We draw assurance from the death of Christ, because we realize that it is not possible for Christ to have died in vain (Isaiah 53:9-10).
It is blasphemy to imagine that Christ shed His blood in vain. The intent of Christ in His death cannot be frustrated. He shall see of the travail of His soul and be satisfied. That which God our Savior meant to do by dying shall be done. His precious blood was not wasted upon any! Here is our assurance - "It is Christ that died!"
If Christ died for me, I shall not die. If Christ was punished for me, I cannot be punished. If Christ was condemned for me, I can not be condemned.
