How You Can Be Sure You Are Eternally Secure

Sermon Overview
Scripture Passage: John 10:27

When we, as Christians, are sure of our futures, we can concentrate on the present. This is why John 10 is fundamental to the eternal security of the believer.

“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me: And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish, neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no man is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand” (v. 27-29).

This passage reveals eight reasons we can be sure we are eternally secure.

1. Promise

God has promised us eternal security through His Word. Romans 8 claims that nothing can separate us from His love (v. 38-39).

2. Perseverance

God, who first began a good work in us, will complete what He has begun. The Holy Spirit of God is the Convictor, the Convertor, and the Completor. Adrian Rogers says, “The Holy Spirit has never started anything He’s not able to finish.”

3. Predestination

God has predetermined our destiny. Adrian Rogers says, “Your salvation did not begin with you. Your salvation began before this world was swung into space.” If you are called to a new birth in Christ, it is absolutely settled.

4. Perfection

Hebrews 10:14 says, “For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified.” Being a Christian isn’t making monthly deposits to pay God back for His salvation. Jesus paid it all, therefore, we are made perfect forever in God’s sight. It is not a fresh start… it is a new nature.

5. Position

Adrian Rogers says, “Security is not a place; it is a person, and His name is Jesus Christ.” We are positioned with the Lord Jesus Christ, part of His body, sealed with the Holy Spirit.

6. Possession

If we are saved, we already have eternal life. Adrian Rogers says, “Everlasting life is not something you get when you die. Everlasting life is something you get when you believe.”

7. Prayer

Jesus is praying for us, not that we would escape tribulation, but that we will be kept from evil.

8. Power

Finally, we are kept by the power of God. This alone is enough proof that we are eternally secure.

Apply it to your life
Are you sure you are eternally secure? The same God who saved us will keep us if we believe in Him.
