Where Does God Live Today?

Our God is exceedingly great.You only have to look up at the stars at night to be awed by His greatness and wisdom. Yet though His magnificence fills us with wonder, God can seem far away from us, way up in the heavens. As we go about our daily lives, and sometimes even when we pray, God can feel out of reach. At times we might even find ourselves asking, “God, where are You?” ...

Do You Taste God in the Word?

We need to eat food to sustain our physical life and to keep ourselves healthy. But just because we have to eat doesn’t mean it’s a tedious chore. In fact, eating is enjoyable to us, especially when the food is tasty. Similarly, the Bible tells us that God’s Word sustains us and keeps us spiritually healthy. But how do we feel about reading it? Is our time in God’s Word a dry, tedious...

What Is Calling on the Name of the Lord?

Romans 10:13 says, “Whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”But this verse doesn’t just apply to when we first believed in the Lord and got saved. Actually, the Bible shows us that God’s people throughout the centuries regularly called on the name of the Lord. In this post we’ll see how we can be saved constantly by calling on the name of the Lord Jesus, and how this...

What Do I Do When I Sin after Being Saved?

When we first repented to God and received Jesus Christ as our Saviour, we were forgiven of all our sins, and peace flooded our hearts. And God’s Word assures us that our salvation is for all eternity and can never be undone. But although we’re saved, we know from our personal experience this doesn’t mean we’re immune to sin. We still sin after experiencing salvation, despite our best efforts. So...

I’m Saved! What Comes Next?

You’re not alone if you’ve ever asked yourself this question. Many of us didn’t know what came next after we received the Lord Jesus Christ as our Saviour. We surely appreciate the tremendous steps God took to redeem us and impart His eternal life into us so that we could be born again. But believing in Jesus Christ is just the beginning of our Christian life. So much more lies...

How to Maintain the Joy of Our Salvation

When the love of the Lord Jesus first touched us and we repented and confessed His name, a deep joy we’d never known before filled our hearts. What a joy it was to be forgiven and born again! God wants all His children to continue to rejoice in His wonderful salvation for their whole lives. This should be the normal experience of every believer, as we see in 1 Peter 1:8: “You exult with joy...

The Key to Experiencing Jesus Christ in Your Everyday Life

The day we get saved is a wonderful, momentous day. However, after experiencing the initial joy of salvation, it’s not unusual to wonder how to continue experiencing the Lord Jesus. You may have questions like How can I know Jesus personally? How can I experience Jesus in my life? Is being forgiven and saved from God’s judgment all there is to the Christian life? Some may try different ways...

3 Problems That Can Only Be Solved by the Blood of Jesus

Previously, we discussed how as believers in Jesus Christ, we can be fully assured that we’re really saved and can never lose our salvation—it’s eternally secure. Since we can’t lose our salvation, some might wonder if this means it doesn’t matter how we live after we’re saved. Are we free to do whatever we want? After all, nothing can change our salvation. It’s important to know...

The Danger of Thinking You Can Lose Your Salvation

In a previous post, we discussed one of the biggest questions we may have as Christians: Can we lose our salvation? We saw the clear and definite assurance the Bible gives us that once we believe in Christ and receive Him as our Saviour, we’re saved eternally. We can’t lose our salvation. But here’s another question: Does it make any difference whether we know we can’t lose our...

Can You Lose Your Salvation?

Have you ever wondered if you can lose your salvation? Or if you can be “unsaved” if you do something wrong or sin? It’s extremely important for us believers to be clear about several fundamental matters. One of these is having the assurance that we’re saved once we believe in Christ. Another fundamental matter we must be clear about is the security of our salvation. Just how secure is our...
