This week, while reading Charles Haddon Spurgeon’s sermon, “Prayer Certified of Success,” I found this quote stood out.
“But how am I to know that I am saved?” saith one.
God saith, “He that believeth and is baptised, shall be saved.” Hast thou believed, hast thou been baptised? If so, thou art saved. How know I that? On the best evidence in all the world: God says thou art – dost thou want any evidence but that?
“I want to feel this.”
Feel! Are thy feelings better than God’s witness? Wilt thou make God a liar by asking more signs and tokens than His sure word of testimony? I have no evidence this day that I dare trust in concerning my salvation but this, that I rest on Christ alone with all my heart, and soul, and strength.
