Understanding Christian Assurance

1 John 5 v13 specifically states we can know if we have eternal life.
'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." He writes to believers so that they can have assurance of salvation in Jesus Christ.
To know is to enter into a personal reliance upon Jesus Christ, enter into a personal relationship with him. It is not mere mental assent or acquaintance. It is a imitate relationship establish by faith through the working of the Holy Spirit.
Christian assurance is "a Christian believer's confidence that he or she is in right standing with God, and that this will issue in ultimate salvation." (D A Carson, Reflections on Christian Assurance)
This truth of assurance of salvation in Jesus Christ is necessary for God's righteous honor and for our knowing how to live as Christians and how to handle our failures. 1 John 1:5-2:2; 1 John 5:1-13
