Security

Every time God thinks about you, He thinks about you lovingly. Even if He must chastise you, or allow hardships to come to you, it is love that allows it to come and love that sends it. And we never should be afraid of love, because love casts out fear.

We talk about love, but God proved His love. “But God commendeth [that is, proves] his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).

In Hebrews 7:25 it says, “Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.” The same love that created us is the love that redeemed us and now keeps us.

The best preservative in the world is the love of God. Some people believe in the security of the saints from theological grounds. They take it from a text somewhere. I believe in the security of the saints because God is love and God always keeps that which He loves. We always keep what we love—always.
