The Glorious Security Of
The Children Of God
Believers Are Secure In Christ Jesus
The Bible teaches eternal security for the TRUE Believer in Christ Jesus.

The Bible DOES NOT teach that we must "maintain" our salvation. No,
my dear friends, it is Christ that saved us (past tense) and keeps us secure. Salvation is HIS WORK from start to finish. Good works are evidence that we have been saved but our good works did NOT save us and cannot keep us saved. It is God alone who keeps us
by His power and for His glory, apart from our own efforts.

The true children of God are, according to the Scriptures,
eternally safe because:

1. They are born not of corruptible seed but of incorruptible. (1 Peter 1:23)

2. His sheep shall never perish. (John 10:28)

3. Their lives are hid with Christ in God.  (Col. 3:3)

4. They are chosen in Him before the foundation of the world. (Eph. 1:4)

5. They are already seated in the heavenlies in Christ. (Eph. 1:3, 2:6)

6. They are sealed until the day of redemption.  (Eph. 4:30)

7. The Lord knoweth them that are His.  (2 Tim 2:19)

8. Having begun a work, He will perform it. (Phil. 1:6)

9. Believers in Christ are already living stones in the spiritual building of God-- of which Christ Himself is the Chief Cornerstone. (1 Peter 2:5; Eph. 2:20-22)

10. They are members of the Body of Christ each with a peculiar function-- without the least member of the Body would not be complete. (See
1 Cor. 12:13-27)

11. They are kept by the power of God (I Peter 1:5).

12. The inheritance is RESERVED for them.  (1 Peter 1:4)

13. God's people are a gift to Christ.  (John 17:6,7)

14. Backsliding is a sin, but "the blood of Jesus Christ, God's Son, cleanses us from all sin." (1 John 1:7)

15. He is able to save to the uttermost. (Hebrews 7:25)

16. They are already "accepted in the Beloved." (Eph. 1:6)

17. Nothing can separate them from the love of Christ. (Romans 8:38, 39)

18. Because He loves them "to the end." (John 13:1)

19. By one offering, He hath perfected FOREVER them that are sanctified. (Heb. 10:10, 14)

20. The children of God are never more reckoned in the first man Adam, but have passed through in the second Man, the Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 5:2-19)

21. They cannot be unborn. (John 3:6-8)

22. Christ DWELLETH in them. (2 John 2)

23. He gives His sheep eternal or everlasting life. (John 10:28)

24. Whom He foreknew, He also predestinates, calls, justifies, glorifies. (Rom. 8:28-30)

25. In their flesh dwelleth no good thing; they are saved by grace (undeserved favor) through faith and not by works. (Eph. 2:8, 9)

26. The gifts and calling of God are without repentance. (Rom. 11:29)
