I gave them eternal life

28 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all[a]; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. 30 I and the Father are one.”  John 10:28-30.

There is nothing that can separate us from God’s love.  When our faith and trust is placed in Jesus Christ no one can snatch us out of the Father’s hand.  It is the grace and love of God that keeps us with the Lord.  It is not based upon our strength or our power.  We cannot lose our salvation.  As we seek the Lord and draw near we can know in our hearts with confidence that our righteousness before Him never changes.

One of the great lies of the enemy is to try to get us to believe that we have done something that can separate us from God.  If this was the case then salvation would be based on works and the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ would mean nothing.  But our salvation is not based upon works.  Our salvation is based upon faith alone.  Now works should be a result of genuine faith in Jesus Christ.  Rest this day in the knowledge of God’s love for you.  Take your focus off yourself and simply place it upon the Lord and His grace.
