EP # 099 | Assurance of Salvation

Update: 2020-07-0112



To be a Christian is, by definition, to possess salvation and all that it entails (forgiveness of sin, adoption as children of God, eternal reward in heaven, and much more). And yet, many professing Christians struggle to believe the promises that salvation brings because they don't possess the assurance that they are saved to begin with. In this episode of the Just Thinking podcast, Darrell and Virgil ("Omaha") show you from God's Word that assurance can be yours forever. 

Our recommended reading:

Am I Truly Saved? by Joel Webbon of Right Response Ministries

As we discuss the assurance of our salvation in this episode, Joel's study through 1 John provides a great resource to further dive into the truth of our salvation. With a forward by Costi Hinn and endorsements by Justin Peters (Justin Peters Ministries), Ben Merkel (President of New Saint Andrews) and many more, we highly recommend that you pick up your copy of this great resource!

I am new to listening to your guys's podcast. I started listening maybe two or three days ago and at first I was really going bored and I'm like yeah these guys are really doing it. But this episode Assurance of salvation, please let me know if I'm missing something. Because in the Bible it states that we need to obey Acts 2:38. Be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ and then we will receive the promise of the holy spirit. That I followed that part of the Bible but I'm a little concerned because with this title being Assurance of salvation, being as though the Holy Spirit is the Seal of the promise oh, I just feel as though it should be mentioned in this episode. Because what it sounds like is that people can just say yes I believe in Jesus Christ and be saved. and even living righteously or doing good deeds alone without having the Holy Spirit dwelling on the inside of them, they are still considered saved. but the gospel that I received when I was first saved and the doctrine that I was taught was that without the spirit of Christ dwelling on the inside of you you cannot be safe because flesh alone cannot abstain from sin you need the Holy Spirit dwelling on the inside of you to bring all things to your remembrance and keep you from acting on that sin as much as possible. I just know that being filled with the Holy Spirit a convicts my heart when I even have Wicked thoughts. and now I'm not as educated as y'all seem to be, but I hope you can understand where I'm coming from biblically
