Ten Advantages to Assurance

"There is no higher privilege than to be a child of God and to know it...

...for assurance brings joy to worship and prayer, and strength and boldness to our witness."

The advantages to assurance:
  1. it offers heaven on earth
  2. sweetens life's changes
  3. keeps the heart from desiring the world
  4. assists communion with God
  5. preserves from backsliding
  6. produces holy boldness
  7. prepares a man for death
  8. makes mercies taste like mercies
  9. gives vigor in Christian service
  10. leads to soul's enjoyment of Christ

(Taken from the summary of Thomas Brooks' work Heaven on Earth: A Treatise on Assurance found in Meet the Puritans by Joel Beeke and Randall Pedersen, pp.98-99, ISBN: 978160178003.)
