3:12 In whom we have boldness and
access with confidence by the faith of him.
(KJV) It is a privilege to be able to approach
God with freedom and confidence. Thanks be to
Christ, by faith we
can enter directly into God’s Presence through
prayer. We know we’ll be welcomed with open
arms because we are God’s children through
our union with Christ.
2 Tim. 1:12 For the which cause I also suffer these things:
nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom
I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able
to keep that which I have committed unto him against
that day. (KJV) We know that God guards the
souls of His children, until Christ’s second
coming. We know that God is still in control.
No matter what setbacks or problems we face, we
can trust fully in God.
Hebrews 10:22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full
assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled
from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed
with pure water. (KJV) We have wonderful
priviliges associated with our new life in
we have personal access to God through Christ
and can draw near to Him without rituals or
a human priest.
we may grow in faith, overcome doubts and
questions, and deepen our relationship with
is made full by hope. Hebrews
6:11 And we desire that every one
of you do shew the same diligence to the full
assurance of hope unto the end: (KJV) Hope
keeps us from becoming lazy or bored. Like an
athlete, train hard and run well, remembering
the reward that lies ahead (Phil. 3:14).
6:18-19 That by two immutable things,
in which it was impossible for God to lie, we
might have a strong consolation, who have fled
for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before
us:  Which hope we have as an anchor of the
soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth
into that within the veil; (KJV) Two unchangeable
things are God’s nature and His Promise.
God embodies all truth; so, He cannot
lie. Because God is Truth, we know we
can be secure in His Promises. We don’t
need to wonder if He will change His plans. Our
hope is secured and immovable, anchored in God.
God gives His children (John 1:12-13) an unconditional
Promise of acceptance. When you ask God with sincerity
and honesty, to save you from your sins, He will
do it. This truth should give us comfort, encouragement,
assurance, and confidence.
is confirmed by love. 1
John 3:14 We know that we have passed
from death unto life, because we love the brethren.
He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.
(KJV) Love on our part, is the evidence of our
justification and regeneration, not the cause
of them. We each must go to our own heart; if
we find love there to the brethren, let us feel
assured that we have passed from death unto life.
But a person who has no love is still spiritually
dead. We must love one another (Mat.22:37-40).
1 John 3:19 And hereby we know that we are of the truth,
and shall assure our hearts before him. (KJV)
When we feel guilty that we are not loving as
we should, or not doing enough to show proper
love to Christ, we should remind ourselves that
God knows our motives as well as our actions (Eze.11:5).
His still, small voice of assurance is stronger
than the accusing voice of our conscience. If
we are in Christ, He will not condemn us (Rom.8:1; Heb. 9:14-15).
1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love
casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He
that feareth is not made perfect in love. (KJV) If you ever fear for the future, eternity,
or God’s judgment, consider God’s
love. He loves us perfectly (Romans 8:38-39).
We can settle our fears by focusing on His immeasurable
love for us, and then by allowing Him to love
others through us. His awesome love will quiet
your fears and give you confidence.
is the effect of righteousness. Isaiah 32:17 And the work
of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect
of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever.
(KJV) We have God’s Spirit with us now,
for He is available to all believers through Christ
(John 15:26). Only when we allow the Holy
Spirit to work in our lives can we achieve
true peace and fruitfulness (Eze.36:22-38; Gal.5:22-23).
There will be an amazing outpouring of the Spirit
when the worldwide kingdom of God is established
for all eternity (Joel 2:28-29).
is abundant in the understanding of the Gospel. Col. 2:2 That their hearts
might be comforted, being knit together in love,
and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding,
to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God,
and of the Father, and of Christ; (KJV) Our
soul prospers when we have clear knowledge of
the Truth as it is in Christ Jesus. Faith and
knowledge make our soul rich. The stronger our
faith, and the warmer our love, the more comfort
and contentment we will know. The treasures of
wisdom are hid, not from us, but FOR us, in Christ.
These are hidden from proud unbelievers, but displayed
in the Person and redemption of Christ. Beware
of the danger of enticing words. Many are ruined
by the false disguises and dishonest appearances
of evil beliefs and wicked practices! We cannot
be built up in Christ, or grow in Him, unless
we are first rooted in Him, or founded upon Him.
Being established in the faith, we must abound
and improve in it more every day. God will withdraw
this benefit from those who do not receive it
with thanksgiving. Our gratitude for His
mercies is rightly required by God.
1:5 For our gospel came not unto
you in word only, but also in power, and in the
Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know
what manner of men we were among you for your
sake. (KJV) Whenever the Bible is heard and
obeyed, lives are changed! TRUE Christianity is
the power of God to every one who believes. The
Holy Spirit changes people when they believe the
Gospel. When we tell others
about Christ, we must depend on the Holy Spirit
to open their eyes and convince them that they
need salvation (to be saved). It is only God’s
power that changes people. It is never our intelligence
or influence. Without the work of the Holy Spirit,
our words are absolutely meaningless. The Holy
Spirit not only convicts people of their sin but
also assures them of the Truth of the Gospel.

