[CF Devotionals] 2006-01-14 - How to Know If You are Saved

Hey Friends,

I just got home from a wake/funeral and spending the day with 50 people at my cousin's house. She has a really nice house, which is 7000 sq. ft. inside the house alone. I have been struggling with sinus problems for the last three days. Please pray for my cousin's and friends, and also for myself.

I will keep the scripture quoting down just to the references, and let you read the additional verses.

How do you know if you are saved?

Hebrews 6:9 Even though we speak like this, dear friends, we are confident of better things in your case—things that accompany salvation. 10 God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them. 11 We want each of you to show this same diligence to the very end, in order to make your hope sure. 12 We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised. (NIV)

1 John 4:13-15 We know that we live in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit. 14 And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. 15 If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in him and he in God. (NIV)

If you are saved, you will:

  1. Do the work of Jesus. (Hebrews 6:10 & 12)

    Jesus said "I only do what I see the Father do"

    1 John 5:1-2

  2. Share the love of Jesus. (Hebrews 6:10)

    1 John 2:3-6

    John 13:34

  3. Persevere with Jesus. (Hebrews 6:11-12)

    It is referring to our faith and patience.

    Philippians 2:12

    Hebrews 6:7a

In Christ,
