The other day in class, some of my students were wanting to use my computer to check their ACT scores. Colleges all over the United States use ACT scores for student acceptance, scholarships, etc. Back when I took the ACT, I had to wait 5 or 6 weeks to get my results by snail mail. But today, those scores are posted Online in half the time. All a student needs is a user name and password to retrieve their results.

Wouldn't it be nice if Heaven had a website where we could check to see if we were written in the Book Of Life? We could maybe log-on with our Social Security Number and see if we had Eternal Life. We would no longer have to worry if we were heaven-bound or not, as the results could be right there in black and white. Knowing we were saved like that could sure take away a lot of worry while here on earth. But you know what? There is a way we can know if we are saved! We don't ever have to wonder or worry about it, and we don't need a computer to check. The Bible makes it crystal clear how to be saved. If you are not sure if you are saved, then you probably are not. To be saved, all you have to do is confess to being a sinner. Acknowledge that God loved you so much that He sent His only Son Jesus to die in your place. Ask Jesus to come into your heart and be your personal savior. When you do these things, the Bible guarantees that you are saved and have eternal life. Have you done these things? If you have, then you are saved! If you have not done these things, then why wait any longer? College may provide us with a secure future while here on earth, but being saved by Jesus will guarantee us security forever!

Romans 10:9 says, "If you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord' and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved."

Father, thank you so very much for saving me and giving me Eternal Life. I pray for every soul who is not saved yet. Lord, please lead them to Your precious Son Jesus. For it's in His name we pray, Amen.


  1. Such a website would be nice! Check out 1 John - there are a lot of indicators given there to help assess if we are waking with God. Some of them are: do we love our brothers, walking in the Spirit, do we confess our sins. I think that sometimes we worry about our salvation because we haven't fully accepted God's assurances of it.
