Eternally Secure? (Part 6) “A Peace of Assurance” (Romans 11:29)
Theme: Dealing with doubt, guilt and Spiritual growth
Introduction: God wants us to be happy in Christ, to enjoy our salvation and grow in His grace. And assurance is absolutely necessary to having peace of mind and soul. As we conclude our series today I want to deal with some of the reasons people get stuck in the spiritual dumps?
Conclusion: The absence of assurance in the believer’s life brings about doubts, fears and keeps us focused on the frustrations that keep us from enjoying that peace of assurance God has given to each of us who have accepted His gift of eternal life in Christ.
It is the Lord’s desire for us to rest in His assurance of our salvation and know “… the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.” (Rom 11:29)

Eternally Secure? (Part 5) “Will All the Real Christians Please Stand Up” (1 Cor.2:14,15; 3:1,15)
Theme: How to tell if you are really saved
Introduction: The question of eternal security must be asked only in relation to true believers. But, it is often difficult to tell whether someone is indeed a true believer or not. It makes you want to say, “Will the real Christians please stand up!” The Bible tells us there are only three kinds of people. And everyone on earth today falls into one of these three categories.
Lets examine each of these three categories and see which one we each fit in today.
Every person on earth today is in one of these 3 categories. Which category are you in today?

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!
