Do You Know For Sure
Anne and her mother had been going to church together for many years since she was young. She was now 25 years old. As long as she remembered their life had been a life of going to church. They attended church 3 days a week and sometimes 7 days a week. In the evening before going to bed one day, Anne asked her mother if she knew for certain she was going to heaven. Her mother said she didn’t know, but she said “For sure I would like to go to heaven”. Anne shared the Gospel with her mother, knelt with her by the bed, and right there led her in prayer to trust Christ for eternal life. Anne’s dad noticed a dramatic change in his wife. Before, she had been a “worry wart” who worried about everything. After she put her trust in Christ she didn’t worry about things but trusted Christ completely.
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. (KJV)
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. (KJV)
1 John 5:13
I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. (NIV)
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. (NLT)
Those who trust in the Lord are as secure as Mount Zion; they will not be defeated but will endure forever.
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. 12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. 13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
