You Can Know for Sure
If the Lord were to come right now, would you know for sure, without a doubt you would go to Heaven? Christians are always trying to help people answer that question with an exclamation point based on God’s Word. God says you can know for sure (1 John 5:13). If you were already a Christian and Heaven bound what would you do if you knew you had only a week to live? How would you spend those final hours? Jesus knew that the time had come for Him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved His own who were in the world, He now showed them the full extent of his love (John 13:1) When Jesus had one week to live, He chose to wash His disciples’ feet. He did the work of a common slave. He ministered to those who were closest to Him. He washed their feet (John 13), He comforted them (John 14), He encouraged them (John 15-16), prayed for them (John 17), and then He died for them. He spent the last week of His life fulfilling His purpose; He spent the last week of His life being a servant. The Bible tells us “…the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many” (Matthew 20:28).
