Many so-called Christians believe that they have salvation and that they can speak judgment over non-believers. Many street preachers have that attitude. They speak to other people as though they themselves are God, as though they can bring judgment on the world.
If we truly follow Jesus Christ and we are His disciples then we will be humble and know that nobody has any guarantee of salvation. We must each work out our own salvation with fear and trembling. There is no guarantee. Nobody can boast and say that they have a ticket to heaven.
We have to follow and obey Jesus Christ and stay with Him until the very end. We have to endure with Him to win the prize of eternal life. Jesus warned that many will strive hard to find the narrow door and not be able.
It is arrogant to boast about your salvation before you have won that final prize of eternal life. We will only know when we get to the end of the line and Jesus approves of us.
Let us not boast before the time but let us serve Jesus Christ in such a way that in the end He will be pleased with us and welcome us into His kingdom and say to us:"Well done faithful servant, enter into the rest of your Master."
May Jesus bless you.
