Assurance of Salvation

QUESTION: How/Why can I know 100% that I am going to Heaven?

1 John 5:11–13

11 The testimony is this, that God gave to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 He who has the Son has the life. He who doesn’t have God’s Son doesn’t have the life. 13 These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.

(vv.11-12): How do you get eternal life? Who gave it to you and by what means?

(v.13): Who is John writing to? What is promised to those who believe in the name of the Son of God?


What if anything is stopping you from believing that you will go to Heaven?

Are there times that you feel like you are not saved? Why? What is the fact concerning your salvation?

What can you do during those times of doubt?


Take God at His Word.

“I believe hundreds of Christian people are being deceived by Satan now on this point, that they have not got the assurance of salvation just because they are not willing to take God at His word.”
— Dwight L. Moody
