Have you ever seriously contemplated whether or not you are saved?
Are you sure of it?
The last category below is the most dangerous. I pray none of you will be found to be in that category, the one referenced by this passage in Matthew.
Matthew 7:22-23 (ESV)
22 On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’
23 And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’
Every living person, without exception, can be assigned to one of these categories. The categories are:
1) those who are saved and know it,
2) those who are saved but do not know it,
3) those (like the man I mentioned above) who are unsaved and know it, and
4) those who are unsaved but do not know it.
