Words of comfort: Really Saved?

If you speak to someone who professes to know God and you are not certain of their salvation, simply ask if they have been “born again” (see John 3:1–7). If you find that they are not sure (this is one sign that they haven’t—1 John 5:10) or they say that they haven’t, here is how you can bring focus to its importance. Tell them that the difference between believing in God and being born again is like the difference betweenbelieving in a parachute and putting it on. There’s a big difference when you jump from the plane. Then say, “Do you know what convinced me that I had to be born again? It was the Ten Commandments.” Then take them through the spiritual nature of the Law, which brings the knowledge of sin (Romans 7:7).
