The mere professor of Christ who is not a possession of Christ, looks for assurance in all the wrong places. He looks to the flesh. He looks to his experiences, his feelings, his faithfulness, his longevity in religion, his knowledge of the Bible, his knowledge of doctrine, and at every thing and in every place and person, except in the one who is the believer’s assurance — THE LORD JESUS CHRIST!
The child of God may from time to time be distracted from Christ, but not for very long.
Every believer has GOD GIVEN FAITH, and the OBJECT of the faith of God’s elect is the LORD JESUS CHRIST!
Without faith there is no assurance, and without assurance there is no view of Christ, and without a view of Christ by faith there is no spiritual life. The child of God continually looks to Christ, while the unbeliever (though religious) looks to himself.
We see our Lord in His Word (the Bible); we see Him in the Gospel (the ministry of the Word); and we see Him in everything that transpires in our life.
The believer’s assurance is in our OMNISCIENT, OMNIPOTENT, OMNIPRESENT REDEEMER!!
