ARE YOU REALLY SAVED?


I remember when I first became born again many years ago, I was part of a street witness team. Every other friday night we would go out somewhere in our city to witness to people about the things of God. Often times, we would sit and speak with people who would be plastered drunk, cursing, smoking, and obviously living a life filled with sin. Many of them will profess that Jesus was their best friend.


How would people live if they have truly surrendered their lives to Jesus?


2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!


1 John 3:9
No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God's seeds remain in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been born of God.


Galatians 5:19-21
The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred and discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambitions, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies and the like. I warn you, as I did before that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.


One night one of the street team participant ask me: "These people who claimed to be saved and live a life filled with sin are they really saved?"


I replied: Only God will decide who will and will not enter into the heaven for eternity. The one thing I do know though is that if Jesus comes into our lives, then Jesus should be flowing through us and coming out of our lives."
