I’m Saved! What Comes Next?

You’re not alone if you’ve ever asked yourself this question. Many of us didn’t know what came next after we received the Lord Jesus Christ as our Saviour. We surely appreciate the tremendous steps God took to redeem us and impart His eternal life into us so that we could be born again. But believing in Jesus Christ is just the beginning of our Christian life. So much more lies...

How to Maintain the Joy of Our Salvation

When the love of the Lord Jesus first touched us and we repented and confessed His name, a deep joy we’d never known before filled our hearts. What a joy it was to be forgiven and born again! God wants all His children to continue to rejoice in His wonderful salvation for their whole lives. This should be the normal experience of every believer, as we see in 1 Peter 1:8: “You exult with joy...

The Key to Experiencing Jesus Christ in Your Everyday Life

The day we get saved is a wonderful, momentous day. However, after experiencing the initial joy of salvation, it’s not unusual to wonder how to continue experiencing the Lord Jesus. You may have questions like How can I know Jesus personally? How can I experience Jesus in my life? Is being forgiven and saved from God’s judgment all there is to the Christian life? Some may try different ways...

3 Problems That Can Only Be Solved by the Blood of Jesus

Previously, we discussed how as believers in Jesus Christ, we can be fully assured that we’re really saved and can never lose our salvation—it’s eternally secure. Since we can’t lose our salvation, some might wonder if this means it doesn’t matter how we live after we’re saved. Are we free to do whatever we want? After all, nothing can change our salvation. It’s important to know...

The Danger of Thinking You Can Lose Your Salvation

In a previous post, we discussed one of the biggest questions we may have as Christians: Can we lose our salvation? We saw the clear and definite assurance the Bible gives us that once we believe in Christ and receive Him as our Saviour, we’re saved eternally. We can’t lose our salvation. But here’s another question: Does it make any difference whether we know we can’t lose our...

Can You Lose Your Salvation?

Have you ever wondered if you can lose your salvation? Or if you can be “unsaved” if you do something wrong or sin? It’s extremely important for us believers to be clear about several fundamental matters. One of these is having the assurance that we’re saved once we believe in Christ. Another fundamental matter we must be clear about is the security of our salvation. Just how secure is our...

Assurance of Salvation: How Do I Know I’m Saved?

As Christians, although we’ve believed in the Lord Jesus and received Him as our Saviour, at times we may wonder, “How do I know I’m saved?” Sometimes we feel we’re definitely saved; at other times, we’re not so sure. When we’re tossed back and forth between certainty and uncertainty, it’s difficult for us to progress in our Christian life. But we don’t have to be unsure. God provides three clear...

What Happens When a Person Gets Saved?

When we repent and receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Saviour, some wonderful things happen to us. We are forgiven of all our sins and delivered from God’s condemnation and eternal punishment. As a result, for the first time in our lives we have untold happiness and peace. We can’t help but love the Lord Jesus who died for us on the cross. Forgiven, delivered, and born again Being forgiven by...

3 Major Steps in God’s Plan of Salvation after the Fall of Man

We previously discussed how man was created by God for His own purpose but became fallen, sinful, and unable to live in a way that fulfills God’s plan. The consequences of the fall of mankind are tragic, and we see their effect in our own lives and everywhere we look today. But God can never be defeated! And, though frustrated for a time, God’s plan can’t be derailed. In His wisdom, God took...

What Really Happened in the Garden of Eden—the Consequences of Adam and Eve’s Choice

In a previous post, we saw that God warned Adam and Eve not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil in order to protect them. That tree represented Satan, the enemy of God and the source of death. Sadly, they disobeyed Him. Although their disobedience was serious, something even more tragic occurred: they were corrupted with Satan’s evil nature. In this post, we’ll see the...
