Some Possible Concerns Before Having A Fresh Start!
First, and of primary concern — do you have “assurance” of your salvation? The Bible says to “make your calling and election sure” 2 Peter 1:10, so let’s go through a short “checklist” to make sure that you are saved. Be prepared if you want a fresh start:
- Are you aware that God became flesh in the person of Jesus Christ 1 Timothy 3:16, and that he died for the sins of the world?
- Did your sin bring you to the need for Jesus Christ to be your Savior?
- Did you “repent” and put your faith in Jesus?
- Are you convinced that He suffered and died on the Cross and that He rose again on the third day? God acquits us from the Courtroom of Eternal Justice because Jesus Christ paid our fine. We are “justified” (made right with God) by His suffering death. The resurrection of Jesus Christ was God’s seal of approval of the fact that His precious blood was sufficient to pay the penalty.
