And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand” John 10:28-29
LIGHT FOR THE NOW: You do not lose salvation
All that God has wrought in Christ is eternal and one of such is salvation. Salvation is eternal. The Amplified Version of John 10:28 says “And I give them eternal life, and they shall never lose it or perish throughout the ages. [To all eternity they shall never by any means be destroyed.] And no one is able to snatch them out of My hand.” This means you cannot lose your salvation. Once you are saved, you are forever saved.
Jesus did not save you to leave you. He says “I will never leave nor forsake you …” So, you have eternal security in Christ. In fact, you have double-eternal security in Christ – Jesus and the Father holding you. Peradventure you fall; it would still be inside their Hands. Hebrews 7:25 (NLT) says “Therefore he is able, once and forever, to save those who come to God through him. He lives forever to intercede with God on their behalf”. This means salvation is eternal. This is because Jesus is the Apostle and High Priest of our confession – making constant intercession for us. He is our Mercy seat. Moral life is good but cannot give you salvation. Morality helps you live a successful life here on earth but has nothing to do with eternity. Salvation is not about what you can do, but it is about what God has done. Salvation is a gift of God to us. All we do is to receive it by confessing Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour. Ephesians 2:8-9 says “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” So, salvation is not acquired by works (self-righteousness or morality) but received by grace through faith (belief). Hebrews 10:14 says “For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.” The word “forever” means eternal. Hence, your salvation is eternal. Hallelujah!
