I was talking on the phone with my sister today and she was telling me about some people getting saved today at our home church in Oklahoma. One of the guys is in his 30s and thought he was saved as a child, but was having some doubts and really wanted to nail it down and just know for sure. I was so proud of him because I know how hard that is for an adult to do. As we were talking some more, I was telling her that I have mixed feelings about end of service invitations. On the one hand, I think it gives people a great opportunity to make a public decision for Christ, on the other hand, I feel like it can produce a lot of doubt. At least for me. I can't tell you how many times during invitation that I have wondered if I am REALLY saved and going to Heaven. Doubt is a horrible feeling.
I got saved when I was 9 years old and I have obviously changed a lot since then, so sometimes it's hard to remember that though my faith isn't like that of a child anymore, I did TRULY accept Christ into my heart and make a decision to live for Him. Have I failed Him everyday since then? Of course. Thankfully we are covered by grace and He forgives us of our sins when we truly repent.
You HAVE to watch this video and really listen to the words. Lauren has a BEAUTIFUL voice and it will speak right to you, I just know it!
Do you ever have doubts about your salvation? How do you deal with that?
