Certainty of your salvation
Do you know your salvation with absolute certainty?
Do you know that you know that your salvation is assured?
If Christ is in you, then you are a child of God. It is impossible for it to change. You may feel like you are not saved. Emotions are not the measure of your salvation. Fear, guilt, shame, regret, self-pity, anger, and lack of self-control can cause loss of fellowship with God but not the loss of salvation. You cannot fix your sin nature. You are born with a sin nature. Only Jesus Christ can fix your sin nature.
When you believe and receive Christ by your will, you are marked in HIM with a seal. This mark is the promised Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is a deposit guaranteeing your inheritance and redemption.
And this is that testimony (that evidence): God gave us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.
He who possesses the Son has that life; he who does not possess the Son of God does not have that life.
I write this to you who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) the name of the Son of God [in the peculiar services and blessings conferred by Him on men], so that you may know [with settled and absolute knowledge] that you [already] have life, yes, eternal life. 1 John 5:11-13
Jesus Christ has given you victory over sin and death. HIS resurrection defeated death. You are no longer a slave to sin. As you recognize your identity in Christ, as you recognize you are a child of God, as you recognize you are a brother or sister of Jesus Christ, as you wear the crown of righteousness which Jesus Christ gives you, your focus on trying to fix your sin goes away and the peace of God enters which transcends all understanding. This peace is a peace which transforms your mind and heart. This peace stills the storms of life while you are in a tornado.
Nothing can separate you from the love of God. He will never leave you nor forsake you. You have been sealed with the promises of God through HIS SPIRIT living in you.
