There is nothing wrong with asking the questions, “Am I in Christ?” or “Am I really saved?” 1 Thessalonians 5:21 says, “Test everything; hold fast what is good.” Why would you think it is healthy for us to ask these questions?

These questions are healthy because they have to do with the most important concerns of life: our relationship with God. These questions are the most important ones we will ever ask. God is the creator and giver of life, the only one who can forgive our sins, the judge of us all in the end, and the only one who will either welcome us into eternity with him or cast us away from his presence forever. A positive relationship with him through faith in his Son, Jesus Christ – which includes belief, repentance, acceptance of Jesus’ authority, and obedience in baptism as we begin a life of discipleship – gives us assurance, confidence and courage to live life now and face death eventually. Nothing else matters more in this life or after death.
