Assurance of Salvation

12 07 2012

Biblical assurance of salvation is a beautiful thing and something God wants His children to have (1 Jn 5:12-13). Here are four things that can give us confidence that we belong to God:

1. Faith in Christ today: It’s not  did you put your faith in Christ some time in the past- Rather, are you trusting Him right now? If you did put your faith in Christ some time in the past, then you will be trusting Him now.

2. The Presence of God’s Spirit: Believer’s are indwelled with the Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit prompts us to believe the right things about God and to produce fruit.

3. Obedience to God’s Word: Do you delight to obey God?

4. A Pattern of Growth Over Time: It’s not about the snapshots in your life where you mess up, but is the overall “movie” of your life one that is depicting you maturing more and more into the image of Christ?

*The above were taking from Mike McKinley’s book Am I really a Christian?
