Blessed Assurance

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine!

Heir of salvation, purchase of God,

Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.

Refrain:

This is my story, this is my song,

Praising my Savior all the day long;

This is my story, this is my song,

Praising my Savior all the day long.

Perfect submission, perfect delight,

Visions of rapture now burst on my sight;

Angels, descending, bring from above

Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.

Perfect submission, all is at rest,

I in my Savior am happy and blest,

Watching and waiting, looking above,

Filled with His goodness, lost in His love.

Fanny Crosby 1873

Fanny Crosby was blind physically but not spiritually. She had faith and full assurance in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ to save her and wrote many hymns in her lifetime that are still sung and are a blessing to many over 100 years later.

Our prayer is that you who are reading this have the same assurance of the forgiveness that can be yours through faith in Jesus. It is as simple as admitting you have sinned, believing that He paid for your sins, asking Him to forgive you and change your life. He will come into your life and your life will change as you grow in the knowledge and understanding of His Word.

Hebrews 10:22 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.
