Safe and Secure

“To think of Christ’s ransom and believe it insufficient for eternal, secured life is to have never known it at all.” –Kenneth Kuykendall

Eternal life is, of all things, eternal. And to think differently of it is to view the atoning work of Christ as an insufficient ransom for sins. We have been bought with a price, we are not our own. So, if it is possible to lose salvation, it would only come from the premise that God could not properly pay for His purchased possession. It is to think that God has rejected the death of His Own Son. Such a notion is blasphemy in the sight of God.

You may say, “But I have sinned after my salvation.” And you would be right; but the forgiveness of sins is all-encompassing. God has forgiven us, in His Son, all sins past, present, and future. If we could lose our salvation, then that would mean we can pluck ourselves out of the hand of God. To be released from His grip would mean that we are stronger than God Himself.

God sufficiently “seals” us with the Spirit of Promise – the Spirit being the Holy Spirit, and the promise being that of eternal life. Security, therefore, is not up to you, it is up to God.  You did not save yourself, and you cannot keep yourself. To think of Christ’s ransom, and believe it insufficient for eternal, secured life is to have never known it at all. The believer in Christ is everlastingly safe and secure.
