Assurance of Salvation: Overcoming Doubts

This Lord’s Day, we will deal with the topic of assurance of salvation. We will answer these five common doubts that Christians experience. Launching from 1 Corinthians 2:12, we will cover several other passages as well. This is designed for believers who have doubts, and I pray that it will help you or help your children. Here are the five doubts we address:

  • Doubt 1: I worry that I’m not of the elect
  • Doubt 2: I doubt that I’m not really converted
  • Doubt 3: I’m not saved since I can’t pray, and prayers go unanswered
  • Doubt 4: I know all the doctrine, but my heart is cold and unmoved
  • Doubt 5: I’m not saved because sin still has great power over me

Public reading:2 Peter 1:3-11; Benediction:Psalm 4:6

1 Corinthians 2:12

12 Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God. (ESV)

2 Peter 1:3-11

His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire. For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For whoever lacks these qualities is so nearsighted that he is blind, having forgotten that he was cleansed from his former sins. 10 Therefore, brothers, be all the more diligent to make your calling and election sure, for if you practice these qualities you will never fall. 11 For in this way there will be richly provided for you an entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. (ESV)
