Assurance of Salvation-After getting born again /receive-salvation/How to Receive salvation
But as many as received Him,to them He gave the right to become children of God,even to those who believe in His name.(John 1:12) The next verse goes on to say that these children are born of God,spiritually.
This is a followup post on how to receive salvation.When one receives salvation/receives Jesus, they need assurance/confidence or certainty of what has happened.This gives them the boldness to live out the new life in Christ Jesus. Because after you accept Jesus into your life/spirit/heart.He changes you on the inside.This is not the physical heart, but spiritual.
Assurance of salvation
1 Thessalonians 5:23, may the God of peace make you holy in every way and may your spirit, soul, and body be kept blameless until our Lord Jesus comes. You are a spirit. You have a soul, and you ‘housed’ by your body.The soul is the mind, will, and emotions.You are a spirit, once the spirit is out, you are just a body, that will be buried.The real you is out/gone. The body without the spirit is dead.Dead body but the spirit is somewhere.Even (James 2:26) says As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead.
The spirit is the most important part of the human being.
(2 Corinthians 5:17), Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation because the old has passed away; behold, the new has come.If you have received Jesus Christ into your heart, your spirit has been reborn.You became new.You are now starting afresh.You are a new creation, in the spirit.This is being born again, according to (John 3:3), where Jesus said no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.Get born again, which is the rebirth/being born in the spirit
You now have everlasting life.(John 3:16), For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only son, that whosoever believes in Him, should not perish but have everlasting life.This is the good news.For anyone has the privilege/opportunity to receive the Lord.It’s for anybody.
Everlasting life is the life we get from Jesus Christ. It is eternal life.After receiving Jesus, when you die, you have access to God/to heaven.
Separation from God and its consequences is what is perishing.
