You Can Be Saved and Sure of It?
Salvation - New Birth - Eternal Live


Those having the New Birth
have become a New Person

And they have the Change
to Prove it

What is the Change?

"Therefore if any man be in Christ (Saved, Born Again), he is a new creature (new person, new creation): old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new."  2 Cor. 5:17

Those who are saved become a new person.  Outwardly, you will still look the same, but inwardly God has made a huge change.  You may make some changes yourself and you should, but this is not the change in reference.  It is a God-made change.

What kind of Change?
God puts this one thing, plus much more, but at least this one thing in every new heart, a desire to tell others ...
* "I have been born again."
* "I am forgiven."
* "I am on my way to Heaven.  Wouldn't you like to know, too?"

When God gives you this change, you will have the proof of being saved, born again, because you got what they Bible promises to everyone who has done what the Bible says to do: received Jesus Christ as Personal Saviour from sin.

Many express a sense of a weight lifted from their shoulders.  This release of the burden of sin is also a good sign of the proof of salvation.

 "As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions (sins) from us."
The Bible - Book Of Psalms - Chapter 103 - Verse 12

"I (God), even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions (sins) for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins."
The Bible - Book of Isaiah - Chapter 43 - Verse 25

Faith in Christ does the saving.  The changed heart does the proving.

 "Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin."
The Bible - Book of Romans - Chapter 6 - Verse 6

Our former heart, "our old man", is crucified with Jesus.  The "new man", changed heart, should not serve sin any more.
If you do serve sin in the future, it is not a sign that you have lost your "new heart", but a sign that you have backslid to the "old man", former heart, old heart.
Staying in the "new man" is not a sign of being saved.  Having received the "new man" at any point in time past is the indication of having been saved.

Did you get the change?
Yes, I got the change          No, I did not or I am not sure
