As we prepare for revival I want to ask you to be sure that you are truly born again. In this day and age we often take salvation very flippantly. We are concerned with having prayed a prayer or made a decision but truthfully real salvation changes a person. Here is an article for you to just consider as you “examine yourself:!
2Co 13:5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?
True salvation Biblically makes us a “new creature!” “Old things are passed away!” You must know that it is not true that you are secure in your salvation and can therefore fall into sin and unfaithfulness. Yes, believers sin but we can not fall into horrible sin and backslide for long periods of time.
As true believers we can not abandon ourselves to sin. We can not be under the dominion of sin. True salvation puts a hunger in us to serve God.
Flee from the idea that you are saved and safe and can live any way that you want. Quit abusing the doctrine of eternal security!
You were not saved to give you fire insurance and to let your family have comfort when you die. You became a disciple of Jesus Christ. Yes you may sin after you are saved and you surely will but it is not our lifestyle now!
True salvation does a work in a person. We are predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son Romans 8:29! If we have this hope we will purify ourselves and separate ourselves form sin I John 3:3
If you are truly saved you will be changed or chastised. This new life is not a flippant decision that allows me to live any way I want. It changes what I want. It makes me desire the things of God.
If fear, and unbelief, sin, and wickedness constantly plague you and have the victory maybe you do not need revival but salvation.
Let us examine ourselves. We do not need better church members or more givers we need God to have truly worked in your life. We need converted people.
