Assurance of Salvation

The other day I was doing a Bible study with a friend. My opening question I like to ask is whether you are 100% sure that you will go to heaven. She wasn’t. She thought of her sins and couldn’t be 100% sure that God would accept her into heaven. But at the end of the study half an hour or so later, she was 100% sure. Praise God!

The study I was using is from Matthias Media and is called, Just For Starters. Every now and then you find a study or series of studies that just “nails it”. I have to admit that I am yet to find an investigating Christianity course that I think really nails it. There are many that are good, but none that I have seen that really nail it! But when it comes to a gospel presentation, Matthias media’s Two Ways to Live “nails it”. And when it comes to a set of studies for Christians new to the faith or ‘young’ in the faith, Just for Starters nails it. I can’t speak highly enough of these ministry tools. Just for Starters was written for following up new Christians, but it really is good for any Christian who could use a good grounding in the basics, even if they have been Christian for 50 years.

Here’s the passage we studied. says:

For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God.
