God’s Assurance of Salvation
“I give them Eternal Life, and they will never die, and no one can steal them out of My Hand.” – Jesus – John 10:28
If you have accepted Christ Jesus as your Savior and Lord, you can expect the promise of salvation in eternity future, and enjoy the Assurance of Salvation right now! The Bible contains promises that can help you to know, beyond any question, that you have an eternal home in heaven, and that you are one of God’s children. At times you may question if you are truly saved. The devil may cause you to doubt whether you really belong to God. If you mess up, relapse, or have unconfessed sin, you may not feel saved. But salvation is not based on feelings; it is based on facts. Consider what takes place the moment we trust Christ as our Savior:
1. We are forgiven of all our sins. “Blessed are they whose sins are forgiven, whose wrongs are pardoned.” Romans 4:7
2. We are given the gift of Eternal Life. “The payment for sin is death; but God gives us the Eternal Life forever in Christ Jesus our Lord.” – Romans 6:23
3. We are no longer condemned. “I tell you the truth, whoever hears what I say and believes in the One who sent Me has Eternal Life. That person will not be judged guilty but has already left death and entered life.” – Jesus – John 5:24
4. We are redeemed through Christ’s blood. “The Son paid for our sins, and in him we have forgiveness.” Colossians 1:14
5. We are placed in Christ and made new. “We know that our body—the tent we live in here on earth—will be destroyed; but when that happens, God will have a house for us, a house not made by human hands; instead, it will be a home in heaven that will last forever.” 2 Corinthians 5:1
6. We are sealed by the Holy Spirit. “Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of Redemption.” – Eph 4.30
7. Our names are written in the BOOK OF LIFE. “Nothing unclean and no one who does shameful things or tells lies will ever go into it. Only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will enter the city.” Revelation 21:27
8. God will never cast us out of His presence. “The Father gives Me the people who are mine. Every one of them will come to Me, and I will always accept them.” Jn 6:37
9. Nothing can separate us from the love of God. “ I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38–39
Learning these facts about your salvation will help you to gain assurance. Your potential for Christ will be unlimited if you have the hope of Eternal Life and the confidence that you will never come under condemnation.
God doesn’t want you to hope that you are saved or think that you are saved. God wants you to KNOW that you are saved and have Eternal Life. That is one of the main reasons the Bible was written. “These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have Eternal Life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.” 1 John 5:13
