DONE: You Have Been Given Assurance of Eternity in Heaven

And this is the secret: Christ lives in you. This gives you assurance of sharing his glory (Colossians 1:27).

Want to know the secret to never doubting your salvation?

It’s simple: The presence of Jesus living within you gives you assurance of sharing in God’s eternal glory. This means your salvation doesn’t depend on anything you do, or anything you don’t do. It’s all because of what Jesus has done for you.

This is great news because it means you can’t screw it up!

In order to fully grasp what this means though, we should look at the complete definition of assurance:

as·sur·ance [uh-shur-uhns]
1. a positive declaration intended to give confidence.
2. promise or pledge; guaranty; surety.
3. full confidence; freedom from doubt; certainty.

The presence of Christ within you gives you confidence that your eternity will be spent living in glory. It’s a promise from God, guaranteed to never change, setting you free from any doubt or uncertainty regarding your salvation!

As long as you’re looking at salvation as a reward for you being a good person, you will always question whether you’re good enough. If, however, you trust the work of Jesus to earn salvation for you, you can have confident assurance of eternal life in Heaven.

This is why it’s so important to understand that your salvation is all about Jesus doing for you what you could never do for yourself.
