His Spirit Witness
Do doubts and fears plague your faith life? Is there self condemnation for sins of the past? of the present? and fear of the future? God’s promise is we do not have to base our faith only on feelings because it is His Holy Spirit who bears witness that we are children of God.
The Spirit himself bears witness to our spirit that we are God’s children. Romans 8:16
When the enemy fills your mind with doubt – are you sure you are a child of God? You are not so good to merit His salvation, your faith is not deep enough for you to faithfully follow Him so it is OK if you occassionaly doubt His Word. You answer is Roman 8:16. It is the Spirit that bears witness in my heart – not anyone’s word but God’s. It is His Holy Spirit who is in me who gives me the assurance of my salvation and makes me worthy by His grace to merit salvation full and free. As God’s child I am assured His promises are yes and amen to those of us who believe. Let’s learn from Dr John Piper.
Let’s from the working of the Holy Spirit in us, cry “Abba Father”, hate sin, and realise that salvation comes from Jesus Christ who has made our spiritual adoption possible. Amen.
