ETERNAL SECURITY - By John Baker



ETERNAL SECURITY
John Baker

Scripture Reading: Romans 8:33-39

A study of salvation would not be complete without a reference to eternal security of the believer. We can have assurance that our salvation is eternally secure. We should realize that we had nothing to do with our salvation in the first place. We are not saved because of who we are or what we have done. It is a gift of God's grace (See Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 4:5, and Titus 3:5). We must then conclude that who we are or what we have done will not cause us to lose our salvation. We receive the gift of salvation by faith through acceptance of God's Word. We also can have assurance, by accepting God's Word.

TThe following references should provide us this assurance:

1. Romans 8:33-39 assures us that nothing can separate us from God's love.

2. Paul explains that we can have assurance in the gospel; "For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance" (I Thessalonians 1:5).

3. Paul's prayer was: "That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto the full assurance of understanding"(Colossians 2:2a).

4. "These things have 1 written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God, that ye may know that ye have eternal life" (I John 5:13).

The believer possesses eternal life (I John 5:13) and his salvation is called eternal salvation (Hebrews 5:9). He has been redeemed by an eternal redemption (Hebrews 9:15). Eternal life is forever, and cannot be lost.
