The very foundation of Salvation is grounded in the realization that God’s unmerited love toward us is greater than any other power– Including death!!    Romans 8:38-39, Ephesians 3:14-21

 

Can you  without any hesitation say that you experience Eternal Salvation right now? Do you have full assurance that Jesus has saved you and He is continuing to save you? If today were your last moments to live  can you say without pause and with complete assurance that you are saved?

The Bible teaches us that we have the “assurance” of salvation when we “trust” Jesus with our lives, that’s it.      Psa 31:14-16 Once we trust Jesus, He, our great Heavenly Physician, will perfectly heal and restore us, thus our assurance is in Jesus, not in ourselves or our future. “This is life eternal that they might know you the only true God and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.” (John 17:3). When we “know” God as Jesus revealed Him to be and trust Him, then we have confidence, faith, or trust in Jesus’ ability to “save” (salvage) us! Our assurance or confidence is in our Savior (just like the thief on the Cross) not in a legal payment. Thus we can have complete assurance that we have Salvation NOW!!!! Praise God!!!!!1 John 5:11-13

We have Assurance that we don’t have to save ourselves.

We have made salvation woefully complicated.  We have brought our own ideas and opinions to the discussion.  When I choose to trust Jesus with my Life, then Jesus and Jesus alone will save me!  He is my Savior.  “In Christ,” Jesus wants us to sit down and enjoy what He has already done for us.  We are not to try to work at attaining these blessings.  I can’t add anything to the equation of Salvation no matter what I do.  “He who glories, let him glory in the Lord.”  Once we trust Jesus with our lives, He freely gives us all things which are bestowed “through Christ” and His Cross.                    1 Corinthians 1:30-31.  Luke 2:10-11.  Hebrews 4:1-8.

Jesus wants us to enjoy Salvation now!!

We have “Assurance that Jesus alone is reconciling us to Him”. 

Now all thing are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.”  2 Corinthians 5:18-19.  Jesus wants to heal us completely from the virus of sin.  Reconciliation is a change from enmity to friendship and is brought about my God alone.  “In Christ” we become a new creation.  This is possible only through the compelling love of Jesus.  He will draw us to Him with an everlasting love.  His transforming, reconciling love is through His Holy Spirit.  2 Corinthians 3:18.  Are you baptized by the Holy Spirit?  John 1:29, 33,  Luke 3:16,  Acts 1:5,2; 1-4,  Ephesians 5:18, 6:18,  Luke 11:13,  Galatians 5:22-23.

 

The truth is that Jesus wants to literally live out His life in us giving us His victory:  This is “being in Christ Jesus”.  Colossians 1:27.

 

We have Assurance that Jesus is writing “His laws” (plural) in our minds.

Yes, laws, plural.  His laws of love and liberty.  By completely healing us,  Jesus will remove selfishness from our minds and will restore in us the living law of love and liberty.  Praise God:  Hebrews 8:10, 10:16, 2 Corinthians 5:17.  (More on the concepts about the laws of love and liberty in future studies)

 

When we are “in Christ Jesus”  He will manifest Himself in and through us. 

It’s Christ alone who heals us!  It’s Christ alone who restores His image in us!  This is why there is no fear, anxiety, worry or burden abiding “in Christ Jesus”.  It’s all about Jesus.  We simply allow Him to do these things in and through us by The Holy Spirit.  Romans 8:1-5, 11.

  We have the “assurance” of salvation when we “trust” Jesus with our lives, that’s it.  Once we trust Jesus, He, our great Heavenly Physician, will perfectly heal and restore us, thus our assurance is in Jesus, not in ourselves or our future. Salvation is Now!!  Psa 31:14-15, 1John 5:11-13,   1 John 3:2,   John 17:3
