Assurance In The Lord Alone

One of the greatest benefits of the Truth we have in Christ Jesus is assurance, of being made right with God. We can know in our hearts that our standing with God does not depend on us but on Christ Jesus and what He has accomplished for us. What a wonderful and extraordinary relief this is!

We are never left guessing and wondering if we have been good enough to tip the scales of judgement, to our favor. The Apostle Paul put it clear and concise, in Romans 5 verse 1:

“Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ”. {NKJV}

A relationship of separation because of our sin, has now been changed to a wonderful relationship of friendship, understanding and peace, which provides us with considerable assurance and peace of mind. We can also live with the wonderful assurance and relief, that we will not face God’s outpouring of wrath, on the day of judgement. Christ Jesus paid, that debt for us to escape on our behalf.
As a wonderful old song says: “Jesus paid a debt He did not owe, He paid a debt I could not pay, to wash our sins away”. to restore us to right standing with God The Father.
The beauty of what Christ Jesus did for any ‘whosoever’ John 3 verse 16:

So what do we need to prove to God so that He will accept us?
Absolutely Nothing! God excepts us on the basis of a relationship with His Son Christ Jesus, who proved everything.
“Amazing love how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me”

God Bless.
O.F.J.
