Good morning everyone! I just wanted to share one more quick Scripture pin today with two very important verses regarding our 100% secure salvation in Jesus Christ! In keeping with the theme this week of rebuking the false doctrine that one can lose their salvation, it is fitting to read the verses that share the glorious truth that our salvation by faith in Jesus Christ is guaranteed by the power of the Holy Spirit. That’s right, God’s Word says guaranteed! Jesus paid for it all when He died for us, and let us never forget that! Jesus is Lord and He is coming back to reign as King of kings and Lord of lords and all those who believe in Him will see Him in all His glory as we enjoy our eternal inheritance in Heaven! Hallelujah!
Don’t ever forget that foundational truth to believing in Jesus! You are only saved by God’s grace through faith in Jesus, not by works (Ephesians 2:8-9), and your salvation is fully secure because Jesus bought and paid for your redemption in full with His Blood! You must personally receive Jesus by faith to be saved (Romans 10:9). To repent means to turn away from sin and turn to God and do His will, which is to believe in His Son Jesus Christ. Once you belong to Jesus through faith in Him, you will be filled with the Holy Spirit which is God’s seal on you guaranteeing your inheritance! Once you belong to Jesus, He will never drive you away, He will never lose you, and He will raise you up at the last day! You can be at peace in your faith in Jesus and rest in full assurance that He has saved you, your salvation is guaranteed by the Holy Spirit, and nothing in all creation can change that!
“Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty. But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe. All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away. For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.”
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God–not by works, so that no one can boast.”
“That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”
The grace and peace of Jesus Christ be with you all!
