ASSURANCE OF SALVATION

BY:  SADHU SUNDAR SINGH

“Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.” (John 5:24)

“Therefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things have passed away; behold, new things have come…” (2 Corinthians 5:17)

“There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death.” (Romans 8:1-2)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When you come to the Lord on His Word’s basis for salvation, He redeems you. You become His child: “But as many as received Him to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name.(John 1:12) He cleanses us from all sin: “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1John 1:9) You are no longer bound for Hell (eternal separation from God) but are on your way to Heaven. Satan will try to contest your experience with the Lord Jesus Christ. He will try to rob you of the “peace of God.” He will try to drive you back into the world of despair, doubt and defeat. But God has a message for you that will enable you to know you are saved and to maintain assurance of salvation.

BY THE WITNESS OF PERSONAL EXPERIENCE

“The one who believes in the Son of God has the witness in himself…And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given us understanding, in order that we might know Him who is true, and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.” (1John 5:10, 20)

BY THE WITNESS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

“The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God…in the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words…” (Romans 8:16, 26)

But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who indwells you. (Romans 8:11)

BY THE WITNESS OF THE WORD

“But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name: who were born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. (John 1:12-13)

“These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, in order that you may know that you have eternal life. (1John 5:13)

BY YOUR ATTITUDE TOWARD OTHER CHRISTIANS

“Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God; and whoever loves the Father loves the child born of Him. (1 John 4:5)

“We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brethren. (1 John 3:14)
