Perhaps you know when your life of faith really started. There may have been something that finally enabled you to put your trust in Jesus, and things have been different ever since.
I remember someone once asking a gathering of us where we were saved. Some had an answer, others didn’t, but we were all wrong. If our salvation takes place anywhere, it is in the heart and mind of God.
Of course, he went on to explain where he was coming from, and teaching us that salvation is a transaction, and it is the bit at the God end that is the one that enables the person end. That underwrites, guarantees and enables the person end. For life.
Our lives are safe and saved in God.
You might think that gives us freedom not to care about the consequences of our actions – and some in the past have taught this – but it is rubbish. That is not how being connected to God works. It gives us freedom to do the right things that honour God, because there is no condemnation for those who are in, remaining in, Christ Jesus. Like Paul say, without the Spirit of God, you simply can’t pull it off. So, with the Spirit of God, you can’t fail. Can’t fail to acknowledge, and bear witness to, his presence in our weakness.
