STT 084 – Where Do You Look for the Assurance of Salvation (HC LD 29, QA 78-79)?

Do you struggle with the assurance of salvation? If so, where do you look expecting to find comfort? Do you look at yourself or at Christ? Tune in for encouragement to look to Christ for the assurance of salvation. God has given wonderful places to look!

To learn more about the sacraments and how to benefit from them, check out these GREAT resources: Heidelberg Catechism 65-82; Westminster Shorter Catechism 88-97 and Westminster Larger Catechism 161-177; Belgic Confession articles 33-35.
