Eternally Secure? (Part 3) “Is There A Contradiction in the Bible?” (1 John 5:13)
Theme: God’s word can be trusted
Introduction: There is no need for insecurity…that is why John writes, “These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life,…” (I Jn 5:13) So what makes people doubt that they are truly apart of the family of God?
Conclusion: God not only wants us to know we are saved, He wants us to know He has plans to put us into service with and for Him! God doesn’t want us worrying about our salvation, He wants us working out the salvation He has given and secured us in. (Phil. 2:12, 13)
Eternally Secure? (Part 2) “What about the Power, Presence and Penalty of Sin?” (Romans 3:23;1 John 1:9)
Theme: Realizing the Joy and Freedom of Forgiveness
Introduction: One of the major issues today that people have to deal with is this matter of eternal security. Because eternal security in essence means to believe that once you become a Christian you’re always a Christian. But someone asks, “What about the power, presence and penalty of sins I commit now?” It is true we must continue to deal with the power of sin in our lives.
Conclusion: God’s intention before the foundation of the world was ever formed was to defeat the power of sin. He desires to give man the freedom to walk around even where sin is present knowing we are not subject to its power – we are set free because of forgiveness. God provided forgiveness through Jesus alone, so we could be brought into right fellowship with the Father, and the Son, and have the joy of that fellowship. Knowing we are saved and secure in Christ forever!
