Are You Sure?
Posted: October 31, 2016
In our recent sermon series about the end times, it’s only natural for our mind to ask the question, ‘How can I be sure I have eternal life and will go to Heaven?’
I don’t know about you, but I definitely don’t want to be around when God pours out his judgment on the earth…I’d rather be in Heaven! But how can I be sure? What if I think I’m saved but I’m really not? How do I really know?
Well, I have good news for you. The Bible gives us the answer, plain and simple. If you believe in Jesus, that he died, was buried, and rose again to forgive you of your sins, and if you obey him, you HAVE eternal life. Not, “you might have eternal life” or “God may change his mind.”
“And anyone who believes in God’s Son has eternal life. Anyone who doesn’t obey the Son will never experience eternal life but remains under God’s angry judgment.”
- John 3:36 NLT
Lord, thank you that your word assures us that we have eternal life through our belief in Jesus. Thank you for the blessed hope we have as believers, and that we get to look forward to eternity with you. In Jesus' name, amen.
