“Have you no wish for others to be saved? Then you are not saved yourself, be sure of that”(Charles Spurgeon) When you think of “salvation,” what comes to your mind? Do you think of praying a prayer and “chas-sam” you’re instantly saved? Do you think of walking down an aisle and having someone pray over you? Or, do you think of being saved as an emotionally fuzzy feeling that you can’t tell where it came from? Although, salvation may have elements like the ones above or may occur in a radical way as that described above, chances are that much more was involved. You see, salvation is described in the Bible as a radical, indisputable, and un-creature-like transformation. What do I mean with this? Well, that true salvation causes an internal transformation and change that generates changes in attitude, will, desires, thinking, perspective, values, morals, and so on, which are the necessary, inevitable, and natural corollary. In other words, the Bible clearly declares that we are new creations, and that as new creations, we stubbornly desire the heavenly things. This new proclivity is supernatural and rises out of a new heart, a new birth, regeneration, true conversion, repentance, and so forth. We cannot deny this precious truth or else we will not know the difference between a true child of God and a child of the Devil (1 John 3:1-10). In fact, we cannot allow the individual conscious or personal motives or testimonies to be the only voice of true salvation because there is a real possibility that self-deception can occur (1 John 1:6-10, 2 Corinthians 4:1-5). For this reason the Bible also says that there is fruit that accompanies our salvation. Objectively visible, seeable, and evident fruit is a corollary to true salvation: Js 2:14-26, Gal 5:22-24, John 8:31, 15:1-11, 1John 2:3-6, 3:4-10. This is not to deny the internal witness of the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:16-17), however, the internal witness of the Spirit is not enough. Two evidences of salvation, and therefore, proofs or assurance is: the internal witness as well as the fruit generated by the Holy Spirit. Notice the simple declaration or statement in Galatians 5:22-23, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, etc.The by-product or effect of a true child of God is the fruit of the Spirit. Hanging fruit is clearly noticeable and overtly seen, that cannot be denied. In sum, a true Christian truly has a desire to see the lost saved. Three visible fruit of salvation is a genuine love for God, love for others, and then a sense of true delight in obedience. It is no surprise that Spurgeon said what he said above. True Christian, proclaim the gospel! Share your faith! Love the lost!
