How can you be so sure that you are a child of God? The Spirit Assures a Child of God.

the Spirit assures. You keep on sinning even after you have been born again, don’t you? So how can you be so sure that you are a child of God?

You can be so bold because the Spirit within you attests directly to your spirit that you are a son of God. In this most wondrous of works, “the Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are the sons of God” (Rom. 8:16). Nothing less than the Spirit’s constant working could keep the sinner certain of his salvation. But who would dare contradict the solemn witness of God’s own Spirit? Because of His personal testimony within your own spirit, you can be at peace. Be assured. If His witness is there, you are a son of God.
