1 Thessalonians 5:8 NLT But let us who live in the light be clearheaded, protected by the armor of faith and love, and wearing as our helmet the confidence of our salvation.

There are believers who are hoping, praying, and wishing they’re saved and they’ll go to heaven when they die. They’re unsure about their salvation based on various things they’ve heard or read out of context.

Some feel like they have to behave close to flawlessly to be saved. Others feel like a certain amount of good works will provide them with a ticket to heaven.

Here’s the truth: if we openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in our hearts that God raised Him from the dead, we will be saved (Romans 10:9). There’s nothing else to add. Ephesians 2:8 and 9 says, For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. Salvation is a gift from God. We can’t work for it or earn it. It’s a gift given by God through the sacrifice of Jesus.

Our confidence should be in our belief in what Jesus accomplished on the cross. If we believe that Jesus is the Son of God and He died for the sins of the world, we are saved. Be confident in your salvation, knowing you or any other believer will be in the presence of the Lord when we transition (2 Cor. 5:8).
