Dearly beloved believer, are you bound by the fear of death, not certain you'll be accepted by God? Do you believe He is keeping track of all your sins on His eternal "chalkboard"? Sadly, many believers live in fear, falsely believing they can lose the salvation they so freely received as a GIFT. If there are conditions placed upon a gift, it is not a gift but a loan or payment. A gift has NO stipulations put upon it and God gave salvation as a gift. He is no longer keeping track of your sins on that imagined chalk board. He has broken it in a million pieces. It no longer exists There's been a change in covenants, my friend We are no longer under law, but under grace, God's unmerited favor in Christ. God sent His Son, Jesus, to be our Substitute and Deliverer from condemnation. Jesus, the "Lamb of God," took upon Himself all God's wrath against sin once and for all time. His purpose was "that through death He might destroy him who HAD the power of death, that is the devil, and (Catch this now ) deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage" (Heb. 2:14-15). How could you be delivered from the fear of death IF you could lose your salvation? You could never be free of that bondage. But you ARE free, beloved. If you have received Jesus by faith in His shed blood on your behalf, you are totally forgiven, forever and unconditionally The Judge Himself, your heavenly Father, has justly declared you righteous, a "new creation in Christ Jesus." Give me the chance to convince you that you cannot lose the gift of God. Jesus is the Guarantee Enter into that promised rest God promises all who are His. We received salvation by God's grace. We didn't earn it. We don't deserve it. We do not have to struggle to maintain it. No Jesus, our Good Shepherd, keeps His sheep safe and secure. We are kept, protected, and deeply loved because we are IN Christ. There is no merit involved. It is "by grace through faith"
