Verse of the Day (April 21, 2020) #BMSeminary – The doctrine of eternal security teaches that God is able to complete the good work of eternal life that He has begun in every believer (Phil. 1:6). The eternal security of the believer is guaranteed by the person and work of God. He is true and just, and cannot deny Himself. Therefore anyone who has eternal life, has it forever. God promises that no one can ever be separated from His love (Rom. 8:33–39). Illustration: Some argue that this doctrine leads to antinomianism, that is, allowing Christians to live in sin. This charge, however, denies the very nature of salvation, which involves union with Christ and death to sin (cf. Rom. 6). But to the extent that a Christian fails to serve God, his reward may be lost, though he will be saved from everlasting wrath (1 Cor. 3:15). Application: The Christian is saved and secured by faith, but in love and gratitude to Christ will seek to faithfully serve Him. (First Reference, Gen. 15:6; Primary Reference, John 10:28; cf. 2 Cor. 6:17.) (KJV Study Bible, HarperCollins)
