Can a Christian Have Assurance of Salvation?           January 10, 2022

The first verse of I John 5 answers the question. The apostle John and 10 more others had the answer. When Jesus lifted His eyes to heaven’s throne where God was sitting, He prayed, “While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Your Name. Those whom you gave Me I have kept; and none of them is lost….” John 17:12.  

Jesus testified like the Shepherd in an earlier time and place.  “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.  And I give them eternal life, and they shall perish; neither shall anyone snatch out of My hand.”  Almighty God, “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 10:27-29.

How can this be?  Here is the path to salvation

(1) With heart and soul – “Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ (Messiah) is born (has) been of God….”  I John 5:1.

(2)  Repent of all sins, hatred, and evils.  Acts of the Apostles 2:36-39; and 3:19-20.

(3)  Place faith in God with whole heart into Jesus Christ.  Romans 10: 9a, 10-11, 17.       

Genuine Christianity changes one's heart and lifestyle; loving true 1st John 4:7-12; 5:1; 5:1 and living right.  The Holy Spirit teaches behavior, 2nd Corinthians 5:17-21; obeying our Lord and Savior 1st John 5:2-3; Gospel John 15:9-15.

A new Christian will grow and grow seeking to walk with our Lord—loving and enjoying Him knowing our Lord is always near.
