I tend to assume that all my readers are believers.
I’m honestly not sure why I assumed that. I don’t even assume that about my husband, my children, and myself.
Scripture says that narrow is the road that leads to salvation and few there are who find it (Matthew 7:13-14). Additionally, it says not everyone who calls Jesus “Lord” (ie think they are saved) will actually enter Heaven (Matthew 7:21).
So, if I’m constantly checking myself to make sure my election and calling is sure (2 Peter 1:10) why would I automatically assume that you all are on the straight and narrow road?
I’m not sure why I made that assumption.
I even tell my children that only they know if they have truly put their faith in the saving work of Christ –He who was all God and all man, God born in human flesh, the only one who can save them from the fires of Hell and bring them to redemption.
Only they know if they are faking it or not.
Only time will tell if they continue to follow hard after Christ once they are out from under my roof.
