Do you live each day with this knowledge of salvation, that eternal life is in your possession? It can give you an entirely different outlook, one which is filled with joy, strengthened by the knowledge that nothing can separate you from Christ. Meet each day with prayer and devotion; this will help orient your outlook so that your focus is eternal. Then, go live incarnate; meaning, live your life knowing Christ dwells within you and He has already overcome the devil with all his attacks and lies.
Also, have you passed this sure knowledge of eternal life on to your family? How about your friends and neighbors? We are each called to go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing and teaching. This begins in our household and extends outward. Often, we assume people know their salvation is secure, but when asked, most people will give a response of hope based upon works rather than certainty because of Christ.
I cannot stress this enough, it is of utmost importance that we daily ask ourselves and then our children and others: “Will you go to heaven.” If the answer is anything other than “YES” make sure you pass on the surety we have because of Christ Jesus. Point to Jesus, not to works, for He did it all for us and gave us the gift of salvation for free through His Word and Sacrament. Ask this question daily until there is no doubt left, chase Satan away with the knowledge of Christ and go live with that laser-like focus. When we know our beginning and are sure of our end, then the middle becomes a joyful journey no matter what the obstacle.
