Can you lose your salvation?
August 1, 2012
“I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand.”
Perhaps one of the most well-known stories in the Bible is that of Noah and the ark he built. God told Noah he was going to send judgment upon the earth in the form of a flood. But because Noah and his family were righteous, God told Noah He would save them and gave him plans to build a boat.
So on the day that the flood was to come, God said to Noah, “...come into the ark” (Genesis 6:18). And that tells us, of course, that God was inside that ark. The only way Noah and his family were going down is if God went down. And God wasn’t going down!
I’m so glad God didn’t say, “Noah, I’ll put you a few pegs on the outside of that boat. And if you hang on faithfully till the end, you’ll be secure through the storm.” No, He said, “Come into this ark.” And Noah may have fallen down many times in the ark, but he never fell out of the ark!
Now Peter tells us that Jesus is our ark of safety (1 Peter 3:20). And if we are in that ark—in Christ—we can never fall out. So if you’re in Christ, rest assured that though you may stumble, you can never fall out of His grace, and you have eternal life forever!
REST IN THE ASSURANCE THAT IF YOU’RE IN CHRIST, YOU CAN NEVER LOSE YOUR SALVATION!
