• Salvation’s Assurance

      Ephesians 1:5-8   I am accepted because of Christ, never because of me. My focus is not on how well I fulfill my obedience, but on Him who is my righteousness, on Him who works in me so that I may become all He has ordained me to become.
      2 Corinthians 5:17   I am a new creature in Christ. What I used to be is dead and has not power to resurrect itself because it has passed away
    Ephesians 2:8-9 2 Timothy 1:9 Romans 5:8 Romans 9:16 John 1:13 James 1:18 Romans 9:1 Jude 1:24 My salvation was His idea, His plan, not mine. I didn’t know how to make Him save and accept me, and I don’t know how to make Him keep me from falling. But my salvation and His keeping me are not His two plans but His one plan that He has purposed to perform. Since He was able to accomplish the first part of His plan when I was His enemy, why should I doubt His ability and desire to finish all of His plan for me now that I am His son? I rest in His ability to bring about His will toward me.
      1 Corinthians 1:8-9 Romans 16:25 2 Corinthians 1:21 1 Thessalonians 3:13 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 1 Peter 1:5 1 Peter 5:10 2 Thessalonians 3:3   God is willing, able, faithful, and desirous to establish, keep, and preserve me. I can not ultimately frustrate His purpose for it is my deepest desire that He be Lord of my life. And He has no lack of ability in being able to keep me. Since He saw my every choice from the beginning of time, He foreknew all the choices I could make after His salvation. He knew even my most foolish, stupid and rebellious choices but that did not prevent Him from accomplishing all that He has purposed and determined for me.
