“Security of the Believer” John 5:24

Belief, acceptance, and faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ is our security.   We are secure in our salvation from sin, and darkness.  We are secure in our future, and our destination.  We are secure in our destiny.  We know where we are going, and who paid the way.  We did nothing to deserve these things, but the Word says they are ours, and they are ours now, when we believe.

 Jesus said, ” I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word, and believes Him who sent Me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life.’”  (John 5:24)
We may live a long life, and do many great things for the Lord after we believe the Word, and accept Jesus as our Christ, and our Redeemer, but it will not be counted as earning our way to heaven.  We cannot.  The price has been paid.  We will do things that are right, and things that are good, but that is because we will come to know the love of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  “How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God. And that is what we are.” (1 John 3:1)  We shall do right, because that is who we are.  That is how we think.
There is no waiting until judgement to see if we have qualified for passage to heaven, because the Word says “by one sacrifice He has made perfect forever those who are being made holy.”  There will be nothing to judge.  He made us perfect in Father’s eyes.  That is grace.  That is love.
Let us rest secure in our salvation.  Let there be no doubt.  We are a child of God when we believe Him who sent Christ.  That can never be changed.
Blessings and love to you, and yours, God’s Beloved.
