February 1

I hope you are like me and dreaming of the day when God restores order, and we no longer have to deal with sin and the enemy. I’m confident that day is coming soon. I hope everyone is ready.

I write these daily devotionals to make Christians aware of their shortcomings and help them shore up their faith. Many walking around with the label of Christian will not make it into the Kingdom of Heaven because they’ve taken salvation for granted. We all sin, it’s in our nature, but our reaction to that occasional sin points to the truth about our salvation. Are you immediately remorseful and crushed if you make a mistake and sin? Do you grovel for forgiveness? Or, do you take it lightly as if it’s no big deal? You can’t do anything to earn salvation, but you should be eternally grateful that you don’t have to live with the consequences of sin and you do whatever you can to please God. Evaluate yourself today. I wouldn’t want you being left behind because of a false sense of security. No, you cannot lose your salvation, but the question is, did you ever have it?

Repent therefore, and turn back, that your sins may be blotted out, that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that he may send the Christ appointed for you, Jesus, whom heaven must receive until the time for restoring all the things about which God spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets long ago. Acts 3:19-21
