Confident Faith

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs.

Colossians 3:16, nkjv

My parents were so confident in who God is and what God has said through His Word that it genuinely never crossed my mind, nor to my knowledge the minds of my siblings, to doubt God! When I was a child, I told my mother I wanted to know God personally for myself, and she lovingly gave me the instructions about how to approach Him. So I followed her instructions and went to the designated place at Calvary, to an altar of wood called the cross, and took my sacrificial Lamb. The knife of my sin and guilt was responsible for His death, and His shed blood made atonement for me. When I walked away from that altar, not only had I been reminded of my sinful condition, but I had the deep peace and assurance that my sins were forgiven! I was no longer separated from God but accepted by Him, because my sacrifice was the Lamb of God who is my Creator who became my Savior!

What a blessing to have parents who are people of confident faith. What a blessing to be a parent with confident faith like that!
