Question Concerning Assurance in Following Jesus
I was raised Muslim (Islam) but converted to Christianity a couple of years ago. How can I be assured that I made the right decision? I want to do what's right and I want to go to Heaven but sometimes I have doubts.
You made the right choice if you are saved because Christ made the right choice in you.
We are Christians when we are “Born Again.”
You cannot birth yourself.
Salvation is the work of Christ not you.
Christ was the perfect “lamb of God.”
He was sacrificed to pay our sin price.
He became our sin and he received the punishment for law-breakers who sin and turn from their sin, or repent, and trust that Jesus Christ paid for their sin.
Jesus was and is god in the flesh.
Only Jesus can pay our sin debt.
We are saved from God by God.
Your sin caused the need for salvation.
Did you make the right decision?
You only if you were saved if you trust Christ for salvation.
How can you be assured?
If you are saved your sins are paid for.
Romans 5:9 (ESV)
“9 Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God.”
1 Thessalonians 5:9 (ESV)
“9 For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,”
English Standard Version (ESV)
“20 But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,”
Islam depends on your works.
We are imperfect and sinners.
The only true salvation is found in Jesus Christ.
He did all the work.
