Assurance is to be sure of something that is certain and true.
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. The assurance of salvation is critical for every believer. First John five verse thirteen reminds us that the Bible was written in order that we KNOW we have eternal life. Yet, for some believers, that truth is just not sealed in their hearts. If you have friends who have placed their trust in Christ but they remain uncertain about the promise of eternal life, a wonderful Bible verse to share with them is John six verse forty-seven. In fact, if you have your Bible handy, turn to the verse and say to them, “This is what Jesus says.” Then ask them to read it out loud. “Very truly I tell you, the one who believes has eternal life.” That verse is very clear that he or she who trusts in Christ HAS eternal life, which in the Bible always means Heaven.
I hope this helps you as you share life with your friends today. Visit ShareLife.today for more free Gospel resources.
