God's Election

During our Community Care Group study on God's Election we discussed election as an act of God whereby He chose those who will be saved. Second Timothy 1:9 "God saved us and called us with a Holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and Grace... "

The question then came up, how do we know for sure that we are saved. I started to read more and came across this website: www.desiringgod.org:     

The unmistakable message all through the New Testament is this: we are saved by believing in Jesus. So rivet your attention on Christ in the gospels — John, Matthew, Mark, Luke — and the whole Bible. Rivet your attention on Christ and say what you see. Confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord (Romans 10:9). And say what you feel about this: “I receive him. I love him. He is my God. He is my Lord. He is my treasure.” Confess that. Let yourself hear yourself saying that. Say it to others. Say it to your wife. Say it to your kids. Say it to your friends. “Jesus is my Lord.” The Bible says no one can say “Jesus is Lord” except by the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:3). So if you say it and mean it, God is at work in your life, you have the Holy Spirit.
