How do you know you belong to God? How do you know you are going to heaven?
Many falsely hope in their own deeds or the one deed of responding to a gospel call.

 “Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith; examine yourselves! Or do you not recognize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you—unless indeed you fail the test?”   2 Corinthians 13:5

God enacts change total, complete
Makes what is not so that it is
Brings dead ones to new life replete
Christ is one who paid the price
We trust what Christ did on the cross
He took God’s wrath, it does suffice
Conversion is this total change
Repentance and faith is the start
Priorities all rearrange
The Spirit now in you resides
Your choice will be to live for Him
By power for life He provides
If no change in your life you see
Examine in what you now trust
For truth in your inner self plea
That God may have mercy on you
Converting your every desire
Bring real change eternal and true
Faith and repentance are ongoing works of God that we see at work in us.
The grace of God is ever with us and He through it has saved us,
but the evidence of that past tense occurence is a present tense work
in our lives.
