A farmer, carrying a bag of potatoes on his back, was asked by a skeptic, “How do you know you are saved?”
The farmer took a few steps, then dropped the bag and said, “How do I know I have dropped the bag? I have not looked around.”
“No,” replied the man. “You can tell by the lessening of the weight.”
“Yes,” said the farmer, “That is how I know I am saved. I have lost the guilty feeling of sin and sorrow, and have found peace and satisfaction in my Lord and Saviour.”
What a joy it is to know that when we received Christ as our personal Saviour, He made us a new creature, old things passed away and all things became new!
