Since therefore brethren, we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way, which he inaugurated for us through the veil, this is, His flesh, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds Hebrews 10:19-24
This morning, the Lord brought the blind gospel hymn writer, Fanny Crosby’s 1873 hymn to my mind, heart, and voice, Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine! O what a foretaste of glory divine! Heir of salvation, purchase of God, born of His Spirit, washed in His blood. This is my story, this is my song, praising my Savior all the day long; this is my story, this is my song, praising my Savior all the day long.
Take some quiet time with God and with a sincere heart in full assurance of your faith in Christ, feed upon this Scripture and hymn in praise, adoration, and thanksgiving to God for His blessed assurance. Put your name in both Scripture and Hymn. Have you been washed in the blood? Oh how blessed the thought, the life, and the forever!
Let this be your story, let this be your song!
