Many times in Scripture God approaches man with a question, the answer of which God Himself already knows?
To Adam, “where are you?”; to Cain, “where is your brother?”; to Jacob, “what is your name?”, etc.
Here is a question worthy of your consideration. “Do you know that you have eternal life?” The Bible teaches one can have assurance of this blessing from God (John 20:31; 1 John). In view of the uncertainties of this life, why would anyone delay in securing this assurance? God knows your situation, do you?
