Its surprising how much you can accomplish if you don't care who gets the credit
These are the words of political and economic promises that a government provides for its citizens. Unfortunately we know all too well that the words of a collective government or individual men are often not to be trusted.
Assurances can be given in good faith and they can be given in bad faith. But any assurance is predicated upon the confidence in the character of the one who makes the assurance.
We can have absolute assurance of eternal life based upon the veracity and the validity of the words of Jesus. "Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life. (John 5:24)
The reality and reliability of the word of God - the living word- the very words of Jesus - provide for us confidence and comfort that we have right now - eternal life. Eternal life is both a term of quality and quantity. It is eternal in its quantity regarding its duration. But we can enjoy the quality of a new life with Jesus right now.
Tomorrow the Grace Line Spiritual Life Conference will take place. The topic is "Assurance." Please pray with me today that the Lord will use this gathering to encourage Christians to have confidence because of the fidelity of Jesus. I also hope that you have confidence in your eternal destiny and enjoy it right now. In fact, why not tell someone else how they can have the same eternal future as you.
Serving Him with you
Until He comes for us,
