When you are saved, you should know it. Otherwise, how can you be a witness for Christ? The Bible speaks clearly and positively; it does not stammer. When you read it, you become certain. The Holy Spirit writes no doubts. The promises of God are Yes and Amen (2 Corinthians 1:20) and not No or Maybe. The Gospel trumpet sounds no faltering note.
Some people argue that it is presumptuous to declare you are saved, but that is false modesty in the light of so much Scriptural evidence. When Christ confronts you with the question of your need, you should not respond, "I want to have my questions answered and to give my view of salvation." Instead, you must repent and believe!
Being saved is not a casual experience, something you would hardly notice. When you repent and believe and come to the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, He receives you, and you are cleansed in His precious blood! Take these two statements made by Christ Jesus Himself: All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out (John 6:37) and for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost Luke 19:10.

I read this on Facebook today, and reposted it here (hope that is ok). I like Reinhard's view of things: plain and direct. Amen, so be it, thy will be done.
