READ: Romans 5:1-5 and 1 Peter 1:6.
As a SAVED Christian you can NEVER lose your salvation. It is a free gift from God, which He can never take back. No matter what trials, tribulations, and persecutions you go through in this life, it does NOT affect your standing in Christ.
There are so many Christians today who live in fear of losing their salvation. Perhaps they have heard it said from false teachers that “if you keep sinning then you are not really saved!”, or the Christian believes that God is still angry with them for some reason (and that He didn’t really save them in the first place) and will send them to Hell anyway, or, most probably, they have not read and studied the true word of God and don’t know what the Bible actually says. Whatever the case may be, it is unscriptural to say or think that a Christian can lose their salvation once they are saved.
Below are just 50 reasons why a saved Christian can never be lost (unsaved) again. There are many other verses for each of these 50, and indeed many other reasons, but this should be enough to show you that you are eternally secure in Christ once you are saved.
