Power of Assurance

“How can we possibly believe the promises concerning Heaven, immortality, and glory, when we do not believe the promises concerning our present life?

And how can we be trusted when we say we believe these promises but make no effort to experience them ourselves? It is just here that men deceive themselves.

It is not that they do not want the Gospel privileges of joy, peace and assurance, but they are not prepared to repent of their evil attitudes and careless life-styles.

Some have even attempted to reconcile these things and ruined their souls. But without the diligent exercise of the grace of obedience, we shall never enjoy the graces of joy, peace and assurance.”
