Eternal Security


In the 21st Century, security affects everyone.  We hear about safeguards ranging from Home Land Security to keep our country safe to home security to protect us and our property, and every sort of security in between.  Of course this refers to our physical security.  Even with the best types of security that are available, there are breaches that result in property loss and death.


What about our Eternal Security?  What is The Lord doing to keep us safe and insure that we will spend eternity with Him?  Yes He does help physically, yet we have spiritual assurance of our future with Him.


John 3:16 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.


Scripture tells us that when we believe in Jesus as our Savior, eternal life begins.  The definition of eternal is "lasting or existing forever".  When something lasts forever, it cannot be stopped.


1 John 1:2 The life was manifested and we have seen, and bear witness, and declare to you that eternal life which was with the Father and was manifested to us.  John continues to let us know that those of us who have accepted Jesus' gift of salvation, are assured that eternal life is in us while we are still alive.


John 10:28-29 And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of my hand.  My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father's hand.


Jesus reassures us that when we receive the Holy Spirit, we can rely on Jesus promise to keep us as His absolute possession.  What better reassurance can a believer have than to know how God keeps us close to Him.


We often think of this doctrine as "Once Saved Always Saved".  This is a truth that gives those of us, who are believers, absolute assurance that we can depend on spending our future with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
