Encouraging Words 3/6/10 On "Losing Your Salvation"

From: Love Worth Finding

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to His abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.” 1 Peter 1:3

There are some people who think that you can lose your salvation once you have it. I have one truth that will dispel that idea.

Whether or not you can lose your salvation depends upon how you got it. If you were saved by your good works, then you could lose your salvation by your bad works.

But, God’s Word is very clear on this point. Titus 3:5 says, “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost.”

How is someone saved? By grace. And if it is by grace, then you’re kept by grace. Salvation is not rooted in the merit of man, but in the mercy of God.

Praise God for the regenerating work of His Holy Spirit, for the atoning blood of His Son, and for His calling upon your life.
