Often negative thoughts about God creep into my mind and cause me to doubt my salvation.
At times, negative thoughts about God creep into my mind and cause me to doubt my salvation. I love God so why do these thoughts come in? Am I really saved? Do I have a non-working faith? Why can’t I stop these thoughts?
Controlling My Thoughts
I was reading Romans 1 this morning, and verse 16 really struck me.
16For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. (ESV)
Am I ashamed of the gospel? Do I take every opportunity to share it when it needs to be shared? Does everyone at work, and everyone I meet, know that I’m a Christian? I need to be more aware of Who I stand for, and make sure that when the day comes, I can stand before the throne and say with confidence that I fully and openly represented the gospel.
