Well, the Bible has good news for you. You can be sure. In fact, God wants you to be sure. And it’s not as complicated as you might think.
Let’s look at what God says in His Word.
Jesus Gives Eternal Life to Those Who Believe in Him
But God loves us so much that He provided a way. That way is through His Son, the Lord Jesus. By dying on the Cross, Jesus paid the full and complete price for our sins so that we don’t have to.
Because He shed His blood and died for us, Jesus Christ is able to fulfill His promise to freely give believers eternal life.
What Is Eternal Life?
In another sense, eternal life is not merely unending life. It is the life of God. Indeed, John refers to Jesus Christ Himself as eternal life. Eternal life is God’s kind of life. It is life that comes from God. Thus a person who has eternal life has God’s life within him.
It is obvious from what we have just said that eternal life doesn’t begin when we die. Jesus said, “He who believes in Me has [present tense] everlasting life.” He didn’t say that the one who believes in Him will have (future tense) everlasting life. He said that he has eternal life–from that very first moment of faith. Thus a brand-new believer has God’s life, which is unending and full of potential.
Is It Really That Simple?
She was definite and assured. Martha didn’t hesitate to say, “Yes, Lord I believe.” She believed that Jesus was the Christ, the Messiah, the Son of God, the One whom the Old Testament prophets had foretold.” She knew that the Messiah gives eternal life to all who believe in Him. There was no doubt in her mind.
Like Martha, you too can be sure you have eternal life. The Bible says that you must believe in Christ for eternal life. Have you done that? If you have, then you are saved! It really is that simple!
