These were the words Jesus spoke to Jairus, the...

Do not be afraid; only believe.
Luke 8: 50.

These were the words Jesus spoke to Jairus, the ruler of the synagogue, when the news came that his only daughter had died. When Jairus came to Jesus to ask His help, his child was still alive. Now all hope seemed to have vanished.

When anyone brings his matter before the Lord, it is in the best hands! The Lord is faithful and has only our good in mind, as Jairus was to realise.

It may be that someone has trusted the Lord Jesus Christ for the salvation of his soul, his eternal destiny, and relied on Him, but has no assurance of salvation. The Lord’s saying: “Do not be afraid; only believe” also apply there.

We should like to recall two other sayings of the Son of God that can give assurance and peace. They are: “It is finished!” and “It is written” (John 19:30; Luke 4:4).

The first of these sayings gives us security from coming judgment; for “Christ died for our sins” (1 Corinthians 15: 3). Redemption has been accomplished; the Son of God “died for the ungodly” (Romans 5: 6). And Scripture states: “He who believes in him is not condemned” (John 3: 18).

The second saying: “It is written” gives our heart the certainty needed. It shows how Jesus Christ Himself fully trusted the written Word of God and its promises. His Word is truth. So we, too, can fully trust all that the Bible says. Whoever relies on God’s Word will never be disappointed.

If our eternal salvation is founded on Christ and His Word, we are safe.

“Do not be afraid, only believe.”

Today‘s reading: Ezekiel 1: 1 – 21 · Psalms 113; 114
