Sermons on Assurance
… such as truly believe in the Lord Jesus, and love Him in sincerity, endeavouring to walk in all good conscience before Him, may, in this life, be certainly assured that they are in the state of grace; and may rejoice in the hope of the glory of God, which hope shall never make them ashamed. – WCF Chapter 18 Paragraph 1
Christ, the Servant of God prophesied of in Isaiah, came to set things right. In his first and second coming he will establish justice on earth. Unlike anyone else, however, he will do this in gentleness and patience. In his triumphant reign he will not break the bruised reed or put out the smoking flax.
