Eternal security

23 Jun

When speaking of whether or not a person can lose their salvation, D. Edmond Hiebert stated, “Well aware of his own weaknesses and failures, the Spirit-guided believer can rejoice in the assurance that his own safekeeping does not depend solely upon his own efforts.” Hiebert then quotes David Smith, “Our security is not our grip on Christ but His grip on us.”

from The Epistles of John: An Expositional Commentary, by D. Edmond Hiebert
