“According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame…” –Ephesians 1:4
The fact that Jesus Himself paid for our salvation is enough to substantiate the doctrine of eternal security. However, there are other reasons that confirm salvation is everlasting. One of those glorious truths is discovered in the position of the believer.
In salvation, the Holy Spirit of God regenerates us. This spiritual “rebirth” places us into the family of God. Paul said, “According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will” (Ephesians 1:4-5).
We must remember something, we are in Christ, this is our position. We are buried with Him in death, risen with Him in life, and seated with Him in the heavenlies. This wonderful and divinely-orchestrated reality is the working of God before the foundation of the world. Those who are in Christ Jesus cannot be plucked out, voted out, or forced out. Once you are in, you are in all the way, for the “duration” of eternity. Your child may leave your home, disown your name, and forget your love but he cannot undo his birth! Well glory! Neither can those who are born from above! This is eternal life.
