Can a person know for sure if they are going to heaven? Or do we live the best we can and hope we won’t be disappointed?
I well remember sitting in my college apartment and having a young woman ask me when I’d become a Christian.
“I grew up in the church. I walk forward every time we have a revival and ask Christ into my heart,” I said.
“We only have to ask Jesus into our hearts one time” she said. “When we ask in faith, His Spirit comes to permanently dwell in us.”We only have to ask Jesus into our hearts one time. When we ask in faith, His Spirit comes to permanently dwell in us. #assurance, #grace Click To Tweet
