Our Birth Certificate


And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.
1 John 5:11

For nearly a century, Martha Mossberg celebrated her birthday on August 11. Then she needed her birth certificate for a cruise, and imagine her surprise when she saw the real date of her birth—August 4, 1917. She was a week older than she thought. When she turned 100 earlier this year, she celebrated on the right day. Her birth certificate left no doubt.

As Christians, we have a birth certificate. The moment we trust Christ as Savior, our names are recorded in the Lamb’s Book of Life, and the whole Word of God becomes a personal birth certificate—our document assuring us of salvation.

The Lord doesn’t want His children worrying about whether they are truly His children—whether they have really been born again. When we believe on the Lord Jesus, we are saved. The Lord Jesus rose again so we needn’t toss and turn at night worried about our eternal destination. If you have doubts about your salvation, don’t depend on your own understanding. Open your birth certificate and read: “This is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.”

  1. Surprisingly curryNcode the day I celebrated my Birthday was also in error until I was Adopted, it was on the 27th of December until I was 13 but it should have been the 26th of December, it seems I was born at Midnight and it’s always the day before not the day after 12am, yes the Moon is under my feet or so they say.

    But very True God’s Birth Certificate for us as recorded in The Lamb’s Book of Life never changes, if our Faith is in our Heart and not just in our thinking which will be shown by our Actions and Words, than our Salvation is Eternal, yes we are to Work out our Salvation but not meaning work for it.
