Assurance of Salvation

 

After a sinner accepts Jesus as her personal Savior, Satan knows he can not reclaim that life, so he will do all within his evil, deceptive mind to hinder the Spiritual development of a new Christian. One of his schemes is to try and convince the new convert her profession was not made in sincerity, And if he can do that, he has won a real battle. Therefore, don’t listen to Satan, but listen to the Holy Spirit.

 

This scripture should be helpful:

 

“But if by the Spirit you put to death deeds of the body, you will live. For all who are led by the spirit of God are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba, Father!” The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirits that we are children of God. And if children, then heirs- heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with Him in order that we may also be glorified with Him.”  Romans 8: 13-17

 

Heavenly Father, I remember when we were adopting our children, we weren’t willing to adopt just any child: the child must meet our desires as prospective parents. But I’m thankful when adopting a child that Your only requirement is that she’s trusting Jesus as her personal Savior. Thank You for adopting me into Your family. Amen.
