Scripture of the Month
In this verse one of the greatest question of man is asked. There are many different opinions of how an individual can know that they have been born again. In verses 29-34 of the chapter we see a clear outline of biblical salvation.
1) There Must Be Conviction vs 29-30
> a desire for the light (a type of God's word)
> a disrupting of his life (he came trembling)
> a desire to be loosed (he asked to be saved)
2) There Must Be A Choice vs 31-32
> the action (believe of the finished work of Christ at Calvary)
> the assurance (thou shalt be saved)
> the avenue (we are begotten by the Word of God)
3) There Must Be A Change vs 33-34
> it was immediate (not a progressive salvation)
> it was intentional (he chose to wash their stripes which he put on them. Restoration)
> it was infectious (his house also believed because of the change in him)
