Things I Am Persuaded Of
fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able to perform".
am persuaded God will make good on all his promises even as Abraham
believed that God was able to make good on his promises.
1- I am Persuaded:
That God has a plan that
7:25- "Wherefore he is able to save them to the uttermost
that come unto God
by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for Them."
(1)- I was persuaded by the Spirit of God that I
was lost before I was saved.
You will never become a child of God until
you get a
knowledge of your lost condition. If you don’t think you have ever been
lost, you have never been saved!
(a)- Romans 3:10-
it is written, there is
none righteous, no not one".
(b)- Romans 3:23- "For
all have sinned and come short of the glory of God".
(2)- I was
Persuaded that God could and would save me if I repented of my sin and
ask him to save me.
Acts 3:19- "Repent ye therefore,
and be converted,
that your sins may be blotted out",
(3)- I was persuaded that God would save me If I confessed that I
believed that Jesus died for my sins and arose from the dead.
Romans 10:9-10- "That if thou shalt
confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart
that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved; For with
the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth
confession is made unto salvation".
(4)- I was
Persuaded that God would save me if and when I ask Him.
Romans 10:13- "For whosoever
shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved".
(b)- John 6:37- "All that
the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will
in no wise cast out".
2- I am
That saved people are eternally secure.
I am Persuaded
that neither death, nor life, not angels, nor principalities, nor
powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, not depth,
nor any other creature shall be able to separate us from the love of
God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord".
(2)- Then in 2-Timothy 1:12- "I
not ashamed; for I know whom I have believed; and am Persuaded that he
is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that
(3)- Another verse is 1-Peter
are kept by the
power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the
last time": If you are a
born again child of God; you can
rest on God’s promise to keep
you in his family! We know that God
deals with us as his own after we are saved. We might lose fellowship
but we will never lose our relationship with him as children of God.
I am Persuaded:
That Christ is coming again for his church which includes all that have
been born again.
if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you
unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also". Just as
sure as you live, Jesus is
coming again! We have a better place to call
home awaiting us! What a glorious day that will be when we see Jesus
face to face.
4- I am Persuaded:
That God has a purpose
for all born again believers.
Acts 22:14-15- The prophet
Saul’s eyes and
gave him instructions from the
Lord about his ministry. "And he said, The
God of our Fathers hath chosen thee, that thou shouldest know his will
and see that Just One, and shouldest hear the voice of his mouth. For
thou shalt be his witness unto all men of what thou hast seen and
heard". Also in Acts 18:4-
he reasoned in
the Synagogue every Sabbath, and Persuaded the Jews and the Greeks". Paul found the Will of
God for his life and spent the rest of his days
preaching to both Jews and Gentiles about the saving grace of God.
5- I am Persuaded:
That God expects Christians to live a separated life.
are Persuaded better things of you, And things that accompany
salvation". Ungodly living brings
reproach to the name of Christ
scripture tells us that God expects better things of us. If we keep up
old habits and do things that dishonor Christ after we are saved, God
will bring chastisement and scripture tells us that if there is no
chastisement in a persons life who is sinning against the Lord that you
can rest assure that they are not really saved.
2 Corinthians 5:17- "Therefore if
any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away,
behold, all things are become new".
Hebrews 12:8- "But
if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye
bastards, and not sons".
Each of us needs to be
Persuaded that he or she knows Christ as their
Saviour and to be Persuaded that they are kept by the power of God and
will come again to receive us unto himself. Every believer also needs
to be Persuaded to serve God as long as they live. If you are lacking
in any of these categories; you need to do business with God today and
get in line with His will. 1 John 1:9- "If we confess our sins, he is faithful
and just to forgive our sins, and to cleanse us from all
