Why should I doubt my Master's love
When He has saved me through His blood;
The riches of salvation given,
Withholding nothing, even heaven?
""Come take of my forgiveness now,""
The Kind One said and humbly bowed
Beneath the cross that brought Him shame
So I could know His matchless Name.
And then, He came to live within,
Erasing and forgiving sin;
And making me His wealthy heir
So all He has I now can share.
Forgive me, Lord, for senseless thoughts
That question you, when you have brought
Me every kindness I have known;
I worship now here before Your throne!

There are thousands, perhaps millions of people who believe they are Christians who will never enter heaven. This is not my evaluation, but the clear teaching of Christ Himself.
Christ spoke of false prophets who "come to you in sheep clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves" (Matt 7:15). It is not the outward clothing, but the inward heart that indicates a true believer.
What is the only way to know the difference between a professing believer and a real believer?

Of all the things Jesus could have addressed in the Sermon on the Mount, it's fascinating that He spends a good bit of time addressing worry. In fact, He commands us not to be worried: "Do not be worried about your life."
We are champion worriers. God knows that worry is so counterproductive. Not only is it useless, but it ties us up, destroys our faith, is a poor witness to those who are watching, and dishonors God. So, to help us He gives His true followers multiple reasons why worry is so useless.
