Many born-again
Christians cannot recall just when they were saved. Perhaps they grew up in
a Christian home and didn’t have a dramatic conversion. Yet they love and trust
Christ. Some are every sensitive people, and Satan may try to make them doubt
their salvation by suggesting that if they can’t remember the date of their
spiritual birthday, they must not have had one.

G. Campbell Morgan
told how he dealt with this problem. He said, “The devil is only too glad
to take hold of anything whereby he may unsettle anyone.” If the devil
says to you, ‘You haven’t had a birthday,’ treat him as I do and say, ‘If I
never had one, I will have one now.’ If Satan is so very particular about a
definite date, take this one and say to God right now, ‘Here I give my all to
Thee,/ Friends and time and earthy store;/ Soul and body, Thine to be,/ Wholly
Thine forevermore.'” Jesus said “…The one who comes to Me I will
by no means cast out.” And that guarantees that any date will do.
