Basement Tape #80: Assurance of Salvation

By in on

How can I know for sure that I’m saved? Can we have assurance in this life? Perhaps no question cuts to the heart of our deepest fears, and our most potent longings. Eternity is at stake. We often let feelings determine what we believe in this area which leads to fear and uncertainty. There are better and more sure things to consider when discussing assurance than feelings. Join us for a conversation that we hope will draw you from fear to confidence in the work of Christ.

In the garden it all came crashing down because Eve did not believe God. We, her children, suffer from the same weakness. We are bundles of unbelief, slowly destroying ourselves. The only solution is faith, believing God.

Savorless Salt

When we are yet outside the kingdom, before we are born a second time, we suppress the truth in unrighteousness (Romans 1). This does not mean we are stupid. It does mean we are foolish. We know what we know but because such knowledge exposes our guilt, we suppress it. We are born again when God the Holy Spirit changes us, replacing our hearts of stone with a heart of flesh, when that same Spirit indwells us, and cleanses us.
