You will not have a “know-so” salvation. You will have a “hope-so” salvation. Rather than being an exclamation point, you will be a question mark until you understand salvation is by grace. Then you’ll say, “Praise God! Hallelujah! I know that I am saved.”
Adrian, are you sure that you’re saved?
How can you be sure? You’ve got a lot of confidence in yourself, don’t you?
I don’t have any confidence in myself. You see, if I had any confidence in myself I could never be sure. I don’t know if I am good enough or not. But if it is by grace, then I can be sure.
Suppose there was a rule that everybody who wanted to be saved had to run around the block. Some wouldn’t be saved because they can’t run. Supposed everybody that wanted to be saved had to read a chapter in the Bible. Some can’t read. Or suppose everybody had to give a hundred dollars. Some don’t have a hundred dollars. But there is one thing that can make the promise sure, and that is grace.
Ephesians 2:8-9 says, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”
