Assurance of Salvation
Can you be sure that you know God personally?
You can know exactly where you stand with God!
Your spiritual condition with God affects all this life, and all eternity.
Your relationship with God is the most important relationship in life.
This is a matter of Life or Death!
God's Word tells you...
"These things I have written to you Who 'Faith' in the Name of the Son of God, in order that you may KNOW that you have Eternal Life." - I John 5:13
Note: Many English translations of the Bible read "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved." Such mis-translations come from the inadequacy of the English language to properly reflect the Greek meaning. The word in Greek is pisteuo, which means "faith". To most people, "belief" means a "mental acceptance". But mental acceptance, and mental acceptance alone, will NOT lead to Salvation. "Faith" is acting upon what we Believe.
"Faithing God" is like taking a "leap" into the arms of God for our Salvation. That means, we must totally Trust Jesus to Save us. Thus, we "Faith" Him!
God Wants you to Know that you have Eternal Life.
"God has given us Eternal Life, and this Life is in His Son. He who has the Son has Life; He who does not have the Son of God does not have Life. I write these things to you who "Faith" in the name of the Son of God so that you may Know that you have Eternal Life" - I John 5:11-13
God wants you to have His full Joy in your life.
"God has given us Eternal Life, and this Life is in His Son. He who has the Son has Life; He who does not have the Son of God does not have Life. I write these things to you who "Faith" in the name of the Son of God so that you may Know that you have Eternal Life"- I John 5:11-13
God wants you to have His full Joy in your life.
Jesus told us... "Keep My Commandments, Abide in My Love...these things I have spoken to you, that My Joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full." - John 15:10-11
Forgiveness and Salvation are "Gifts" from God.
He "Gives Life" to all who Repent and Open their Hearts to Him.
Personal Check Up...
"Test yourself to see if your Faith is really genuine...Examine yourself. If you can not tell that Jesus Christ is in you, you have failed the test." - II Corinthians. 13:15 NLT
So, Are you "A Child of God" or "Satan's kid"?
Have you taken The Two Essential Steps to God?
That is...have you made a Conscious Choice to Escape Satan's Control
and Come to Jesus for Salvation and Life?
If: "No", God's Word says you are still "in your sin", and you are still
Separated from God and His Salvation.
If: "Yes", You are now a "Child of God" with all His Promises.
Hear God's Word...
God is unchanging!
"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever." - Hebrews 13:8
Count on what God says!
"God is not a man that He should lie." - Numbers 23:19
Your Salvation is God's Gift!
"The Gift of God is Eternal Life through Jesus Christ our Lord." - Romans 6:23
"For by Grace (which is Love you don't deserve) you have been Saved, through Faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the Gift of God; NOT as a result of works, so that no one should boast." - Eph. 2:8-9.
You have Eternal Life Now!
"And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father's hand." - John 10:28-29
"Whoever 'Faiths' in Him will not perish but will have Eternal Life." - John 3:16
Christ Flows in your Life!
He promises to be an artesian spring within you.
"Whoever Drinks of the Water I give him shall never Thirst, The Water that I give shall become in him an ever flowing well Springing up to Eternal Life." - John 4:14
Christ Lives In You!
Jesus wants to live His Resurrected Life in you and through you. NOTE: You cannot live the Christian life! God does not require it of you. "You can't do it, God never said you could. He will. He has always said he would."Major Ian Thomas. Just allow Jesus to be Himself in you daily. Begin the day with Him in charge, and yield every word and action to Him. Watch His miracles.
"Christ in you, is the Hope of Glory." - Colosians 1:27
"Glory" = the Hope of you becoming the person God intended and created you to be.
You are a New Person!
"Therefore, if any man is In Christ, he is a New Creature; the Old Things have passed away;
Look, New Things have come." - II Cor. 5:17
Since you are a Child of God...
Welcome to His Family!
Beginning today you are a part of Brothers and Sisters around our world who have made this same Commitment. They have been Forgiven by Jesus through His Cross, and Saved through His Resurrection by their Faith. You are now an important part of His Family. The Relationship matter is settled for Time and Eternity. God is Your Father..."no one can snatch you from His Hand."
Why not determine right now that you will not go around "messing up" God's Family Name.
You are God's Temple on Earth!
"Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives within you and was given to you by God; you do not belong to yourself." - I Corinthians 6:19 NLT
No Doubt About Your Salvation
Your Salvation is real! God does not want you to be in doubt about the most important thing in your life. Your Salvation is not a matter of emotions, but they may accompany it. You Know you are Saved because you Know that Jesus Died for your sins, Forgave you, and you Know that the Risen Lord Jesus has Come into your Heart. These are Facts! Your Assurance rests upon God's Faithfulness, and His Promises.
Likely, you will feel Forgiven, Cleansed, and Free from Condemnation. The result is a deep inner Peace, abiding Joy, and confidence that your future is in God's hands. You Know that He loves you, and He has all of this life and Eternity in His hands. This is Assurance!
You are now God's Adopted Child...He is your Father. The Bible is your Authority, and the Holy Spirit is with you as the inner Witness that this is so. Your Peace within agrees. Doubts are settled.
Thank the Lord For your Salvation and New Life.
And Now, Since You Know that you Belong to God...
Jesus Invites you to "Fellowship" with Him. John 1:7
This Fellowship "Walk" is necessary for your Spiritual Growth, not to remain Saved. By your "Works you will be Known", for "we are Created for Good Works".
The Scripture says...
"We are God's Masterpiece, He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so that we can do the Good Works He has planned for us long ago." - Ephesians 2:10 NLT
Find a Church Home where the Word of God is Preached and Taught, and where you can Grow in your Christian Walk. As God's Spirit leads your heart, join that church and be obedient to Jesus by following Him in New Testament Baptism. Take your public stand for Jesus!
Begin every day with your Lord in PRAYER. Keep your daily appointment with Him faithfully. Study His WORD as you seek His Guidance and Direction. Give Him time to speak to you. WORSHIP God in your Church, in your Home, and in every area of your life. FELLOWSHIP with other members of God's Family. Share, Study, and Pray with them. WITNESS to folks about Jesus. Tell them what He has done for you. OBEY the Word of God and be led by His Spirit.
Just allow Jesus be Himself in and through your life.
The Fruit of the Spirit is a Picture of Jesus.
And, Fruit in us verifies His work in our lives.
We can't produce the Fruit on our own.
"The Fruit of His Spirit" is
"Live by the Spirit, Walk by the Spirit."
*The "Tree of Life" for every Christian
produces this Fruit...The Fruit of Jesus.
