Do you have the assurance of being saved in Christ despite falling into weaknesses again and again?
How do you know that you are loved and chosen by God?
Simple it may seem, yet the message this week is fundamental to all believers to confirm if they are truly saved in Christ, and to understand the persevering salvation God has given to His children through His supreme grace.
For we know, brothers and sisters loved by God, that he has chosen you, because our gospel came to you not simply with words but also with power, with the Holy Spirit and deep conviction. You know how we lived among you for your sake. You became imitators of us and of the Lord, for you welcomed the message in the midst of severe suffering with the joy given by the Holy Spirit. (1 Thessalonians 1:4-6 NIV)
