Assurance of Heaven
Welcome to the Assurance of Heaven blog post about knowing how to be saved for eternal life. Assurance of Salvation is the most important aspect of a person’s life. Here are four key action verbs to describe the process:
Recognize >> Repent >> Ask >> Receive
Through Bible Study and listening to Bible teachers, I found a simple four step process straight out of the Bible to guarantee a place in God’s Eternal Kingdom:
1. Recognize Your Sinfulness – Romans 3:23
“All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
2. Believe Jesus died for You – Acts 16:31
“Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household.”
3. Receive Him as Savior – John 1:12
“But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.”
4. Trust His Promise – John 20:31
“These are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.”
Christ believed in salvation received and heaven assured in regard to Assurance of Heaven.
“In terms of salvation, you cannot separate faith and repentance—both happen simultaneously. In order to be saved, you must place faith in Christ for the forgiveness of sins, and that faith decision requires a change of mind (repentance) about your way of life. Yet many people mistakenly believe they must change their way of living long before they can make a faith decision for the Savior. The truth is, repentance does not mean that we must completely change our ways and “clean ourselves up” so we can receive Christ as Lord.
If you’re holding off on a decision for Christ until you think you are “ready” or “worthy,” you’re waiting in vain. Jesus is ready to receive you right now. Only as a child of God will you find the power—His power—to truly become the person you were created to be.” Dr. Charles Stanley

I like to use the Bible Gateway site as I can see many different translations when doing my Bible Study.
