So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed Acts 19:20 KJV
....For I will hasten My word to perform it.” Jeremiah 1:12b MEV
No message seems to stir up more controversy than that of the eternal security of the believer. Yet I can't see why so many fight such a glorious truth of redemption. Many claim we can lose our salvation or forfeit it. Salvation isn't based upon our doing. We did nothing to deserve salvation, we did nothing to earn salvation, we did nothing to merit eternal life, yet it seems man believes we can undo what only Christ could accomplish.
Eternal life was purchased for us by the Finished Work of Jesus. Christ shed His Blood for us thus procuring our eternal redemption. This redemption is eternal and forever secure because Christ's Blood paid the price in full. Christ Blood is not like the blood of bulls and goats. No, His Blood is precious Blood that washed away the sins of man. Nothing of man or the enemy can cross that Blood line.
When we believed we were born again. We are born again of incorruptible seed. This seed is imperishable. Which means it is eternal in duration. It is not capable of perishing. We are born again for eternity.
In summation, we can have certainty in these uncertain times. We have His Love, His Word, His Righteousness, and our eternally secure salvation that are more than enough. They are all sure and steadfast. We can walk in bold confidence in our relationship with God. We can walk in triumphant victory. What we have in Christ and because of Christ is a sure thing.
