I AM SECURE IN THE LORD JESUS
When we become believers of our Lord Jesus Christ, we become His children. And as His children, we are forever be secured in Him. 1 Corinthians 1:8 says, "He will keep you strong to the end so that you will be free from all the blame on the day when our Lord Jesus Christ returns." One of the questions many Christians ask is, "Does God will accept me at the end? or "Am I good enough to make it in heaven?" The answer to this question is "Yes!" As believers, God will accept us in the end. We need to believe that we are good enough to get to heaven. The reason is that our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for our sins, will sustain us until the end. It will not be our own strength that will take us to heaven, but it will be our Lord's strength.
When we were hopeless in our sin, Jesus came into our lives and saved us with His life. He will not give up on us now that we are saved. Else, Jesus would waste His death on the cross. One of the reasons many Christians doubt their security in Jesus is because of their sin in their lives. They think that they lose their security in Christ every time they sin, and when they are good, they retain their security. As true believers in Christ Jesus, we need to reject this idea because it is not what the Bible teaches. The Bible teaches that Jesus will keep us strong or firm to the end. Through the power of the Holy Spirit who lives in us, God will continue to change our hearts and teach us His ways. Our Lord Jesus will continue to forgive and convict us of our sin.
This morning, let us remind ourselves that we are eternally secure in our Lord Jesus. We have the confidence that we will make it to heaven no matter what happens in this world because Jesus will never give up on us. Let us say these words to ourselves, "I am secured in Christ Jesus!" Jesus is our eternal savior; therefore, He will sustain us until the end.
Ask yourself these questions: Do I believe that I am secure in my Lord Jesus Christ? What does the Bible say about my security in my Lord Jesus Christ? Do I still doubt my security in my Lord Jesus Christ?
Write down all the worries you are facing today and lift them up to God.
Father in Heaven, I am thankful that I am secure in my Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you, Jesus, that you are sustaining me to the end. Please help me reject the lies in my head that I am not secure in you. I am forever yours, and I am looking for that day to see you face to face and be with you forever. In the meantime, please help me continue to trust in you and live my life for you. In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
