Bible Reading: Psalm 84
Key Verse: Verse 11 - “For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.”
Key Words: the LORD will give grace
I am amazed by those who believe they can lose their salvation by not “holding on”, “backsliding”, “giving in” to sin.
My question is, Why would God give you enough grace to save you but not enough to keep you?
A man in Ireland was very much under conviction, but somehow he couldn’t give in to the Lord. Over and over the Devil would make him believe he just couldn’t hold on. Nearby was a watermill. Pointing to it a Christian friend said,
“What turns the wheel today?”The only answer there was to give was, “The stream.” That is like God’s grace. The same grace that saves us today is flowing to keep us saved tomorrow – and the next day – and the next day – on until Jesus comes.
“The stream,” replied the Irishman.
“And what will turn it tomorrow?”
Again he answered, “The stream.”
“And the day after?”
And so it is.
What to do:
✞ Have assurance that the same God Who saved you by grace will by grace keep you!! John 10:25-29.
