In this weekly installment from J. D. Greear, he talks about the paradox of assurance of salvation. As one who struggled mightily for assurance J. D. speaks with some experiential and pastoral wisdom. Here’s an excerpt:
God won’t keep us in the dark. His Word, after all, is “a lamp unto my feet.” But we’re usually asking for a spotlight to show us the end of the path. And what God gives us is enough for the next step. He is patiently drawing you forward, wooing you to him as he develops your faith. Don’t confuse his patience with his absence. Take the step of faith, and he’ll meet you there.
