Genuine Christians worry they are not in a true relationship with Jesus, forgiven of their sin, loved by God, and headed for eternal life. Struggling with assurance of salvation can steal your joy and sink you into despair. Knowing you are saved will make you soar with joy. This issue is not talked about much in churches, and it needs to be. J.D. Greear takes this issue head on, and nails it.
