Blessings that occur to me (some realized in this life and world; others fully attained in eternity): Eternal life in God's presence Righteousness/Justification/Forgiveness of sin/Avoidance of judgment Peace with God/Reconciliation to God Fellowship with other believers in this life and in eternity Indwelling by the Holy Spirit Perseverance Character Hope Glory Access to God through prayer A clear conscience Joy An eternal perspective on adversity Confidence Motivation to love and do good Ability to set an example for others, and to bring them to that same salvation Assurance/security Love from God/Love for God/Love for others A new nature Boldness in proclaiming the gospel
Some blessings of salvation through faith in Jesus are: Eternal life John 3:16, 36; 5:24; 6:40, 47 (Tim mentioned this one) Forgiveness Acts 10:43 A clear conscience (Tim mentioned; I add the verse, Acts 24:16 ESV, "So I always take pains to have a clear conscience toward both God and man.") Victory over death John 11:25-27 I love John 11:26 NKJV for witnessing: "And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?” Also, these 2 translations would work: GW "Everyone who lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe that?” "Everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die—ever. Do you believe this?” HCSB
