Evidence of Salvation

There are many who profess to be a Christian but there is no fruit to show. Then for some, doubt sneaks in and begins to cause confusion about their salvation. It's not something to ignore, but to seriously investigate. For a born again Christian, there is evidence - seven things to check.

The Evidence of Salvation

1. Hearing God's Word
  • He that is of God heareth God's words... (John 8:47)
  • We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. ... (I John 4:6)
  • My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: (John 10:27)

2. Love for God's children

  • But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.(I Thessalonians 4:9)
  • We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.(I John 3:14)

3. A new outlook or perspective on life

  • Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.(II Corinthians 5:17)
  • Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. (John 3:3)
  • Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. (Romans 6:4)

4. Peace

  • Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: (Romans 5:1)
  • The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ (he is Lord of all) (Acts 10:36)
  • Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. (John 14:27)

5. The leading of God

  • For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. (Romans 8:14)
  • For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. (Philippians 2:13)
  • And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure. (1 John 3:3)

6. Good works

  • For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. (Ephesians 2:10)
  • For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. (James 2:26)

7. The chastening of God

  • For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? (Hebrews 12:6-8)
  • But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. (Hebrews 12:8)

Put yourself to the test


  1. Thought provoking and very true. We need daily to check out these pearls from God's word and to continually test ourselves. Blessings, Jean

  2. Thanks, Jean. Just prior to my posting this I had talked with someone who claims to be saved but has little noticeable fruit in his life. So I was prompted to post biblical evidences of salvation.
