“To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that FADETH NOT AWAY, RESERVED IN HEAVEN FOR YOU” (I Pet. 1:4).
THE BELIEVER IS KEPT BY THE POWER OF GOD
“Who are KEPT BY THE POWER OF GOD through faith UNTO SALVATION.. .” (I Pet. 1:5).
THE BELIEVER IS BORN OF INCORRUPTIBLE SEED
“Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of INCORRUPTIBLE, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever” (I Pet. 1:23). If a person could lose his salvation then the seed would be corrupted. The Bible says, however that the seed is incorruptible.
THE BELIEVER RECEIVES SALVATION AS A GIFT FROM GOD
“For the wages of sin is death; but the GIFT of God is ETERNAL LIFE through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Rom. 6:23). Do we receive a gift and then try to work for it to keep it?
THE BELIEVER WILL BE A PART OF THE ETERNAL HOUSEHOLD OF GOD
“For we KNOW that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we HAVE a building of God, an house not made with hands, ETERNAL IN THE HEAVENS” (II Cor. 5:1).
If a Christian dies, he KNOWS that he will be a part of the eternal household of God.
THE BELIEVER HAS EVERLASTING CONSOLATION
“Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us EVERLASTING CONSOLATION and good hope through grace” (II Thes. 2:16).
How could we have everlasting consolation if we could lose our salvation?
