What Is the Evidence That I Am Born of God?

Therefore, brothers, be all the more diligent to make your calling and election sure…
(2 Peter 1:10)

What is the evidence that we are born of God? We have the question answered in John’s first Epistle. Seven times we find the words “Born of God” occurring.

  1. Righteousness of life. “Every one that doeth righteousness is born of Him” (1 John 2:29 KJV).
  2. Not practicing sin. “Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin” (1 John 3:9 KJV).
  3. New nature implanted. “He cannot sin, because he is born of God” (1 John 3:9 KJV).
  4. Loving one another. “Every one that loveth is born of God” (1 John 4:7 KJV).
  5. Faith in Christ. “Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ, is born of God” (1 John 5:1 KJV).
  6. Victory over the world. “Whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world (1 John 5:4 KJV).
  7. Kept by Christ. “Whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but He that was begotten of God keepeth him” (1 John 5:18 KJV).
