Assurance of Salvation
Transcript of Assurance of Salvation
Four Kinds of people
“Therefore, my brothers and sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble, and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’
Are you sure or certain that you are in a state of grace (saved)?
Are you sure that when you die, you will go to heaven?
Making sure of our salvation is not a luxury for a Christian but rather a duty.
The purpose of making sure of our salvation is that we may grow and not be barren and not be paralyzed in our faith.
Why is it that the topic of assurance of salvation is difficult and yet is very important
Because there is such a thing
as FALSE assurance.
Also it is possible that you are convinced that you are in a state of grace and you are indeed in a state of grace.
Those who are not saved and they know it.
Those who are saved but don’t know it.
Those who are saved and who know it.
Those who are not saved but know they are saved.
It is possible that you are convinced that you are in a state of grace and yet you are not.
Lastly, it is important for us to tell the difference between the two.
Two ways to have a false assurance of Salvation
To have a false view of salvation or of the requirements of salvation. (doctrinal problem)
To have the accurate, proper doctrine or requirements for salvation but have a false view of our own satisfaction of those requirements. (personal problem)
By living a good life
By church membership.
By a mere profession of faith
Those who are hearers but not doers of the word of God.
Those who only desire the blessings but not the sacrifice or trials of faith.
Those who are not led by the Spirit of God.
Those who do not produce the fruit of righteousness.
2 Corinthians 13:5
Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you—unless, of course, you fail the test?
2 Corinthians 13:5
Therefore, my brothers and sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble, and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
2 Peter 1:10-11
