Our Proof of Our Salvation

English Audio Version

We’ve all said it: Show me!

Someone makes a fantastical claim, and we don’t quite see how it could be true.

Two six-year-olds are playing jacks, and one says, “I have a unicorn in my closet.”

There’s only one possible response to that: “Show me!”

A teen with a new driver’s license says, “My car will burn rubber.”

His friend says, “Show me!”

He wants proof. Plus, he feels the blood-pumping excitement that his friend’s claim might actually be true. He wants to be in the car when the tires spin and smoke pours from underneath the wheels.

1 John 4:16 says:

“So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.”

When we say, “I’m a Christian,” do people have to say, “Show me!” or is it obvious?

Have we already taken our unicorn for a walk, showing it off to everyone we meet? Have we spun the tires and burned rubber so often that we have nothing to prove?

Or do people give us the only possible response they can? “Prove it.” “Are you sure?” “Nah, not by what I’ve seen.” “Show me!”

What’s our proof? The love we show others. If people see our love, our kindness, our compassion for those in need, they won’t be surprised when we tell them we’re a Christian.

They’ll have seen our proof long before we open our mouths to profess our claim.

Our proof is in our actions that we’re truly a child of the King.

Christ loves us, but one day, he will rise and destroy those who do not follow after him.
