Questions Christians Ask (AUDIO HERE)
8 Reasons Why A Saved Person Can't Be Lost
Romans 8:28-30. We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God: those who are called according to His purpose. 29 For those He foreknew He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brothers. 30 And those He predestined, He also called; and those He called, He also justified; and those He justified, He also glorified.
Amos 3:2 (AMP) You only have I known (chosen, sympathized with, and loved) of all the families of the earth; therefore I will visit upon you all your wickedness and punish you for all your iniquities. KJV 2 You only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities.
1. God’s Purpose To Save You Makes You Secure
2. Nothing can separate you from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus your Lord.
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 creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)
3. When you are saved, you are made perfect forever.
For by one offering He [Jesus] hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified. (Hebrews 10:14)
4. Our Lord always finishes what He begins.
Being confident of this very thing, that He [God] which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ. (Philippians 1:6)
Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, to the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and for ever. Amen (Jude 24–25, KJV).
5. You are predestined to be like Jesus.
He gave Himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to cleanse for Himself a special people, eager to do good works. (Titus 2:14)
6. You are in Christ.
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. (2 Corinthians 5:17)
7. You already have eternal life.
He that heareth My word, and believeth on him that sent Me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. (Jn 5:24)
8. The Lord Jesus Christ is ever interceding for you.
I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given Me; for they are Thine. (John 17:9)
