Is My Faith Strong Enough?

   Am I going to heaven?  Some Christians mistakenly look inward for the answer.  Have I really given my life to God?  Have I done enough for God?  Is God on the throne of my heart?    Instead of asking, “Is my faith strong enough,” we should ask, “What did Jesus do for me?”  Jesus paid for our sins in full.  God says he forgave ALL of our sins while we were still dead in sin and incapable of doing any good works...
