Blessed Assurance is one of the most beloved hymns of the church. It speaks to the mystery of God as “visions of rapture burst on my sight” and “angels descending,” but there is also the reference to the mercy, love and goodness of God, and that is indeed our story.

Sadly, there are those who only have the hope of eternal life but no assurance. There are others who think being as good as someone else qualifies them for heaven. Yes, the believer must accept the gift of God’s pardon through Christ, but it is God who took the initiative. Having the assurance of eternal life is all about trusting God.

The Sunday sermon will include the experience of assurance that changed the life of John Wesley. It happened on May 24, 1738, 282 years ago. Because of this experience Wesley knew he had been forgiven and that he was a child of God. My prayer is that each of us will have this experience and enjoy blessed assurance.

We have the blessed assurance of eternal life if we trust in God. Our giving is a reflection of our trust—a trust that helps us take necessary leaps of faith in our lives. There are so many people who don't know God, and don't know the comfort, peace and assurance that He graciously offers. When we give, we commit to bringing this assurance to others. Thank you for your trust and willingness to lead people to know God and experience His grace through a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
