Can You say You have Eternal Life NOW?
If you cannot say at any moment,I know I am saved and I know I will go to heaven
Then you dont actually know you have Eternal Life until you actually get there or not.
Because you are relying on yourself.Relying on you persevering in good works and not sinning bad enough,to get you there.
You can know,the moment you believed on Christ,That He will make sure you get there.
Why are there so many Born Again Christians ,who doubt their Salvation?
Because they are looking at themselves,NOT at Christ.Looking at what they are doing or not doing Rather than looking at what Christ did,does and will do.ie Finish what He started in You.
Be pursuaded,like Paul was.Looking not at Himself,but at Jesus.
It is only by looking at Him,you will find all the assurance you need now and into the future,of where you will spend eternity.For IN HIM you have Eternal Life,NOT in yourself.
Place yourself under the law and you condemn yourself.
Place yourself under works,you will never do enough works to earn your way into heaven,no matter how good you are.
.Place yourself under the Grace and you know,when when you fail,you can walk boldly into the throne room of God and ask forgiveness and strength from Him to will and walk according to His purposes.
Doubting your Salvation is doubting Christ.
