John 10:28-30 NIV 2011
“I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.”
Jesus answered the question asked by the Jews, John 10: 24b ,“If you are the Messiah, tell us plainly.” The gift given to all who believe in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross is eternal life. This echoed Jesus’ words in John 3:15, “that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him.” He said the sheep and the shepherd will not allow anyone to be taken. All who believe in Christ are secure in the hands of the Father. Jesus Christ gives everlasting life to all who come to Him.
“Faith Is the Victory” is a hymn I’ve sung many times. The chorus begins with those words, it is then repeated and ends with: “Oh, glorious victory that overcomes the world.” As a follower of Christ, I have victory daily because of my faith in Him. I love Jesus’ words affirming no one can snatch me from His hand. I do feel an urgency to pray for those that don’t know Jesus right now. I will not perish because I have been given the gift of everlasting life through Jesus Christ.
How will we share Jesus Christ with others?
Saved and ready to share,
