Sermons about Assurance
Primary claim: Those who know God walk in the light of obedience to him.
A good man can think that he is saved, but no truly have ever come to know Christ.
Hope is knowing what we are waiting for, and working faithfully until we get there, making hope a very practical matter for the Christian.
Where is true assurance found? This section of Hebrews may be surprising!

The sacraments are like neon signs flashing, "Gospel! Gospel! Gospel!" The purpose of the sacraments, then, is to first continually drive the promises of the gospel deeper and deeper into our hearts in order to sign and seal in our consciences the promises contained in the gospel. Second, the sacraments help us to recognize our heavenly Father’s great goodness toward us so that we may learn to praise and magnify Him more fully. Finally, the sacraments empower and strengthen us for growth in sanctification.
