1 Thessalonians 1:5
Nothing gives a believer greater joy than having assurance of salvation. The Thessalonians had been shaken by bad actors who sought to challenge whether they had been saved at all. Paul took aim at their uncertainty and sought to persuade them of being chosen by God. By appealing to both objective and subjective grounds, Paul led the Thessalonians to know their election. This message explores the grounds and purpose of personal assurance of election unto grace.
