Assurance of salvation

If you were to die today? Do you know where you will be? Even if you do know, are you sure about it? 

Questions we generally get…

  • Is it true that am I going to receive eternal life, after I die?
  • What is to be done to be saved?

Like wise there are so many questions for which we don’t have any answer.

Are you sure you will go to Heaven when you die ?

Is there a clear answer?

Do you really not know about what you already have and what will you receive?

Lets get the answer.

1 John 5: 11, 12  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; and he who does not have the Son of God has not life.

Assurance of Salvation

This is God’s testimony which itself

gives us the Assurance of Salvation.

God has already given us

 eternal life as a

 free gift.

Questions Answered

Who gives eternal life?

 God

Where is the eternal life found?

 In Son of God.

Who possesses eternal life?

 The one who believe in Son of God

 “JESUS CHRIST”

Why?

John 3:16″For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son,

so that

everyone who believes in him

 will not perish but have

eternal life.

How has God shown that he loves you?

Romans 5: 8

But God demonstrates

 his own love for us in this:

 While we were still sinners,

Christ died for us.

How it will come ?

John 20:31

But these are written so that

you may continue to believe that

Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing in him you will have life

 by the power of his name.

What is the result of men’s sinfulness?

Result of sin

  “But your sins separate you from your God.
The Lord sees your sins, and he turns away from you.” Isaiah 59:2

Sin means things we do wrong. Because we all sin, God cannot connect with us.

 Romans 6:23 “When people sin, they earn what sin pays– death.”

The punishment of sin is death.  Why? 
Because God is perfect and cannot be with any sin.

What provision has God made to bring men to himself?

God didn’t leave us alone in our sin but he made the provision to bring us close to him and that is we all know,

1 Peter 3:18 – “Christ himself died for you. And that one death paid for your sins. He was not guilty, but he died for people who are guilty. He did this to bring you all to God.”

Do you know the results of hearing and believing in the Son of God?

 John 5 : 24 “Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me

 has eternal life and

 will not be judged but

 has crossed over from death to life.”

This scripture tells us what we have, what will be in our future and what was our past….

Present :- We have eternal life.

Future :- we will not be judged.

Past :- we have already passed

 from death to life.

Lets look at,

What God has          us?

 What  are the __________ to fulfill the promise?

 What will be the _______ after fulfillment of condition?

Lets look at,

What God has promised  us?

 What  are the conditions to fulfill the promise?

 What will be the results after fulfillment of condition?

What else takes place when a person receives Christ?

2 Corinthians 5:17

 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ,

he is a new creation;

old things have passed away;

behold, all things have become new.”

New LIfe

Lets have the life which is in  the son of God – Jesus Christ
