Life’s Key Questions: “How can I be sure of my faith?” 01.03.15 – Pastor Kassebaum

“How Can I Be Sure of My Faith?” – Romans 10:9-13 – Pastor Kassebaum

More than a feeling

Our feelings are changeable and deceptive.

Our Heavenly Father wants us to be sure of our relationship with Him.

John 10:27-28

A resurrection faith

There is nothing more certain than Jesus’ victory over death.

Because of Jesus, we trust that the barrier between us and God has been removed.

Romans 8:1

Just open the door

Eternal life is free, but not cheap.

Trust the Word of God, the work of Jesus and the witness of the Holy Spirit.

Revelation 3:20;  John 10:22-30
