How to Know That You Have Eternal Life!
Man is sinful and separated from God: “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)
Jesus paid the penalty for our sin: “But God demonstrates His love for us, in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)
Salvation is a free gift: “For it is by grace you have been saves, through faith, and this not of yourselves, it is the gift of God, not by works, so that no one can boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9)
Salvation is received by faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord: “Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on him.” (John 3:36)
You can have assurance of salvation: “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 does not have life.” (1 John 5:11-12)
Prayer of Commitment:
Dear Father, I acknowledge that I am a sinner, separated from You and lost without You. On the basis of Christ’s death for me on the cross, I ask You to forgive my sin and to accept me as Your child. I thank You that You are faithful and I now belong to You. Amen.
“EVERYONE WHO CALLS ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED.” (Romans 10:13)
