IS A SAVED PERSON SURE OF HIS SALVATION?

IS A SAVED PERSON SURE OF HIS SALVATION?

Many good men of whose salvation there can be no question, have at times had doubts, and have suffered acute distress. In some cases the doubts have a physical origin resulting from a gloomy disposition. In others, they arise from too much introspection. In others again, because their conscience reminds them of sins not yet overcome. You must remember that you are not saved because of your feelings, but because Christ died for you. If you have sincerely repented and are trusting entirely in Christ to save you, and are living in his strength a godly life, you have the right to thank God for saving you, in spite of your doubts. If you cannot take his word that those who come to him through Christ have eternal life, you should ask him to forgive you for doubting him. You may be quite sure that he will keep his promise, whether you have the joy of assurance or not. ---- G. Sandison

What is regeneration?

What is regeneration?

Regeneration is being born again, and is the work of the Holy Spirit, by which we experience a change of heart. It is perhaps better expressed as being "born anew from above" (John 3:7), being "awakened" (Ephesians 2:1). Christ coming into the heart (Galatians 4:19), "renewing of the mind" (Romans 12:2), the "purifying" (Titus 3:5). Man is not the author of his own regeneration. The change consists in the recovery of the moral image of God upon the heart, leading us to love Him supremely and serve Him as our highest end. It is wholly the work of the Holy Spirit. The change is in the heart and the will--in our moral and spiritual faculties. The natural faculties, being dominated by the will, while they may resist for a time, ultimately follow the change. The evidences of regeneration are conviction of sin, sorrow and repentance, faith, love and devotion to God. In regeneration we receive from God, whereas in conversion we turn to God.------ G.

Luke 9:57

As they were walking along the road, a man said to him, "I will follow you wherever you go." --Luke 9:57

THINK ABOUT IT:

Let this verse be your heart's cry. Follow Jesus, no matter the cost. It may not always be easy, but there will always be peace when Jesus is ordering your steps.
