The reason we must check ourselves for assurance of salvation is because we don’t routinely replenish ourselves with the truth of Scripture and daily believe and abide in CHRIST.

If I can’t answer, “Yes,” to the following questions may I feel my guilt, LORD, and confess my negligence with a contrite heart, then get into Bible reading and prayer:

Do I seek to be filled with the SPIRIT?   J.C. Ryle (ref#273, p150)

Do I seek to be more and more under the SPIRIT’s influence?  J.C. Ryle (ref#273, p150)

Do I strive to have every thought, and word, and action, and habit, brought under obedience to the leadings of the HOLY SPIRIT?  J.C. Ryle (ref#273, p150)

Do I avoid grieving the SPIRIT by inconsistencies and conformity to the world?  J.C. Ryle (ref#273, p150)

Do I cease quenching the SPIRIT by not trifling with little infirmities and small besetting sins?  J.C. Ryle (ref#273, p150)

Do I seek to have Him ruling and reigning more completely over me every week that I live?  J.C. Ryle (ref#273, p150)

Do I believe that I am a holy person in heart and life because I believe in CHRIST? J.C. Ryle (ref#273, p188-189)

Do I love what GOD loves and hate what GOD hates?   J.C. Ryle (ref#273, p189)

Do I look forward to death, judgment, and eternity without fear?   J.C. Ryle (ref#273, p188)

Because I believe in CHRIST, do I have inward peace and hope?   J.C. Ryle (ref#273, p187)

Do I have a humble sense of my own weakness?   J.C. Ryle (ref#273, p256)
