Blessed Assurance

We don’t have to wonder where we will spend eternity. Belief in Jesus guarantees a future with Him

1 John 5:9-13

People fall into one of four categories. Which one applies to you? 

1. We are saved and we know it.

2. We think we are saved, but we’re not. 

3. We don’t claim to be saved.

4. We’re not saved but would like to be. 

As today’s passage shows, God wants us to know beyond a shadow of a doubt that we will spend eternity in His presence (1 John 5:13). Salvation is His deliverance from all the effects of sin, and it is available to whoever trusts in Jesus Christ. Do you have that kind of certainty? Unless you’re already confident that heaven is your eternal destination, I urge you to settle the matter now. 

First, realize that our Father desires salvation for all people (1 Timothy 2:3-4), and He has provided the way through His Son (John 3:16). We are saved when we believe in Jesus Christ and confess Him before men (Romans 10:9-10). 

God is faithful to keep His promises. If you trust in Jesus as your personal Savior, the Father will forgive all your sins and welcome you into His family (John 1:12)—without regard to merit or worth on your part. He freely gives eternal life to all who believe in His Son. Will you receive it?
