How May I Know That I am Saved?

The question I want to answer today is, "How may I know that I am saved?"

It's obvious that this is a question that is clearly answered in the Bible. The Bible gives a specific answer and yet many people mistake the answer with a wrong answer. They mistake the true answer for a wrong answer. What must you do to be saved is easily answered by repentance from sin and faith and belief in Jesus Christ.

As one Bible student has said: "All spirit wounded and convicted sinners must be urged to look away from themselves and in a penitent faith fix their gaze and their soul on Christ alone for mercy as He's offered in the gospel."

There are many false gospels today and that's why it's important to know what the true gospel is. So how may one know that he is saved?

A person may say well to be saved you have to believe in Jesus Christ; I believe in Jesus Christ, therefore I am saved. Now that's a logical syllogism but what does it mean to believe in Christ? This is where many people make their dangerous mistake. Biblical faith is not just an intellectual belief in the historical Jesus and it's not just believing that Jesus died for your sins. Every professing Christian will say that "I believe in Jesus", "I believe that Jesus died for my sins" I accept Him as my personal Lord and savior." They might not say Lord but they'll say "I've accepted Him as my Savior."

So we look at historical Christianity. The thesis is that there are distinquisihing traits that make up what a true Christian is and I want to examine what some of these are. I'll be doing that soon. I just want to give you some material to think about now.
