The Finished Work

By   •   December 18   •   Topics:

A person is saved by trusting in the finished work of Christ on the cross, and not by bodily sensations and religious ecstasy. But you will say, “What about feeling? Is there no place in saving faith for feeling?” Certainly, there is room for feeling in saving faith. But we are not saved by it. Whatever feeling there may be is the result of saving faith, but feeling never saved a single soul. Love is feeling. Joy is feeling. Inward peace is feeling. Love for others is a feeling. Concern for the lost is a feeling. But these feelings are not conversion. The one experience that you can look for and expect is the experience of believing in Christ.

Prayer for the day

Thank You, Lord, for Your gift of redemption, which does not fluctuate like my feelings.

    Believing in Christ is the best feeling……where I feel this love will never fail me one fore sake me. Thank you Jesus.

  5. Brian C. Ceroky says:

    Feelings lead us astray, mainly when we are alone. There is no better feeling than to have all known sin confessed, and to be in Church, singing Praise Songs, in the company of hundreds of saved people, FEELING Joyful!

  6. Brenda Lance says:

    Thank you Jesus for saving me and others who come to you.

  7. Segun says:

    You are right man of GOD; most of the time we glorify our feelings at the expense of our redemption experience.

  8. Paula Crawley says:

    I remember the moment of my ” conversion” I was reading Matt 11 :28-30 I had been praying for the ability to forgive someone because the bitterness was eating me alive. Suddenly I realized I felt sorry for the object of my hatred. .The next moment I was flooded with emotion. I wish I could say I never have those feelings toward people who “wrong me or those I love” but it is easier to let GOD have them now
