Assurance of salvation

Assurance of salvation

Assurance of salvation

I John 5:13 I Have written these things to you who believe on the name of the son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life, and you may believe on the name of the Son of God.

God does want believers in Christ to be doubtful about their salvation. They have eternal life, and they should know that they have it.

How can believers be sure they are saved? What is the evidence, what are the signs John points to?

Assurance of salvation comes from the following:

By believing the testimony of God in His Word ( I John 5:9 If receive the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater, for his is the testimony of God which he has given concerning his son. Vs 11 God has given to us eternal life and this life is in his Son).

BY the inner testimony of God’s Spirit ( I John 5:10 He who believes on the Son of God has this testimony in himself. He who does believe God has made him liar, because he does believe in the record that God gave about his Son).

By relying on the promise of the forgiveness of sins (I John 1:9 if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness)
BY evidence of obedience of God ( I John 5:2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commands).

By the evidence of right living ( I John 2:29 If you know that he is righteous, you that everyone who practices righteousness is born of Him).

By the evidence of fruit of love in our lives (I John 3:18 MY little children, let us not love in the word or in tongue, but in deed and truth).

Full assurance of salvation is based on three things-

The written Word of God

The inner experience of believers

The outer evidence of way they live and love.
