A weekly morsel from Max Lucado:
How Can I Know?

Some say, “I have doubts—lots of them.  What I want to know is, how can I know I’m truly saved?”

You can know beyond the shadow of a doubt that you have eternal life! Romans 10:9 says, “If you confess with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”

First, confess that Jesus is Lord.  Say it out loud or quietly in your heart—just believe that Jesus was resurrected.  He’s not in the grave.  He’s God in the flesh, with power over death! Confess.  Believe.  You will have salvation!

But remember what the verse doesn’t say!  Live perfectly. Can’t do it.  Impossible. Just confess and believe.   Romans 8:1 says, Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.”
