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.

    Dr. Graham is so right! Many years ago, I was surrounded by people who led me to believe that if I didn’t go to a church where people had intense emotional expressions, that I wasn’t saved. It took me many years to realize that emotions do not save us, but only Christ Jesus!

    There is no other substitute for accepting Christ as your personal Lord and Savior. Your may find a temporary peace and joy in other ways but the only true way for eternal salvation is by personally accepting Christ and the events at Calvary .
