Whether you’ve grown up going to church or are completely new to faith, you will wonder, at some point, if you really are saved. As someone who went to church from a young age, I wasn’t saved until I was a teenager. Just because I knew about God did not mean that I had made a meaningful commitment to love and serve Him.
The easy part of being saved is this: confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. (Rom 10:9) The hard part is walking it out.
If you have never made this commitment to God, then you need to. That will satisfy your heart and you name will be written in heaven. No matter how long you’ve been in church, no matter if you are a pastor or minister, if you have never asked Jesus to be your savior, you need to do it.
Paul says, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. (Phil 2:12) That means that it’s up to you to know that you have made the decision to be saved. No one can do it for you. And once you melt into the arms of the Living God, nothing will be the same again.
