A little boy was in a revival meeting. The pastor preached from John 5:24, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth My word, and believeth on Him that sent Me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.”
On the way home, the little fellow said the devil began to whisper to him saying, “You’re not saved. You don’t feel just right. You don’t deserve it.” He sat on the couch and remembered the verse. “Verily, Verily, I say unto you.” That means truly, truly, I say unto you. He started talking to himself, Jesus says he that heareth His word…I heard it…and believeth on Him that sent me...I believe….hath everlasting life…I have everlasting life. The word says so.
It seemed to the boy that Satan was under the couch. He took the Bible and stuck it under the couch and said, “Devil, read it for yourself!” From that moment on, the doubt left.
“These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God” (1 John 5:13).
