We must not rest without a desperate struggle to clasp the Savior in the arms of faith and say, “I know whom I have believed, and I am convinced that he is able to guard until that Day what has been entrusted to me.”
Do not rest, believer, until you have a full assurance of your interest in Jesus. Let nothing satisfy you, by the infallible witness of the Holy Spirit bearing witness with your spirit, you are identified as a child of God. Do trifle with this. Do not be satisfied with “perhaps” or “if” or “maybe”. Build on eternal truths, really build upon them.
Let your anchor be cast into that which is within the veil, and see to it that your soul is linked to the anchor by a cable that will not break. Go beyond these dreary “ifs”; stay no longer int eh wilderness of doubts and fears; cross the Jordan of distrust, and enter the promised land of peace, where the land ceases not to flow with milk and honey.
