Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Are we Secure in Christ?
Can anybody take away what God has given us? Can we lose our salvation?
Romans 8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
God answers this question empathetically in Romans 8:38-39 with a loud NO!
For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
It is the everlasting God (Rom 16:26) with his everlasting power (1Tim 6:16), who can not lie (Tit 1:2 in hope of eternal life which God, who cannot lie, promised before time began,) who has made this promise of eternal life.
John 3:15-16 “that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
Safe in God’s Hand
Once God has saved you there is absolutely NOTHING that can separate you from God.
John 10:28 And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.
This should bring peace to the troubled heart. We are in the hands of God and there is no safer place to be. No matter what the world throws at us we are more than conquers
Romans 8:37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
