Bits & Bytes

Posted by Rick on October 6, 2009

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s message, “Are You Sure You’re Saved?” based on I John 5:11-13:

  • Many people have some sort of “religious experience” and think they are saved.
  • Many people are led to believe that walking down an aisle or getting baptized makes them saved.
  • John wrote that we can be sure we’re saved if you:
    • have a hatred of sin
    • desire to obey God’s law
    • have a love for the brethren
    • have a desire to be holy
    • have the internal witness of the Holy Spirit.
  • Our assurance of salvation is not based on experience, a prayer, or a ceremony.
  • True Biblical assurance is to be based on the presence of these real and observable measures in our lives.
