John 10:28-30 NLT
I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one can snatch them away from me, for my Father has given them to me, and he is more powerful than anyone else. No one can snatch them from the Father’s hand. The Father and I are one.
The question isn’t “Can I lose my salvation?”
It’s “Have I truly received it in the first place?”
We receive Christ into our lives today – in greater and renewed awareness of the Holy Spirit guiding and teaching and comforting us – even moment by moment.
Is Christ alive in my life, not just my words, but in my actions and deeds? How about my thoughts, am I taking them captive and resisting evil even in my thoughts?
There is always room for growth as long as I don’t stop looking for things that need to be repaired/renewed/healed in me. I need to be careful if I am tempted to aim my sword at others instead of focusing it squarely on cutting out the disease from within my own life.
