salvation. Constantly fearing one is not truly saved even though one has done all the Word commands and is living in obedience and love to the best of their ability.

He emphasized that even when we were living completely lost lives, not even trying to obey and serve God, actually being His enemies, He gave His only begotten Son's life to reconcile us to Himself. Think about that. We weren't even trying!

Then he addressed the rest of the passage...where it is talking about us after we have accepted His gift of reconciliation, being saved by Jesus' sacrifice and now we are trying to live in obedience to His Word.

He powerfully pointed out that it is a surety that we are now saved by Christ's life, because that was the whole purpose of it all. That when we were His enemies He gave His life to reconcile us to Himself and so, once we have responded, are loving Him and are trying to walk in the light with Him, how could He not save us? Why would He do that? That would defeat His entire plan!

He loved us and gave Himself for us while we were vile sinners. He loves us now that we have submitted our lives to Him in true repentance for our sins and love and obey Him as best we can. He did all this to save us. He wants us saved. If He did all that for us when we didn't even want Him, why would He turn us away now that we love and seek Him with all our hearts?

If we have truly repented and taken Him as our Savior and are following Him with all our hearts in love and obedience, it is time to truly BELIEVE what He says and rest in the surety that we are safe in His loving arms. He did all the work at the cross. Ours is only to believe, love and obey. His grace is sufficient for all our misses and failures. All we need do is repent when the Spirit convicts us, resolve to try harder, and then snuggle deep into His loving arms and let Him refresh us. He does not want to crush us. He wants to nurture our growth and our relationship with Him, for our own good.
