God’s Children Have a Faith that Lasts
Construction Zone 12: God's Plan for the Future
Will true believers really be able to hold on to their faith until the end of time?
Yes. True believers really will be able to hold on to their faith because it comes from God and not from them. John 10:28 – "And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand."
This Truth Makes
Eternal life is life that lasts forever. Jesus says that He gives eternal life now, not just that He will give it in the future. Eternal life is something all Christians have, right now! Even though our physical bodies will die someday, our souls have the promise of eternal life.
Eternal life is not just about how long a life it is. It is also about how good a life it is. We can enjoy right things right now. We can live how Jesus Christ lived. Eternal life does not only begin when we die. Eternal life begins the moment God gives us the faith to believe in Jesus Christ.
For God’s children, John 10:28 has some of the most comforting words in the whole Bible. They teach that Christ’s sheep (believers) are held close to Him by His awesome power. Christ’s sheep stay Christ’s sheep forever by the power of God.
