When we were children in the Oklahoma hills, one of our pastimes was to pick the petals from a sunflower bloom or a daisy, while saying with each petal, “She loves me, she loves me not.” Thankfully, we don’t have to do those kinds of things to determine whether or not God loves us, because there is a way of knowing. That is through the knowledge gained by experiencing a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, His Son. How can we know? How can we confirm our experience in Christ? There are some ways we can know. Hopefully, some of these can be revealed in this attempt to describe a Christian Experience. During my more than fifty years in the ministry, I have heard many say they were not sure if they were saved, and I have seen others who claimed to be born again but denied it by their behavior. John makes it very clear in his writings, in chapter five, verse twelve. He just simply says if you have Christ, you’re saved; if you don’t, you aren’t.
Are you saved? Are you certain?
