“Can one be absolutely sure in this life of eternal safety? That question was asked by Queen Victoria, after attending a service in St. Paul’s Cathedral. Her remarks were published and read by a man named John Townsend who sent her a note and assured her “I know that we can be absolutely sure now of our eternal life.” He included suitable portions from the Bible to support his beliefs. One verse read “…if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. About two weeks later, Townsend received a letter from the Queen, in which she wrote, “Your letter of recent date I received…I have read the portions of Scripture referred to. …I believe in the finished work of Christ for me and trust by God’s grace to meet you in that Home…” We can know now.
