Scriptures: 1 John 5:13, 2:3-6
If you are a Christ-follower, how do you know that you are saved? What assurance do you have that you are indeed a member of God's family? We are living in an age of tremendous uncertainty. There is probably as much uncertainty about the future of both our country and our world as we have ever experienced in our lifetimes. It seems impossible to be absolutely certain about everything. Yet the Bible tells us that we can indeed know that we have eternal life in Christ. In this message, Dr. Merritt shares "how to know it" in simple, practical and biblical terms.
"Doubt sometimes is used by God to drive us back to Him and to His Word.Please understand that doubt doesn’t mean at all that you have really never been saved. As a matter of fact, you really only tend to doubt what you believe. Doubt can be a good thing. Doubt is to your spirit what pain is to your body." --Dr. Merritt
