“And I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand” (John 10:28).
The confidence of eternal life is based on the work of God accomplished through his Son and not our works of righteousness. To be born again in Christ Jesus, through faith, settles the matter once-and-for-all. The very nature of salvation demands that it be a once-and-for-all experience. Forty-three times the New Testament speaks of salvation as “eternal” or “everlasting” life. If you can have it and then lose it, salvation would be something other than eternal and everlasting. It would have to be “temporary” or “conditional.” We can be thankful for His protective hand.
