GOD SECURES ME FOREVER
My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.” Again his Jewish opponents picked up stones to stone him, but Jesus said to them, “I have shown you many good works from the Father. For which of these do you stone me?” “We are not stoning you for any good work,” they replied, “but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God.” —John 1027-33
“What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31). We truly are “safe and secure from all alarms” as the song says. As followers of Jesus, His sheep, we have eternal life and we will never perish because no one can snatch us out of the hand of Jesus. Nor can anyone snatch us out of His Father’s hand. They are One and we are eternally harbored by Them.
As followers of Jesus we should not have an insecurity complex. If we truly understand how utterly saved we are through our Lord Jesus Christ then we will experience the freedom in Christ that comes with this knowledge of what He has done for us. We are blessed and eternally so!
As a follower of Jesus do you feel like your world is falling apart? It is not! You are secure in Jesus! Do you feel like God does not love you? That is false! His love toward you is eternal! Are you feeling lonely like nobody cares? It is a lie! He is eternally with those who have trusted Him and He eternally loves and cares for us! Let us ponder who we are in Jesus and what He has done for us. It… is… astounding! Rejoice! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X05R0hr6iWk
Dear Father, thank You that I am safe and secure in Jesus. Oh, may I live like this and experience the freedom You give through the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Your Son. May it be so!
