How is it that people come to have assurance of their salvation in Jesus Christ? The Bible says it doesn’t begin with anything inside of us, but with the free promise of salvation in Christ, coupled with the sworn oath of God. The foundation of Christian assurance of eternal life is God’s eternal decree coupled with the bloody death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
There are many things Christians can disagree about, but there is no more important doctrine of the Christian faith than the new birth. Jesus clearly teaches, “You must be born again.” Listen to this sermon for what Jesus Christ teaches about the necessity of being born again to enter the kingdom of heaven.
