1 John 3:18-24

Many who profess Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour struggle with finding assurance of their salvation.  Though they sit week in and week out in Churches up and down the length and breadth of the country, there remains a question that will not go away; am I truly saved?  In answering this question, this sermon seeks not to crop the branches but to lay the axe at the root by exploring the question, what is true biblical faith?  Many have the fanciful idea that faith is static, a mental ascent to a series of facts that they know nothing of in reality in their own lives.  My brethren, faith walks!! 

The apostle John his first epistle, furnishes us with weighty words which address the struggle that so many have in finding assurance of their salvation.  “My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him.” (1 Jn 3:18-19).  In other words, assurance and obedience are inextricably linked!!  We shall know that we are of the truth and shall assure our hearts before God on account of fruit being evidenced and outworked in our lives by the indwelling Holy Spirit as we walk in obedience!!  Could it be, the reason why so many Christians struggle with assurance of their salvation is because so many Christians walk in unbelief which manifests itself in disobedient lives?  May the Lord see fit to bring light to the matter at hand!!
