Assurance of Salvation

Sometimes we can become discouraged and begin to doubt our salvation because it is not something that we can see or always feel. We need to guard ourselves against discouragement by remembering and believing God’s Word and what it says about us.

Your Sins Are Forgiven

How can our sins be forgiven?

Why should we be joyful?

You Have Accepted Salvation by Faith – Keep Believing!

How are we made right with God?

What should we do when we doubt?

You Have a New Life in God!

What happened when you became a Christian?

Who should we be led by in our new lives?

What kind of lifestyle leads us away from God’s Kingdom?

What happens when our lives are controlled by the Holy Spirit?

What happened to our sinful natures when we became Christians?

Ask a Friend

How do you know that you are saved?

What can you do to guard your heart and mind against doubt and discouragement?

Application

Let’s take the following steps to strengthen our faith:

Worship – rejoice in God for your salvation
Pray – tell God how you feel and pray in faith
Scripture – read, memorize and meditate on God’s Word, and speak it over your life
Church and Connect Group – enjoy fellowship with other Christians, be encouraged
Water baptism – get baptized (if you haven’t yet)
