"He that believeth on the Son hath Everlasting Life." (John 3:36)--Right now!--No if's, and's or but's about it!--You already have it. You don't have to worry if you are going to have it, or you are going to fall from grace, or you are going to manage to stay saved, or you are going to manage to keep true and then finally be given the reward of Salvation for your faithfulness. Salvation is not a reward! It's not pay, it's not wages! It is a gift that you don't earn by faithfulness or by any kind of works of your own. and that's all there is to that--nothing else, no other way, no righteousness of your own, none of your own good works!--None of these can keep you saved any more than they can save you in the first place! Only Jesus can do it!--"The gift of God is Eternal Life through Jesus Christ, His Son." (Rom.6:23)
A work's Salvation is no Salvation at all!--You cannot be good enough! No matter how many good deeds you do, they won't save you!--"For by grace are ye saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God!" (Eph.2:8,9)--It's impossible to save yourself! You have Eternal Life which is the gift of God, and you cannot lose it, for He will keep you! You are His child!--You're the Lord's forever!
