Stop Asking Jesus Into Your Heart Teen Edition: How to Know for Sure You are Saved by J.D. Greear

Why is it so difficult to know that you are saved? The idea of “asking Jesus into your heart” or “giving your life to Jesus” often gives false assurance to those who are not saved—and keeps those who genuinely are saved from fully embracing that reality. Greear unpacks the doctrine of assurance and answers the tough questions: What exactly is faith? What is repentance? Why are there so many warnings that seem to imply we can lose our salvation? Such issues are handled with respect to the theological rigors they require, but Greear and Gaston are careful to present the material with a pastoral sensitivity and communication technique that makes this message teachable and applicable to teens.

Teen to Teen: 365 Daily Devotions by Teen Guys for Teen Guys and Teen to Teen: 365 Daily Devotions for Teen Girls by Teen Girls compiled by Patti M. Hummel

What more encouraging way to gain perspective than by talking to someone who has been there, especially when that someone is one of your peers. Written expressly for teens by teens, this unique 365 day devotional is filled with personal experiences that are relatable and heart-felt. In addition to learning teen to teen how to deal with difficult issues and maneuver the often trying path to adulthood, each devotion leads teens to move into a deeper relationship with Christ as they recognize that He is the answer to life’s problems and strife. Through the stories of others, teens see how God works in our lives when we open ourselves to Him. The devotion includes hundreds of teen authors and teens love reading what their peers have written. This devotional creates a safe, social atmosphere for teens to learn that they are not alone and that God is at work in their lives. Teens learn from other’s failures and triumphs how to make the right choices. The impetus for this devotional is to help teens understand how God can and does work in their lives.
