We claim to be Christians, followers of Christ, children of God, citizens of Heaven, we say that we are saved and that we have received salvation by faith in Jesus Christ, but how do we know? And when we say these things how is it that we can speak with such confidence? Well the answer really is found in one word and that word is “Assurance”. This morning we join Pastor David Crespo as we continue in our topical studies through the book of 1 Peter as he talks to us about why we are assured of our salvation. Let’s listen in!
1 Peter 1:10-12
10 Of this salvation the prophets have inquired and searched carefully, who prophesied of the grace that would come to you, 11 searching what, or what manner of time, the Spirit of Christ who was in them was indicating when He testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ and the glories that would follow. 12 To them it was revealed that, not to themselves, but to [a]us they were ministering the things which now have been reported to you through those who have preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven—things which angels desire to look into.
a. 1 Peter 1:12 NU, M you
