Sweet Assurance

Hebrews 6:1 (KJV) Romans 8:35 (KJV) 1 Pet. 1:4,5 (KJV)

Have you ever known anyone who has doubted their salvation or possibly have you ever doubted yourself? This happens more often than you think. I know, because it has happened to me.

It has been easy for me to see the fault in myself and think I am not good enough for Jesus, or for Heaven. It is true, I am not. My assurance does not come from the goodness that I do or asking Jesus to save me over and over; it is from what Jesus did, shedding His blood and dying for my sins; "not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God," Hebrews 6:1 "Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?" Romans 8:35 "To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time." 1 Pet. 1:4,5


Lord Jesus, help us to believe in what you did and not in our own goodness; in Jesus name. Amen
