"Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life." - 1 John 5:12 ESV
How can we be so certain of this? You are saved by the grace of God, not by your deeds or actions. You cannot be religious enough; you cannot help enough people; you cannot donate enough money—there is absolutely nothing you can do to earn your way into heaven. And because there is nothing you can do to earn salvation, there is nothing you can do to lose it. Once saved, always saved.
So, you may ask, “If I’m always saved, does that mean I can go out and live a rebellious life without having to worry about being shut out of heaven?” Well, yes, you could. But if you were genuine in accepting Christ, you will not want to live this selfishly. You will have such gratitude to Jesus for His remarkable gift that you will seek to live your life in a manner that pleases Him. He loved you enough to save you, and you’ll want to love Him back.
Perhaps some of you are worried that maybe you weren’t really saved years ago. Perhaps your decision to come to Christ was done on a whim or without the proper analysis. If you’re still unsure, you can always ask Him to save you for sure. Read Revelation 3:20 and John 3:36. Believe those wonderful words of God, and you can know for sure that you have eternal life.
