Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
O what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.
Perfect submission, perfect delight!
Visions of rapture now burst on my sight;
Angels descending bring from above
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.
Perfect submission - all is at rest,
I in my Savior am happy and blest;
Watching and waiting, looking above,
Filled with His goodness, lost in His love.
This is my story, this is my song;
Praising my Savior all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long.
Fanny J. Crosby
Beware of despairing about yourself.
You are commanded to put your trust in God,
and not in yourself.
- St. Augustine -
We can know with absolute confidence that we have the life of God within us.
This confidence is not based on inner feelings or outer signs.
Rather, this assurance is founded upon
the promises of a faithful God and His inspired Word.
It depends not on the amount of our faith
but on the object of our faith - Christ Himself.
- Kenneth W. Osbeck -
Have a blessed Lord's Day, precious friends!
