Safe and Secure in the Hands of Jesus

“I give them eternal life!” What a promise!  Do you recall those precious words of John 3:16? One would read from John 3:16 that God sent His Son that whosoever believes in Him would have eternal life and not perish!!! God sent us a Savior, giving His very own Son so that through Him we could have eternal life. Jesus came to give His life in order to give us life, here now and hereafter forever!!!  WHAT A SAVIOR!

“And they shall never perish.”  What a 2nd promise!  As a sinner, we completely deserve to perish yet as born again believers we have the promise that this will never happen to us.  Like the Apostle Paul, we can make the statement “to die is gain!”

If however you are reading this and you have not been born again I plead with you to do so.  While a person should not live in fear, I would tell you to live in fear as Matthew 10:28 “And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.   2 Peter 3:9 says, “The Lord is not slack concerning [His] promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.”   Do not put off accepting the Lord for presently you will perish in your sins!

“Neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand!” What a 3rd promise! We are as safe as the strength of His hands thus we are completely safe in the hands of Jesus!! What a SALVATION!

Ponder and praise God today for your SALVATION that has been provided by and then protected by our incredible Good Shepherd!

Verse to DATE the Word on October 28 (10/28) is John 10:28. It says, “And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.”
