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.

Find peace with God today.

Prayer for the day

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

    Precious Heavenly Father, Thank you for loving me so much that you led me decades ago to believe in your son Jesus as my Lord and Savior! I praise you for your daily blessings and answers to many prayers! I now please ask you that the Holy Spirit will convict my friends and family members that aren’t believers in Jesus. May they repent of their sins today and know they’ll have an eternal home with you in Heaven. And, what a glorious day that will be! Because of the wonderful shed blood of Jesus, Carol G. Amen.
