Based on discussion I'm having elsewhere, I was wondering on this question. How do we truly know when we're saved? How do we know if our heart is truly right? If our motives were right? Did we just repeat a prayer, feel conviction, were we truly sorry for sins, etc.?
So the question is, what led you to Christ...not who, or how, or when, but "what/why". Down in your heart, in your thoughts, what was going on? Was it an ongoing thought or battle, or just an on the moment emotional response?
Starting with my own, I wanted to accept Him because I decided I'd made enough mess of my life and had proven to myself that I couldn't guide myself into anything right. I wanted God to make me a caring person and make something of the remainder of my life so that I suppose in a way I might atone for all the bad decisions I'd made. I was tired of being a selfish and vindictive person who only wanted what I wanted, and instead I wanted to be changed into a kinder person, more loving, more discerning, more giving...wiser. I decided to give the decision making in my life up to God because all I could do on my own was mess it up, and mess up the lives of those around me.
God came looking for me which is more than I ever deserved. I asked Him why He wanted me. He said I chose.
Do you think God knows beforehand what our choice will be?
