Scripture: John 6:37 NASB “Safe At Home”
“All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will certainly not cast out.” John 6:37
The thing that separates Biblical Christianity from all other systems of religion is that Biblical Christianity rests everyone’s hope on the finished work of Christ. Everything other than Biblical Christianity is built on a person’s works. Biblical Christianity is built on Christ’s work.
It is because of that that Christians believe in Christ alone. Systems that hold that a people can “lose” their salvation are false systems. Any system that holds that a person has to “persevere” to the end to be saved is a also a false system. How can anyone believe that they have eternal life if it can be lost or maintained to the end of their earthly life? If eternal life can be lost, it would be an oxymoron. It would actually be moronic, non-eternal eternal life. Eternal life that has to be maintained is the same as eternal life that can be lost. How can anyone who honestly reads the Word of God be fooled into this kind of thinking? I don’t know.
Are you trusting yourself or are you trusting Christ for salvation? Isn’t it better to just trust Christ alone? Are you safe at home?
If you are, you will find that you are choosing life (Deut. 30: 19)!
A friend of mine tells me he has a list of of 67 verses that give assurance of salvation. I don’t know if there are that many or not. But I do know that there can be no assurance of salvation unless Christ paid it the entire cost of our salvation. Try starting with John 5:24 and 1 John 5:13 and use your cross reference software or a Thompson chain reference to come up with more.
The purpose of the “Choose Life” is to pick a positive help out of the One Year Bible (OYB) reading plan for the day. There is always something positive in the Word of God to cheer us and give us strength. For more on today’s reading, check out my One Year Bible blog: Bread And Circuses
