Rest in Assurance

We live by faith, not by sight. Faith in Christ pleases God. It is not works, but one work, that is required, a faith that would enable you to rely on Christ and from such faith to lead a Christ-like life. God promised to be with you, and his Son died to make that possible. He who has called you is faithful, and if you trust him he will save you. Your faith will remind you to whom you truly belong. In Jesus Christ, go boldly to God. Rest in assurance.

I came down from heaven to do what God wants me to do, not what I want to do. Here is what the One who sent me wants me to do: I must not lose even one whom God gave me, but I must raise them all on the last day. Those who see the Son and believe in him have eternal life, and I will raise them on the last day. This is what my Father wants. John 6:38-40

Yes, I am sure that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor ruling spirits, nothing now, nothing in the future, no powers, nothing above us, nothing below us, nor anything else in the whole world will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39

In Christ we can come before God with freedom and without fear. We can do this through faith in Christ. Ephesians 3:12

Now may God himself, the God of peace, make you pure, belonging only to him. May your whole self – spirit, soul, and body – be kept safe and without fault when our Lord Jesus Christ comes. You can trust the One who calls you to do that for you. 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24

The world and everything that people want in it are passing away, but the person who does what God wants lives forever. 1 John 2:17

About admin

I am a depraved, morally bankrupt wretched sinner through and through. I’ve attended church sporadically most of my life, haven’t spent a minute in seminary and only recently gave the Bible more than a cursory review. I’ve attended exactly one theology class and I dropped out of that. However, in spite of my moral infidelity, I’ve come to be filled with the Holy Spirit. I’ve learned my salvation isn’t the result of what I do, but rather what Jesus has done on my behalf. I didn’t find the Holy Spirit, He found me. And in our relationship I have invited Him to change me, to use me for His purpose, to conquer my will with His own. Praise the Lord, for even an unworthy, chronic sinner like me can experience and give testimony to His glory!
