113 All About Assurance

In Episode 113, we talk about assurance which is the flip side of the eternal security coin. Can we be certain that we will go to Heaven? God gives us assurance of salvation when He makes it clear that He has accepted Christ's sacrifice as payment for our sins.

The Bible tells us to make sure we know Christ and are right with God, but it also tells us not to feel too safe. It's important not only to be sure we'll be saved that's why the Bible gives us faith in the Lord's redemption. God instructs us to be confident, according to a contextual and methodical analysis of the Bible.
