Can I lose my salvation?

Read Ephesians 1:13-14:

 

13 When you heard the message of truth, the gospel [good news] of your salvation [eternal life beginning on earth], and when you believed in Him [Jesus], you were also sealed [A king’s signet ring seal would make a law permanent.] with the promised Holy Spirit.  14 He is the down payment of our inheritance [eternal life fulfilled in heaven], for the redemption of the possession, to the praise of His glory. 

Read Hebrews 12:7:

7 Endure suffering as discipline:  God is dealing with you as sons.  For what son is there that a father does not discipline?  8 But if you are without discipline ​— ​which all receive ​— ​then you are illegitimate children and not sons.                                                                                                                                   

 

Retell the Passage:

 

  • According to Ephesians 1:13, how do I learn about the good news of eternal life?

  • What does Ephesians 1:13 say needs to happen before God permanently marks a person with the Holy Spirit?

  • In the beginning of Ephesians 1:14, who is the down payment on earth for our

       permanent inheritance in heaven?   

 

  • According to Hebrews 12:7, how does God use suffering in the life of a Christ-follower? 

  • Hebrews 12:7 says that God’s discipline is proof of what?

  • What does Hebrews 12:8 state that all Christ-followers will receive?

  • According to Hebrews 12:8, what is a lack of discipline proof of?          

 

Relate the passages:

  • If I can’t earn a relationship with Jesus, who keeps me secure in this relationship?

  • What can I do daily to help eliminate doubt regarding my security as a Christ-follower?

  • What might cause you to have doubts regarding your security as a Christ-follower?

  • How can guilt and remorse over sin give you assurance that you are a Christ-follower?

  • What kind of questions do you have related to feeling secure about you relationship with Jesus?

  • Who do you know who needs to hear this truth, and who will you pray for this week?
