When we think about our eternity and the assurance of our salvation, oftentimes we lack certainty. We usually fall into one of these three categories: trying hard to obey and please God, never sure; feeling good about my connection to God, mostly sure; my life going well, so I’m sure enough. This is because we lean on our own feelings and on our experiences. Our confidence on the Day we stand before God can’t be rooted in any of these things. It has to be rooted in something else.
