Blessed Assurance

Verse 1 

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine

O what a foretaste of glory divine

Heir of salvation, purchase of God

Born of His Spirit, washed in his blood.


This is my story, this is my song, 

Praising my Savior, all the day long;

This is my story, this is my song, 

Praising my Savior all the day long. 



Verse 2

Perfect submission, perfect delight, 

Visions of rapture now burst on my sight; 

Angels, descending, bring from above

Echoes of mercy, whispers of love. 

Verse 3

Perfect submission, all is at rest, 

I in my Savior am happy and blest, 

Watching and waiting, looking above, 

Filled with His goodness, lost in His love



Romans 8:27-28

 27 And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. 28 And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. 



1. Is it possible to love God, if the Holy Spirit is not living in us? 

2. How is God working even now to do good in your life?

3.  When did God's purposes not match what you wanted, how do you thank God for what He did now, that you did not like then? ? 


Comment and Encourage


First, I want to thank you for being part of our online community. Second, I wanted to ask if you would consider supporting the work of CBF through our online giving portal? We know that many of you are struggling financially. We would never ask anyone in such a situation to give to us rather than care for their family. We believe that our calling is to steward God's gifts well. Asking someone to neglect their obligation to family in the name of financial giving would be irresponsible on our part. Having said this we also acknowledge that many of us have been blessed by God even in this time of hardship. We are asking that those who have been given much would consider helping to support the work God is doing through our church. We are a small community of believer and given our size this time of hardship will continue to affect the work that we are able to produce in the coming weeks and possibly months. We can assure you that anything given to CBF will be used to glorify God in the Naples area. Would you please consider partnering with us in the work of the Gospel? If you feel God leading you to partner with us, just click on the "Support CBF Naples" button below. When you get there scroll down and you will find a "donate" button.

7 Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
