Faith is Assurance!

calvin_slices_01 “For to have faith is not to waver, to vary, to be borne up and down, to hesitate, to be held in suspense, to vacillate- finally, to despair! Rather, to have faith is to strengthen the mind with constant assurance and perfect confidence, to have a place to rest and plant your foot [cf. I Cor. 2:5; II Cor. 13:4].”

J. Calvin, The Institutes of The Christian Religion (3.13.4)
