The person who is religious, but not truly converted will be offended if someone asks them if they are saved or if they have repented and trusted Christ. But the true Christian will welcome such questions and will be thankful for that person’s concern for their soul; they will find such questions a delight and will rejoice in such a personal discussion about their soul. This evidences if a person is a true Christian or not.
– Mack Tomlinson
Beware of presuming you are saved. If your heart is renewed, if you hate the things you once loved and love the things you once hated, if you have really repented, if there is a thorough change of mind within you, then you have reason to rejoice. But if there is no vital change, no inward godliness, no love to God, no prayer, no work of the Holy Spirit, then the statement “I am saved” is only your own assertion and it may delude you, but it will not deliver you.
– C. H. Spurgeon
