Do you know for sure that you have eternal life? The Bible says that you can know! I John 5:13 says, “These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the Son of God.”
Here is how you can know that you are saved. You must first acknowledge that you are a sinner. The Bible says in Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” This means everyone has sinned, regardless of how good they have been. Everyone still has fallen short of God’s expectations.
Because of the fact that you are a sinner you are condemned to death. In Romans 6:23 the Bible says, “The wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” This means through sin every one has earned death, but God through His mercy and grace has allowed us to be able to receive eternal life through Him.
You must then believe that Jesus can save you from the penalty of sin. The Bible says in John 1:12, “But as many as received Him to them gave he the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.”
You must decide to accept the gift that Jesus has offered you and ask Him to forgive you and make Him the Lord in your life. If you sincerely pray a prayer similar to the following and ask Jesus into you heart and life you will be saved. Just pray:
“Oh, God I know that I am a sinner. I believe that Jesus was my substitute when He died on the cross. I believe in His shed blood, death, burial, and resurrection were for me. I now receive Him as my Savior. I thank You for the forgiveness of my sins, the gift of salvation, and everlasting life, because of Your merciful grace. Amen.”
