HOW DO YOU KNOW?
"These words spake his
parents, because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already,
that if any man did confess that he was Christ, he should be put out of
the synagogue. Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him. Then
again called they the man that was blind, and said unto him, Give God the
praise: we know that this man is a sinner. He answered and said, Whether
he be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was
blind, now I see."
Many people have asked me, "How do you know for sure that Jesus Loves you
and cares about you? How do you know for sure that when you die you
will be with Jesus for Eternity?"
I join with the blind man and say, "One thing I know, that, whereas I was
blind, now I see". I have always been able to see with my eyes, but
I was blind for so many years in my heart. I hated every person and
didnít trust anyone. I had no desire to live because I never saw any
love being demonstrated to anyone.
I canít explain how I know these things in my heart to satisfy the
doubting person. However, if you are really seeking to know Jesus,
then I can tell you that once you give your heart and life completely to
Jesus, you will know and never doubt again.
I know that Jesus Loves me. He does not turn His Love for us off and
on like we do for our family and friends. Even when we hurt Him, and
all of us hurt Him in some way every day of our life, He still Loves us
and is waiting with open Arms and a longing Heart for us to return to Him.
Do you know for sure that you are going to Heaven?
