Second Timothy 2:22-26 (ESV) --

So flee youthful passions and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart. Have nothing to do with foolish, ignorant controversies; you know that they breed quarrels. And the Lord's servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil, correcting his opponents with gentleness. God may perhaps grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth, and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, after being captured by him to do his will.

comment Does 1 Corinthians 9:27 contradict the doctrine of “The Perseverance of the Saints?”
@Ovi: John MacArthur gave an answer in a Q&A session at a conference (Ligonier, 2008) that's germane to questions re assurance, also. The question was actually about legalism, but here's a link to the portion where Dr. MacArthur briefly discusses the characteristics that distinguish "real" Christians from nominal Christians. You can find more resources on assurance from Ligonier here.

comment Does 1 Corinthians 9:27 contradict the doctrine of “The Perseverance of the Saints?”
Hi @Ovi. Having a lack of assurance re one's own salvation is actually a very common issue. Lots of books have been written on the subject. If you want to learn about assurance, here's a quick article from John Piper to start with. Beyond that, answering specific question about such doctrines is what C.SE is for, so you might want to ask some more questions. Ciao.
