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.
The song “Blessed Assurance,” written by Fanny Crosby, so beautifully lays out just that – the blessed assurance referred to in Hebrews we are all afforded in Christ. What a wonderful truth to know that I am an heir of that wondrous gift called salvation – washed of my sin with the precious blood of Christ. No matter what I may lose or gain, no matter my circumstance, no matter my state of mind, no matter what…I can draw near to the Lord with a heart FULL of assurance…blessed assurance that Jesus is MINE. I have assurance that this one thing CANNOT be taken from me. Truly this is my story and it ought to cause me to praise MY Savior all day long.
“Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
O what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.”
“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.”
