If you asked Jesus into your life as Saviour and Lord, many things have happened, including:
Jesus has come into your life
Jesus has come into your life by the Holy Spirit and he will never leave you
"And this is what God has testified: He has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have God’s Son does not have life."
1 John 5:11-12
Your sins have been forgiven
All your sins have been forgiven
"For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son, 14 who purchased our freedom and forgave our sins."
You are now a child of God
You have become a child of God. He is your heavenly father
"For you are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus."
You have been empowered
God has given you new power to live a transformed life.
"... anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun."
2 Corinthians 5:17
"When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.
Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen."
You are now friends with God
You have started a friendship with God that will last forever.
"And this is the way to have eternal life—to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, the one you sent to earth."
But how do we know this actually happened?
To be transported by an aeroplane, we must put our trust in the construction of the aircraft. Our feelings do not influence the fact that the plane will carry us.
In the same way, we can rely on God and trust what he has promised in the Bible, and not depend on the way we feel.
