Obtaining Assurance of Your Salvation

The Word of God appears to me to teach, that a believer may arrive at an assured confidence with regard to his own salvation.
I lay it down deliberately that a true Christian or converted person may reach that comfortable degree of faith, that in general they shall feel confident as to the safety and forgiveness of their own soul, shall seldom be troubled with doubts, seldom be distracted with hesitations, seldom be distressed with anxious questionings, seldom be alarmed about their own state. They may have many an inward conflict with sin—but they shall look forward to death, like Paul, without trembling, and to judgment without dismay.
~ J.C. Ryle
