John 6:37 (New King James Version)

37] All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out.

Romans 8:16 (New King James Version)

16] The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God

Resting In The Finished Work Of Christ

The scriptures make it plain that believers have a right to know we are secure in the faith, and that our security rests on the finished work of Christ, not on anything this world has to offer. CS Lewis wrote "Christ offers something for nothing. He even offers everything for nothing. In a sense, the whole christian life consists in accepting that very remarkable offer. There is no other way to happiness for which we were made."

Salvation brings the indwelling of the Holy Spirit to believers. When the crushing moments of life in this world come, when the waves get so high that we are afraid we can never find our footing again, the Holy Spirit brings comfort and the assurance that we are on the solid rock that cannot be moved.

FOR TODAY: No man knows how bad he is until he has tried very hard to be good.
