Eternally Secure in Christ

God declares that there is no spot in us (Song of Solomon 4:7). We belong to the King, and we are "all glorious within" (Psalm 45:13). This is abso lutely true. It is God who called us. It is He who justified us. Those He justified, He glorified (Romans 8:30). This is an absolute: in God's eyes, we are glorified.

Absolutely, we are justified, sanctified, and glorified. We are growing every day of our lives to be more like Him. We are complete in Christ, we are mature, and we are seated above. He did it, we believe it, and that settles it. Grow in this absolute. Rebound if you fail; isolate the sin, forget it, and don't worry about it. He took care of it. If you don't know and understand the absolute truth of eternal security, read the Bible. Study the character and nature of God. Once you begin to grasp this reality, you will be so blessed.

Remember this: If you say you have not sinned, you make God a liar. But if you confess your sins, He is faithful and just to forgive you and to cleanse you from all unrighteousness (see 1 John 1:8-10). Eternal security doesn't give us a license to sin. What it gives us is an ability to live in a process without being hypocritical, inwardly pretending.
