Sunday Morning Sermon: Assurance of Salvation through Justification | Romans 5:1 | Steve Wainright
“Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” –Romans 5:1
If you misunderstand the doctrine of justification, you cannot have the joy of someone who has full assurance of their salvation. Justification happens at a particular point in time…it’s a completed action! It is only because of God’s grace that we are justified (declared righteous, declared to be in a right standing with God).

Listen to Morning Audio: “Doubts” | Luke 7:18-23
“Though the fig tree should not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines, the produce of the olive fail and the fields yield no food, the flock be cut off from the fold and there be no herd in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the LORD; I will take joy in the God of my salvation.” -Habakkuk 3:17-18
Adverse situations often bring doubts because we lose sight of the bigger picture–that God is sovereign and in control, working all things together for our good.
The best way to get doubts resolved? Go to God’s Word!
