Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

August 2, 2010 (calm assurance)

calm assurance

“True spiritual peace is completely different
from the superficial, ephemeral, fragile human peace.
It is the deep, settled confidence
that all is well between the soul and God
because of His loving, sovereign control
of one’s life both in time and eternity.
That calm assurance is based on the knowledge
that sins are forgiven, blessing is present,
good is abundant even in trouble, and heaven is ahead.
The peace that God gives His beloved children
as their possession and privilege
has nothing to do with the circumstances of life.”
- John MacArthur
