Did You Want to Change Your Mind? (Romans 8:38-39)

The other evening, I was asked a question by a colleague. “After you became a Christian, was there ever a time after that when you regretted the decision and wanted to change your mind?”

I pondered this question for a few moments. After I made the decision, I did face hostility from some family members. I faced friends who viewed my decision with skepticism, even incredulity. But all this never caused me to want to change my mind. I was completely persuaded by the Holy Spirit of the truth of Jesus Christ.

For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8:38-39

It took me a long time for me to realize the depth of my need for a Savior. But I first needed to acknowledge that I was a sinner. There was nothing good within me. I needed to repent of my sins and ask Jesus Christ for forgiveness. I needed to ask Him to be my Lord and Savior. And I could only do this if I completely trusted and believed in His ability to save me. I had the assurance of salvation that only a true God could give.

No, I have never wanted to change my mind!

Love and trust the Lord; seek His will in your life.
