“My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand.”
–John 10:27-28 NIV
It seems nothing is safe anymore. A buddy of mine had his car broken into a while back. Someone filed a false tax return in my name a couple years ago. I’ve even had a social media page hacked. I’m not sure how that benefits anyone, but whatever. Home security, Cyber security, what about spiritual security. We’ve got it! Jesus says of His sheep, “no one can snatch them out of my hand.” The Holy Spirit gives the gift of faith and by faith we trust that Jesus has paid the price for our sins. That faith locks us into eternal life. It is secure. Jesus says “no one can snatch them out of my hand.” That doesn’t mean we can’t jump out of our own will. Sure we can reject the Holy Spirit, renounce our faith in Christ, but rest assured, no outside force can remove us from the hand of our Savior, Jesus. He is the vine, we are the branches. By remaining in Him, our eternal life is safe and secure. In a world where so much can be taken from us against our will, it’s comforting to know that through faith our eternal life is secure in Christ!
