‘I would rather believe in God and die finding out that I was right rather than die not believing and discover I was wrong’. I don’t need to take out insurance in the hope that God exists, I know it in my heart for that is where He resides by His Spirit. I have that blessed assurance, a guarantee written in my heart and underwritten by my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. He is the one who makes it possible to be at one with God when we are separated from Him because of our sins. If we don’t have a Saviour we remain unsaved and destined for destruction because we cannot save ourselves. We cannot save ourselves yet many think that salvation is gained by their good deeds. Nothing could be further from the truth for it says in Scripture
Ephesians 2:8-9 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast
If you wish to trust in another that is entirely up to you but there is only one way to be saved and that is through Jesus Christ who died and took upon himself our sins, yours and mine. If we believe in our hearts that Jesus died for us and repent of our sins we will be saved. Jesus is our gift from God, he is the one who makes us at one with God, he atones for us in other words. Take that step of faith and have that assurance from God who loves you.
