“I have written these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life.” -I John 5:13

Eternal Or Temporary

Most of the time you never question it, but every once in a while you have a nagging suspicion that maybe you just think you’re saved. Is salvation a game of chance with eternal consequences? First, God doesn’t want you to have to play a guessing game for the rest of your life. Evidently, early Christians struggled with the same questions, so John tried to answer their fears and nagging doubts about salvation. “The one who has the Son has life,” wrote the apostle -I John 5:12.

In His Hands

Second, Jesus didn’t come to give you week long life; He came to give you eternal life. If someon could take it from you, it wouldn’t be eternal, would it? Third, if the status of your salvation was based on your performance, none of us could ever be sure. But just as you were saved by grace, you are kept safe by grace. Your security is in Jesus and your faith should rest on God's ability not yours. He is able!

Consider this: All your sins were in the future when Jesus gave His life at Calvary. So, if you’ve got Jesus, you’ve got all the life you’ll ever need! You are secure in His hands. He will never leave you or forsake you (see Heb. 13:5). You can rest knowing that you are His.

Bottom Line

You’re heavenly Father never forgets you or the fact that you will forever need Him. If you struggle to believe that, ask God to increase your faith. He wants you to rest secure in Him. 

Peace & Blessings,

J.A. Maxwell, Minister
