“Your life shall hang in doubt before you; day and night you shall be worried, and have no assurance of your life.”
This text describes the man or woman without Christ. Every man must eventually stand before his Maker. On her deathbed, the unrepentant woman will worry about the hereafter. Their lives will someday “hang in doubt” and fear will plague their thoughts. Unbelievers have “no assurance of [eternal] life”.
Assurance of salvation is available to anyone who wants it...
1st John 5.13 NASU
“But as many as received Him [Jesus Christ], to them He gave the right
John 1.12 NASU
We may have assurance. We may know we have eternal life. It is apparently as easy as asking. Our home in heaven is secured by the simple act of believing “in the name of the Son of God” and receiving His gracious offer of a personal relationship.
Undoubtedly, many will claim that while they have doubts about Jesus, they do not suffer “day and night” with worry about their future with God. They have no assurance of eternal life and they do not care. The hereafter is of no present concern. Skeptics admit no need of Christianity or any other religious system. Their lives appear full and relatively happy. They presume heaven, if there is such a place, will take care of itself.
I must speak up so one day when they need assurance, they might have it.
