The title of her blog inspired this post and begs a question: What is one thing I (we) know for sure? Let’s exclude pat answers such as, “I’m saved” or “I know I’m going to heaven” of “I know God loves me” or “God’s going to work out everything for our good”. Those are all givens and we can all claim them. But, what’s one thing beyond the obvious that you know for sure.
For me a genuine answer is going to take some thought and reflection. I don’t know right off the bat. Do you?
What can we claim as truth when we get into a discussion with a non-believer? How do we defend what we believe if we don’t know what we believe? I think we’d be shocked if we asked some friends at church what they believe. Could they tell us what they believe is truth?
I think it’s a challenge for all believers, it is for me, to know what we believe is truth. 1st Peter 3:15 admonishes us to,
Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that is in you.
Are we prepared to do that? Can we name at least one thing we know for sure?
