And how to have an assurance of an eternal life
that could start even today and would never end?

God loved the people of this world so much that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who has faith in Him will have eternal life and never really die

Joh 3: 16
AWARENESS – a fair estimation of your position

Sin pays iff with death

Ro 6: 23a
ACCEPTANCE – receiving God’s love

But God showed how much he loved us by having Christ die for us, even though we were sinful

Rzym.: 5; 8
DECISION – a true will to change your current situation and your way of life

But if we confess our our sins to God, he can always be trusted to forgive us and take our sins away.

1 Jo 1: 9
CONFESSION – declaring Jesus the Lord of your life

So you will be saved, if you honestly say, "Jesus is Lord," and if you believe with all your heart that God raised him from death.

Ro 10: 9
GROWTH – a development of your spiritual life

Everything in the Scriptures is God's Word. All of it is useful for teaching and helping people and for correcting them and showing them how to live.
