The Perseverance of the Saints
Those whom God, according to His purpose, calls to the communion of His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, and regenerates by the Holy Spirit, He also delivers from the dominion and slavery of sin,1 though in this life He does not deliver them altogether from the body of sin and from the infirmities of the flesh.
The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me.
~ Psalm 138:8
Most manifestly the confidence which the Psalmist here expressed was a divine confidence. He did not say, "I have grace enough to perfect that which concerneth me-my faith is so steady that it will not stagger-my love is so warm that it will never grow cold-my resolution is so firm that nothing can move it.
been chosen by God (Ephesians 1:4) and saved by His Grace
(Ephesians 2:8-9). My payment for life and liberty has been satisfied
(because He has redeemed me as His own) (Ephesians 1:7). God has
changed the way He looks at me and deals with me (Romans 5:10) and I have
been freed from the law of sin and death (Romans 3:23-24).

Every Christian deserves to know that this promise is for him. The doctrines of TULIP are the only logical, Biblical explanation of how lost sinners become eternally secure saints.
These devotions are not meant to be read at one sitting, which will explain the many redundancies you will find.
Here are some of the web sites, blogs and other resources that we like. Please feel free to suggest others.
We want to help equip the saints with the sound doctrines of our Christian faith. We have grants available for seminary students, pastors and congregations committed to the essentials tenets of God's grace.
