Oh To Be Wise Meditations
Lord, am I saved? The question startles me when I hear it in conversation. This is one of the most important questions in the christian life. I like the question better stated by the jailer before Paul and Silas, what must I do to be saved? They replied, "Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved, you and your household." I can relate to that more because salvation is the main concept of the Gospel. I once was lost and now I am found. I was blind and now I see. The greatest day is the day Christ came into my life to be Lord and Savior. I was sealed with Holy Spirit till the day of redemption and I have the presence of God inside me for eternity. But wait, the Holy Spirit can be grieved away, and the spirit can be quenched in my life. My ticket to heaven can be cancelled because of my failure to pursue righteousness and truth. I do not want to get in a theological dispute like once saved always saved. But also not say, I can live in sin and grace will cover me. Lord, am I saved is a deep question that I can only have peace hearing from you on it. You have called me to wash and make myself clean by your wondrous grace. To put away the evil of my doings from before your eyes and cease to do evil. I want so badly to learn to do well, seek justice, relieve the oppressed, plead for the orphan and defend the widow. When I spread out my hands to you in prayer, do not look the other way my King. Remove the iniquity from my heart so I can hear you say to me I am saved! Lord I believe and I am baptized, save me. Whoever does not believe the Gospel will be condemned. I can feel your peace rushing over me, saying peace be still. Your plan of salvation is so wise and so amazing. Day by day, as I grow in my faith the question I am I saved slowly dissolves into a deep trusted relationship with you Jesus. You saved me.
