Assurance of Grace and Salvation

What is Assurance of Grace and Salvation?

Temporary believers and other unregenerate people may deceive themselves with futile and false hopes and unspiritual presumptions that they are in favour with God and in a state of salvation, but their hope will perish.[1] Yet those who truly believe in the Lord Jesus, and love Him in sincerity, and endeavour to walk in all good conscience before Him, may be certainly assured in this life that they are in the state of grace; they may rejoice in the hope of the glory of God, knowing that such hope will never make them ashamed.[2]

Adoption

What is Adoption?

God has granted[1] that, in and for His only Son Jesus Christ,[2] all those who are justified[3] share in the grace of adoption. By this they are numbered with and enjoy the liberties and privileges of the children of God. They have His name put upon them,[4] and receive the Spirit of adoption. They have access to the throne of grace with boldness, and are able to cry, 'Abba, Father!'[5] They are pitied, protected, provided for, and chastened by him as by a father, yet they are never cast off, but are sealed to the day of redemption,[6] and inherit the promises as heirs of everlasting salvation.[7]
