Assurance of Faith



Assurance of Faith. The Christian life is an active life. We are called to pursue our faith by holding fast to what the Bible teaches, loving and encouraging one another, faithfully assembling together to worship the Lord, and teaching one another to be faithful to God's commands.

19 Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, 20 by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, 21 and having a High Priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. 23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, 25 not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.

Hebrews 10:19-25, NIV



Assurance of Faith


When the tabernacle was built under the leadership of Moses, the Holiest of Holies was only approachable by the High Priest once a year, when he entered to make atonement for the sins of the people. Christ, through His shed blood on the cross, opened the way to the Holy of Holies forever to His children. Now, we may come boldly before the Throne of Grace and draw near with a true heart in faith through Christ's blood shed for us.


The true miracle of this is often lost upon us, especially in a day when God is portrayed only in the aspects of His love, and not necessarily in His justice and judgments upon man. God is Holy, Righteous and full of Truth; He can not even look upon sin. Because Christ, the sinless God-Man died on the cross to purchase a people for Himself, we can now come before this Perfect, Holy, and Righteous God. As He gazes upon us, our sins are covered by the shed blood of Christ.


How should we think about this? How does this affect our every day lives? Look at the exhortations shown above in Hebrews 10.


1. Draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith.

2. Hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering.

3. Consider one another in order to stir up love and good works.

4. Do not forsake the assembling of ourselves together.

5. Exhort one another.


The Christian life is an active life. We are called to pursue our faith by holding fast to what the Bible teaches, loving and encouraging one another, faithfully assembling together to worship the Lord, and teaching one another to be faithful to God's commands. What is the end result of such a life? We are given full assurance of the  faith we have in Him!


Ponder these verses as you live this day for the glory of God; ask God to help you live with the full assurance of your faith.