of Comfort and Assurance
Romans 8:35-39 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?
shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution,
or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 
As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all
the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the
slaughter.  Nay, in all these things we are
more than conquerors through him that loved us.
 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor
life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers,
nor things present, nor things to come,  Nor
height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall
be able to separate us from the love of God, which
is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (KJV) Believers
have always had to face hardships in many ways:
persecution, illness, imprisonment, even death.
Any one of these could cause them to fear that
they have been abandoned by Christ. But these
above verses clearly state that it is impossible
to be separated from Christ. His death for us
is proof of His unconquerable love. Nothing can
stop Christ’s constant Presence with us.
The Bible tells us how great His love is so that
we will feel totally secure in Him.
2 Cor. 5:8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather
to be absent from the body, and to be present
with the Lord. (KJV) For those who believe
in Christ and what He has done for us, death is
only a prelude to eternal
life with God. We will continue to live, eternally
with a gracious and loving God. This is great
hope and assurance.
1 John 2:3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if
we keep his commandments. (KJV) The love
of God is perfected in him that keeps His commandments.
1 John 3:24 And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth
in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that
he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath
given us. (KJV) True believers have a personal
and mutual relationship, living in Christ as He
lives in us. This reveals itself in Christians
who keep the three essential commands:
- (1) believe in Christ,
love the brothers and sisters, and
live morally upright lives.
The Spirit’s Presence is
not only spiritual and mystical, but it is also
practical. Our conduct and speech verifies His
1 John 4:13 Hereby know we
that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he
hath given us of his Spirit. (KJV) When we
become Christians God’s children, John 1:12-13),
we receive the Gift of the Holy Spirit. It actually
is God’s Presence in our lives, because the Holy Spirit
His abiding within us is proof that we really
belong to God. He also gives us the power to love
(Rom.5:5; 8:9; 2 Cor. 1:22). We must rely on that
power as we reach out to others. When you do so,
you will gain confidence.
1 John 5:13 These things have I written unto you that
believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye
may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye
may believe on the name of the Son of God. (KJV)
There are some people who just hope that they will receive eternal life. These people
are not secure in Christ. John tells us in this
verse that we can KNOW we have it. Our being certain
and assured is based on God’s Promise that
He has given us eternal life through His Son.
This is true whether you feel close to God or
far away from Him. Eternal life is NOT based on
feelings, but on facts. You can know that you
have eternal life IF you believe God’s Truth.
If you aren’t sure that you are a Christian,
ask yourself: “Have I honestly committed
my life to Him as my Saviour and Lord?”
If you can answer yes, you know by faith that
you are indeed a child of God.
Romans 8:16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our
spirit, that we are the children of God:
(KJV) The Holy Spirit speaks to us deep in our
hearts and souls and tells us that we are God's
of Jesus (Acts 17:31) is the “assurance”
(pledge) God has given that His plan of salvation
is true and worthy of acceptance. The “full
assurance of faith” (Heb.10:22) is
a fullness of faith in God which leaves NO room
for doubt. The “full assurance of understanding”
(Col. 2:2) is an perfect and unwavering conviction
of the Truths of Scripture. It is a joyful steadfastness
on the part of any one believing, that he has
grasped the very truth. The “full assurance
of hope” (Heb. 6:11) is a sure and
well-grounded hope of eternal glory (2 Tim. 4:7-8).
This assurance of hope is the person’s knowing
he/she has salvation. This unfailing and certain
assurance, which believers may gain unto their
own personal salvation, is founded on the Truth
of the Promises (Heb.6:18), on the inward evidence
of Christian graces, and on the testimony of the
Spirit of adoption (Rom.8:16). This assurance
is backed up by the testimony of Scripture (Rom.8:16;
1 John 2:3; 3:14), from the command to seek after
it (Heb.6:11; 2 Peter 1:10), and from the fact
that it has been achieved (2 Tim. 1:12; 4:7-8;
1 John 2:3; 4:16). This
full assurance is the result of faith. Believers may be lacking of it, and are advised
to seek the grace of full assurance (Heb.10:22;
2 Peter 1:5-10). The attainment of this grace
is to be diligently sought. True assurance leads
to abiding peace and joy, and to love and thankfulness
to God. True assurance may in different ways
be shaken, lessened, or suspended, but the belief
out of which it springs can never be lost. Assurance
comes from faith, which is supplied to us by the
Holy Spirit (Gal.5:22-23).
