Johannine Salvation Exercise (Test #2, Part #2)
My Salvation Through Jesus Christ
I know that I am saved. I am saved because Jesus died on the cross for my sins (Matthew 27:32-66). I accepted Him into my life and am saved. I am saved by faith through the grace of God, (Ephesians 2:8 “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God”). I am “A Born again Christian” (John 3:1-21) and know in my heart that I am saved (Romans 10:10). I know that my works do not get me to Heaven, (Ephesians 2:9) however I also love Christ and want to do my best for Him (John 14:15). Knowing in my heart that I am saved by faith and grace through Jesus Christ, after accepting His gift that He gave on the cross, I do not doubt my Salvation. There are groups of people who feel that since we are saved through grace, faith, and the blood of Jesus that we cannot lose our Salvation. Other groups of Christians however believe that you can lose your Salvation ( “Value your Salvation with fear and trembling” Philippians 2:12, NIV)The conclusion I have come to is based on how I am saved. My prayer to God is that I would never do anything to question whether or not I am saved, that I can be a living example of who Christ is through Sanctification, (1 Timothy 4:5) to live for Him, and to always be sure of where I am going when I die. As long as I ask God’s forgiveness for my sins daily, rely on Him, and live for Him based on faith, grace, and forgiveness I don’t question where eternity is for me after death.
