Good day beautiful people
I hope that this post meets you well? Today’s write up is going to be very brief but I want to remind and encourage you that once you become a child of God, you will ALWAYS be a child of God. Just to clarify I believe that a child of God is someone who has accepted Christ as their Lord and Saviour (believes that Jesus is God in flesh appearing. Christ is the Son of God and the only way to heaven is through God the Son). You may be asking why I believe this and I will share a few passages which I believe confirm that once a person is saved they cannot lose their salvation (once saved always saved).
[Side-note: Not all people who profess to be Christians are actually believers. The passage below confirms this. Matthew 7:21 ~ “Not everyone who calls out to me, ‘Lord! Lord!’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Only those who actually do the will of my Father in heaven will enter ].
Some points to remember
1. Jesus died once and for all: The blood He shed on Calvary was not in vain. Advocating that one can ‘lose’ their salvation is a way of indirectly saying that the blood of Christ is not enough. The blood of Christ covers all sin (past, present and future) for those who accept His salvation plan and acknowledge their need for Him.
1 Peter 3:18 ~ Christ suffered for our sins once for all time. He never sinned, but he died for sinners to bring you safely home to God. He suffered physical death, but he was raised to life in the Spirit.
2. Every good and perfect gift comes from above: God gives without measure. He loves us so deeply that He did not withhold His one and only Son from us (Romans 8:32). If we who are sinful know how to give good gifts to our children how much more God who is without sin and is perfect in ALL of His ways. God is not like man, as most humans tend to only give gifts to those they believe are deserving. Neither will He ask us to return a gift because we mess up. The Bible reminds us that once we confess our sins God is faithful and just to forgive (1 John 1:9).
Matthew 7:11 ~ So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask Him.
James 1:17 ~ Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above; it comes down from the Father of lights [the Creator and Sustainer of the heavens], in whom there is no variation [no rising or setting] or shadow cast by His turning [for He is perfect and never changes].
3. God is a covenant keeping God: If God says He will do something He will do it! He has the final say and He will never go back on His word. So if God’s word say’s that all who believe Jesus is Lord will have eternal life, then that is so. You’re not saved one minute and then lost the next!
Romans 10:9 ~ If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
Hebrews 6:18 ~ “So God has given both his promise and his oath. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie. Therefore, we who have fled to him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us.”
Romans 11:27 ~ “And this is my covenant with them, that I will take away their sins.”
^^^ (Romans 11:27) God’s covenant to every believer is that He WILL take away their sins. His covenant can never be broken or revoked.
A verse to remember…
Romans 11:29 ~ “For God’s gifts and his call can never be withdrawn.”
^^^This is a beautiful reminder that God’s gifts can never be withdrawn! One can never lose their salvation.
I hope you all have a glorious and productive week. Always hang onto the truth that you’re greatly loved by God. Continue to stay safe.
