How do I know I am saved?

October 21st, 2012

Last night my wife, kids and I were talking about being assured of our salvation. We talked about verses from the Bible that assure us we are saved and going to spend eternity with God.

Here are the verses we looked at…

John 3:16 – For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life

John 1:12 – Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God

1 John 5:13 – I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.

Romans 10:13 – Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.

Hebrews 9:28 – Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.

These verses tell us that because of my faith and trust in Jesus that we are saved. We are adopted into God’s eternal family  because of what Jesus has done for us.

It was a good discussion and a good reminder to have verses memorised about this subject.

God Bless,
