Assurance Is Good For You

So far is the doctrine of the certainty of grace from being the mother of security and the midwife of licentiousness, that there is no greater incentive to true piety than a vivid sense of the love of God and of his benefits. This so powerfully lays hold of and inflames the mind that is all on fire with a reciprocal love of him from whom it receives so great favors and has been so highly preferred over others left the common mass of perdition.
