William Smith– Assurance: Resting in God’s Salvation

by | Jun 17, 2019 | Equipping You in Grace, Featured

On today’s Equipping You in Grace show, Dave Jenkins and Bill Smith have a wide-ranging conversation on assurance and ministering to those dealing with doubt, guilt, shame, and condemnation, along with his book, Assurance: Resting in God’s Salvation (P&R, 2019).

What you’ll hear in this episode

  • In what way assurance is not a matter of information but a matter of trusting the character of the Lord.
  • How Christians should deal with the enemies of our soul that are not only relentless but dishonest and play both sides of sin against God’s people.
  • How biblical counselors should deal with challenging issues related to assurance.
  • How biblical counselors should help Christians with issues like guilt, shame, and condemnation.
  • How the biblical passages on doubt help strengthen Christians to give them not less confidence in Him, but more confidence in the Lord.
  • Some markers Christians can look for to see growth in sanctification in themselves and others.
  • Why it’s so important for Christians to take the long view on their sanctification.
  • How Christians should handle their failings to keep in step with Christ.
  • How focusing on the love of God in Christ alone helps Christians remember all that Christ has done for them.
