From the bible this week: Assurance

This week in small group at Uni, we were looking at Romans 8:31-39, another dense bible passage. The focus of the study was assurance. How can we be sure of salvation. Paul addresses that pretty well…

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)

BackgroundWe can’t be sure of many things in this world (except death and taxes), but I think it is amazing how much we can be sure of God!

Through this passage, it is also clear to me how connected assurance, grace and election are. I have been called into a relationship with God, chosen since before the world (Ephesians 1:3-14). It is through nothing that I have done that this has happened, but only through what God has done for me (Ephesians 2:8-9). I can be sure of this, because nothing can separate me from his love.

It’s awesome that God is so merciful, and that he loves me!
