The Bible teaches us that we can have eternal life. It says, “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son. That whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but have eternal life” (John 3:16 ASV).
We have what? We have eternal life! What does it mean to have eternal life? It means we have life that will last forever!
There are some Christians that do not fully understand the truth about salvation. How can we claim to have received the grace of God and turn right around and say we can lose our salvation?
I understand the concern of those that are afraid that some people will come to Christ for cheap grace. That may be especially true when it is taught that eternal life cannot be lost by how we live. I think those people that feel this way are missing the whole point. The point being that those that would come to God that way cannot receive salvation. We must give him our lives in order to be born again. A person seeking God for a self centered reason will not find Him. He is found when we die to ourselves.
