Saturday, Dec. 17
Yesterday I let you know what I don’t know. Well, there are a few other things I don’t know, too. Now I’ll tell you what I do know. The plan of redemption worked to perfection. I know that not only by observing the facts, but because I serve a perfect God. Not only do I believe that it worked; it was the only way it could possibly work. If there had been a way that the Son of God could have avoided the cross, it would have happened. I know my redemption is assured, that all of God’s promises will come to pass in due time, and that I will live forever in the presence of a loving God. I know God’s judgments are fair and that all the results, both in heaven and in hell, will reflect God’s goodness. I know that God is sovereign. I know that I am chosen not by any merit of my own, but because of a merciful and gracious God. I know that there will be multitudes of people in hell, but God is not only just, he is merciful and gracious. I know that evil will eventually disappear from the universe and God will be both victorious and glorified. There are lots of things I don’t know about God, but I know enough to trust and worship him. I know that God chose me for a purpose and that I need to bear fruit for him. I know that I fail more than I succeed, but God loves me anyhow. There’s more, but I spare you.
