Jerry Bridges – Assurance of Eternal Life

15 Aug

How then can I know that I have eternal life – that I’ve indeed come into a right relationship with God? The Scriptures show us three means by which God assures us that we do have eternal life: (1) the promises of His Word, (2) the witness of the Spirit in our hearts, and (3) the transforming work of the Spirit in our lives. The unsearchable riches of Christ are a treasure trove of blessings given to us. Part of that treasure is the assurance God gives that we do have eternal life. Don’t stop short of availing yourself of His riches until you have that assurance.

J.I. Packer – The Christian’s Future is Assured

4 Jul

If the plan of salvation is certain of accomplishment, then the Christian’s future is assured. I am, and will be, “kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation” (1 Pet 1:5 KJV). I need not torment myself with the fear that my faith may fail; as grace led me to faith in the first place, so grace will keep me believing to the end. Faith, both in its origin and continuance, is a gift of grace (see Phil 1:29).
