Assurance of God

Assurance of God

“And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before Him.” (1 John 3:19)

Is it possible to know whether or not you are the LORD’s? How can I know whether I am one of God’s elect for whom Christ died?

Yes, you can know. The apostle Peter wrote, “Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall.” (2 Peter 1:10) The apostle John wrote, “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.” (1 John 5:13) The question is, “On what basis may one properly judge himself or herself to be the LORD’s?” Here again, the Scriptures are very clear.

1.) Assurance is inseparably linked to THE TRUTH: John begins by stating, “…hereby we know that we are of the truth.” What is THE TRUTH? It is EVERYTHING that agrees with God, in EVERY attribute, as revealed in His Son Jesus Christ. It is how God is just to justify those sinners He chose from eternity and, in time, came to earn and establish the righteousness necessary for Him to justify them. If you have any disagreement with the Truth as it is in Christ, revealed in God’s Word and you do not bow to the plain teaching of Scripture regarding salvation, redemption, justification, sanctification and glorification in, by, and through the LORD Jesus Christ alone, 1 Corinthians 1:30, then you falsely persuade your own mind and heart that you are a child of God!

2.) Assurance is the effect of the Sovereign and Holy God being satisfied and His Spirit bringing peace to an otherwise guilty conscience because of the redeeming work of Christ: In 1 John 3:20, the apostle writes, “…if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our than our heart, and knoweth all things.” As sinners, our consciences rightfully accuse and condemn us. However, one who is a child of God by Spiritual birth finds comfort in the greatness, power, and promise of God in forgiving and justifying by the redeeming blood and righteous obedience of Christ. God knows what He has purposed for those whom Christ has redeemed and considering that He has made full satisfaction for their sin and brought in everlasting righteousness, He applies the balm of Christ’s work to the heart and brings, once again, peace and comfort. TRUE ASSURANCE IS GOD-WROUGHT IN CHRIST.
