ASSURANCE OF SALVATION: PART 1
I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that He is able to guard what I have entrusted to Him until that day.
2 Timothy 1:12
Thankfully, the state of our salvation does not depend on our feelings or actions. Or salvation is kept secure completely and entirely because of God.
We do not earn our salvation by performing well. Our good deeds do not sustain our salvation nor do our bad deeds put in jeopardy. Salvation is designed so good deeds are evidence for it, but Christ's work on the cross is the reason we can be certain our salvation is secure.
There is the power of God in that our security is not based on our ability to hold onto God, but is based on God's ability to hold onto us. As Christians, we have the double protection of Christ grasping onto us tightly and God grasping as tightly with Christ, so no one can snatch us from their hands. Our salvation is as secure as God is powerful.
Heavenly Father, You are an awesome God, and we praise You for Your grace, Your love and Your power. Thank You for sustaining our salvation and guarding our lives, which we have entrusted to You. Amen
Knowing that God will never leave us nor forsake us, we have the security for eternal life to spend with Him. Thank You God for your guidance and love for us.
