You Can Know You Are A Christian
You can have assurance of salvation. You can know you will go to Heaven, to be with Jesus, when you die.
God intends for you to settle it, by believing His Word. The devil is the one who tempts you to question God's Word. But, if God said it, you can depend on it.
BELIEVE ON JESUS
ACTS 16:31 NKJ
31 So they said, "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household."
Is your confidence in Jesus Christ and His ability to save you, or in yourself and your ability to miss it? To believe in Him means to trust Him and rely on Him.
JOHN 1:12 NKJ
12 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:
If you receive Jesus, by inviting Him in -- He will give you new life, and you will become a child of God.
ROMANS 8:16 NKJ
16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,
In addition to the written Word, God's Holy Spirit also witnesses inside us, in our spirit, that we are children of God. He gives us assurance the Bible is true and dependable.
1 JOHN 5:11-13 NKJ
11 And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.
12 He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
13 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.
If you have received Jesus, you have eternal life now!
Verse 13 says these things were written that you may know that you have eternal life. Do not wait till you die to find out. You can and should know it now.
ROMANS 6:23 NKJ
23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Eternal life is a gift. It is in Christ Jesus. When you receive Him, you receive eternal life. It is a gift -- not something you have to work for to earn or deserve.
A NEW CREATION
2 CORINTHIANS 5:17 NKJ
17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
The only way to get "in Christ," is to be saved by grace through faith according to Ephesians 2:8-10. The way to be saved is told in Romans 10:
ROMANS 10:9-10 NKJ
9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
10 For with the heart one believes to righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made to salvation.
ROMANS 10:13 NKJ
13 For "whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
YOU ARE SAFE WITH JESUS
JOHN 6:37 NKJ
37 "All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out.
Jesus promised not to reject you. He will receive you!
JOHN 10:28-29 NKJ
28 "And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.
29 "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.
Do not worry about the devil stealing you away from Jesus. Jesus will keep you. Just trust Him.
ROMANS 8:38-39 NKJ
38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come,
39 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.
Nothing can separate you from Jesus Christ and His love for you. Only you could do that, by rejecting Jesus.
OPEN THE DOOR
REVELATION 3:20 NKJ
20 "Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.
Jesus offers this promise to everyone. If you will "open the door" of your heart to Him, He will come in to your life. The only "if's" have to do with what you do.
If you have done your part -- calling on Jesus, believing on Him, and receiving Him -- you can be sure the Lord has done His part.
Take God's written Word, the Bible, as your evidence. You can trust God to do what He said He would.
