Eternal Security

Eternal Salvation 01

We can no more get “unborn” again than we can get unborn. We can no more undo our “spiritual” rebirth than crawl back into our mother’s womb.

What’s done is done.

We can “abuse” it, take it for “granted,” or try to “run” away. The flame may flicker, or even “appear” to have been completely “doused” through rebellion.

And in some cases, like the “prodigal” son, severely and for a very long while.

Better of course if we never doubted or abused the “grace” of Jesus. But when we do, and who doesn’t, our Father will no more “cut” us off than we would “disown” our own children.

The Scriptures are “replete” with this promise.

Paul wrote, “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:38-39)

And Christ himself put it like this: “I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand.” (John 10:28-29)

We, or our prodigals, may “appear” to have burned ourselves to the ground. We may even be “convinced” that we have gone too far to ever again be on “fire” for Christ.

Yet once “lit,” no amount of “bad” behavior can fully “extinguish” the flame of God’s “eternal” security.

God has His ways. The Holy Spirit always keeps a “pilot” light on.
