Want to be 100% sure?

I often hear from friends who are professing believers that they are not 100% they are going to heaven. Here is how I reply:
I am 100% sure I am going to heaven. Is that because I have confidence that I am good enough left to myself?—meaning I think that since I haven’t murdered anyone that I’ll get in?
By no means! I am 100% sure because I have asked Christ to pay the penalty of sin I deserved to pay and only He is 100% able to pay the penalty for me.
1 John 5:13 says, “I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life.”
Charles Spurgeon said, “ If you believe in the Lord Jesus, if you have repented of sin, if you have been renewed in heart, if you are one of the Lord’s people, there’s a place reserved for you.”
So what percentage are you?
