5 Assurances for Christians
- Assurance of Salvation
The following five verses of Scripture will equip you for your first encounters with the enemy. His first approach is often to cast doubt on the work God has done in your heart. Although you won’t hear his audible voice, he will whisper something like this in your mind:
Assurance of Salvation
“You don’t think you are saved and your sins are forgiven just be believing and receiving Christ? Surely that is not enough!”
What will your answer be?
Your only hope of successfully resisting such an attack is to rely on God’s Word.
What does God say about the matter?
This is the the important thing. The first memory passage, 1 John 5:11-12 is entitled Assurance of Salvation and says:
And this is the testimony: 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 life1 John 5:11-12
When the truth of 1 John 5:11-12 is written in your heart, you can use it every time a doubt about your salvation arises.
