Q: How can I be sure I’m a Christian?

A:

The enemy tries to discourage or confuse all believers on this issue. Think about it: Anytime he can get believers to spend time wondering if they are saved is time he is keeping them from discovering how much authority this new life gives them over the kingdom of darkness. 

Here is some really good news—you can know without a doubt that you are born again! 

Romans 10:9-10 states it simply and clearly: “If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”

One favorite tactic of the enemy is to have the believer look at his own efforts to please God. But Ephesians 2:8 clears this up for us: “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God.” Our salvation does not depend on our best efforts but on Jesus’ finished work on the cross.

For sure, there will be times you will not “feel” saved. In those times, use the weapon you’ve been given to defeat wrong thinking and a persistent enemy—the Word of God. Regardless of your feelings, you can believe God’s written Word that says you have been made a new creature in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17)! Speak God’s Word regarding the reality of your salvation today!
