We insure ourselves, our property, even our lives against many things, from fire and theft, to natural disasters. The whole industry is founded on man’s need to know that if things go bad, they are going to get some form of recompense. But for as well-meaning and important as such instruments are, the one thing that insurance policies cannot give is protection. Though they may claim protection, they cannot prevent and protect against calamity. In fact, with recent changes in weather systems and patterns, insurance companies sometimes find it difficult to keep up with the payouts due to their clients who suffer losses incurred by natural disasters. However, beloved child of God, Jesus wants you to know that He not only insures your losses, He can also protect you from loss. For,

“With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26

“These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.” 1 John 5:13

The apostle John opens for us the first item that is assured in Jesus’ insurance plan, eternal life. The one who calls himself, numerous times, the one whom Jesus loves, tells us irrevocably, unequivocally, that our eternal salvation is assured in Jesus. What blessed assurance that gives us who believe.

In life, sometimes the cares of the world get to us and we lose sight of what is truly important. Like gamers who get caught up in their virtual world, this transient world can pull our attention from what truly matters, what is eternal; and when we come to our senses, we worry that we, in our distraction, have stepped away from favor and fellowship with God and may have lost our salvation. But beloved, Jesus wants you to know that the most important thing has already been secured because,

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16

And we have eternal life not because we are good in and of ourselves but because Jesus died our death to sin and in His rising, conquered death, so that we who believe, who are in Him, are therefore also dead to sin and alive in Christ.

“Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? We were buried therefore with Him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead, by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.
For if we have been united with Him in a death like His, we shall certainly be united with Him in a resurrection like His. We know that our old self was crucified with Him in order that the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. For one who has died has been set free from sin. Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with Him. We know that Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has dominion over Him. For the death he died he died to sin, once for all, but the life He lives He lives to God. So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.” Romans 6:3-11 [ESV]

But for some, this may not be as comforting as it should be because they fear that our Father may be letting them in begrudgingly. They think that their sins, though forgiven, still offend God. My friend, if that is you, our Father has this to say,

“As far as the east is from the west,
So far has He removed our transgressions from us.” Psalm 103:12

“For this is like the waters of Noah to Me;
For as I have sworn
That the waters of Noah would no longer cover the earth,
So have I sworn
That I would not be angry with you, nor rebuke you.” Isaiah 54:9

So therefore, “Their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.” Hebrews 10:17

And all this is because the blood of Christ gives us remission of all sins.

“Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.” Matthew 26:27-28

So beloved, you are the beloved of our Father and He is not angry with you, nor will He ever be. In fact, He loves you so much, He wants to bless you. For Jesus tells us,

“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these will he do, because I go to My Father. And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.” John 14:12-14

So the third thing that Jesus assures, is everlasting blessings.

But more than this, Jesus is not only able to insure us and assure us, He is also able to protect us. For the apostle Paul, when he was imprisoned, said,

“For this reason I also suffer these things; nevertheless I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day.” 2 Timothy 1:12

Beloved, what have you committed to Jesus? Your heart? Your life? Your health? He can and He will keep, protect, hedge them all until that day when we are with Him once again and there is no need for protection, for our Father Himself has sworn,

“In righteousness you shall be established;
You shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear;
And from terror, for it shall not come near you.
Indeed they shall surely assemble, but not because of Me.
Whoever assembles against you shall fall for your sake.” Isaiah 54:14-15

“No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
You shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
And their righteousness is from Me,”
Says the Lord.” Isaiah 54:17

And if you have suffered loss, scattered from what was yours, our Father has promised this to you,

“Then the Lord your God will bring you to the land which your fathers possessed, and you shall possess it. He will prosper you and multiply you more than your fathers.” Deuteronomy 30:5

“Also the Lord your God will put all these curses on your enemies and on those who hate you, who persecuted you.” Deuteronomy 30:7

“The Lord your God will make you abound in all the work of your hand, in the fruit of your body, in the increase of your livestock, and in the produce of your land for good. For the Lord will again rejoice over you for good as He rejoiced over your fathers,” Deuteronomy 30:9

“And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.” 1 Peter 5:10

Indeed, Jesus assures you of things to come, Jesus will protect you and Jesus will restore to you all you have lost and make you strong, firm and steadfast, so that, as the apostle John says, so that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.

And in return, Jesus demands no more a premium from us than for us to believe. Our premium is faith.

Beloved, to protect themselves, insurers sometimes place an “Act of God” clause, making our Father seem like a mean monster, out to destroy our lives. But the truth could not be further from that. The true act of our Father is to send His only begotten Son to die for us, so that He can insure us, assure us and protect us. Jesus is your comprehensive and complete insurance and assurance from anything and everything that life has to throw at you.

And if by chance you are hearing this for the first time and would like to partake of His assurance that is freely given, then say this prayer with me.

“Heavenly Father, thank You for loving me so greatly that while I was still a sinner, You sent Your only begotten, Jesus, to die on the cross for me so that in so doing, I, who believe, may, with Him, die to sin, and rise to life in You. Thank You Father that through Jesus’ shed blood on the cross, I now receive full remission of sins, now and always and because of this, You are no longer angry with me, instead You judge me clean, whole and pleasing to You. Thank You for the assurance of everlasting life, health, wholeness, peace and provision that You have given me and I accept all the blessings that You have in store for me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”

Come to Jesus today and come under His comprehensive and complete insurance for He gives this not for payment, but because He loves you.
