"Brother, are you saved?" "Well, I-uh-think so." "You think so? You don't know?"

My walk with the Lord began when I was nine years old. I confessed my faith in Jesus, was baptized, and I believe that a new birth took place at that time. However, it was not untill I was a teenager that I began to get serious about the Christian life. When I did, a battle began-a battle that had to do with assurance of salvation. The battle has been a long one, and in fighting it I have gained a few insights which I would like to share with the reader of this booklet.

In my own case an overactive conscience-coupled with a tendency to rely on feelings-has been the biggest hindrance to assurance. Conscience is good and important. When it reminds us that we have sinned, it is doing the job it was intended to do. When we feel guilty, either we have sinned, or we think we have sinned, one or the other. So what is conscience going to do? Send us to hell? Absolutely not! Conscience can tell us we are guilty, but it cannot pronounce a verdict on the sinner. Only God can do that, and on the basis of the shed blood of His Son, Jesus the Messiah, He has pronounced us not guilty.

In this booklet I would like to discuss some of the things stand in the way of assurance, and then offer some suggestions that may contribute toward gaining the assurance we lack.

"I write these things to you who believed in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life." 1 Jn 5:13 (NIV)
