How to know you are SAVED

How can we know that we are SAVED and
that we have the HOPE of eternal life?
We have all been born into this sinful
world and we have inherited from our fathers a sinful nature and a
futile lifestyle. We go after things that do not matter, we are
selfish and we hate God. We can only be saved if we get rid of that
futile lifestyle, that rotten nature that will cause us to perish and
if we GO AFTER the NEW NATURE by which we DO what is pleasing to God.
If we are not delivered from that sinful nature, then we ARE NOT
I read the words of Peter in 1 Peter
1:17 “If you address as Father the One who impartially judges
according to each one’s work, CONDUCT YOURSELVES IN FEAR during the
time of your stay on earth; knowing that you were not
redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold from YOUR FUTILE
blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of
If we call God our Father then we must
FEAR Him and conduct our lives in FEAR of Him while we are on this
earth because we KNOW that He impartially judges all men. He does not
tolerate sinners. The wages of sin is death. We have to live our
lives in the FEAR OF GOD and make sure that we DO what is pleasing to
Him. We must not go after the things of this world but go after His
will and DO His will, THEN we KNOW that we are SAVED. Because, if we
go after the things of this world then we are still living a futile
corrupt lifestyle that will lead us to destruction and we will perish
if we continue along that road.
We must not worry about the things of
this world. we must worry about the will of God, being pleasing to
Him. I read the words of Jesus in Matthew 6:25 “For this reason I
say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what
you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as
to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the
body more than clothing? 26“Look at the birds of the air, that
they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your
heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than
they? 27“And who of you by being worried can add a single hour
to his life? 28“And why are you worried about clothing?
Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do
they spin, 29yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his
glory clothed himself like one of these. 30“But if God so
clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and
tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much
more clothe you? You of little faith! 31“Do not
worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we
drink?’ or ‘What will we wear for clothing?’ 32“For the
Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father
knows that you need all these things. 33“But seek first His
kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to
If we are SAVED and we call God our
Father then we seek His kingdom, we seek His approval, we seek to DO
His will, we worry about whether He is pleased with us. We live in
the FEAR of God. We do not worry about other things, the things of
this world because God KNOWS what we need and He will supply in ALL
our needs, if we are BORN AGAIN, IF we are HIS CHILDREN, IF we ARE
If we are still worried about the world
and the things of the world and what other people think of us then we
are not SAVED, we are STILL BOUND and attached to the world and the
things of the world, then we are OF the world and not of the kingdom
of God. Then we are not saved from this CORRUPTION, this FUTILE
LIFESTYLE, building temples on this earth, gathering treasures on
earth that will all perish. If we are still attached to all those
things then we are not SAVED FROM THEM, then we still BELONG to these
things. If we are truly SAVED from this FUTILE LIFESTYLE then our
focus is on Jesus Christ and DOING His WILL, on HEARING His VOICE, on
GOING where He sends us and DOING what He TELLS us because we can SEE
the kingdom of God. Those who are truly BORN AGAIN can SEE the
kingdom of God. They FOLLOW Jesus Christ, they HEAR His VOICE, but if
we are still attached to this world and fear the things of this world
then we are not of the kingdom of God and we ARE NOT SAVED.
Are you saved from this FUTILE
LIFESTYLE, this CORRUPTION and do you only fear God? Are you REALLY
So now you KNOW whether you are SAVED
or not. If you are not saved, GO ON YOUR KNEES and REPENT. Seek Jesus
with all your heart and ask Him to make you NEW inside, to SAVE you
from this FUTILE LIFESTYLE so that you will only fear God and live
to please Him and not care about the world, friends, family and all
these things around you. Ask Jesus to SAVE you and then LIVE for the
kingdom of God.

May Jesus bless you.
