“This is what God told us: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life, but whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.” 1 John 5:11-12 (NCV)
          It is not uncommon for believers of Christ to struggle with thoughts like, “maybe I’m just not good enough to be a Christian”, or “nothing really happened to me when I gave my life to Jesus, nothing has really changed”. But Christianity is more than jumping off a cliff in the dark hoping there is something to land on. It is a personal relationship with the God of the universe. The assurance of your relationship with God is based on the authority of the Bible, God’s Word, not on how you feel.
          It is like flying in an airplane. You may be flying completely upside down in a fog and feel like you are right-side up. Only the instrument panel can tell you the truth. A pilot must trust his instrument panel rather than his senses. The same is true for a Christian. We must trust, that is—have faith, in the Word of God. God’s Word is our instrument panel and we rely upon it and not our feelings.
          So when the enemy comes and whispers to you, “you’re not good enough”, or “you’ll never measure up”; don’t argue with him. In fact, you can say. “Your right, I’m not good enough, and I’ll never measure up. Jesus is my goodness and He has measured up for me. I belong to Him. If you have a problem with me, I’d suggest you take it up with my Master. Now I’m done talking to you, goodbye.”
          If you have the Son, that’s enough.
