ETERNAL SECURITY IN CHRIST

 
ETERNAL SECURITY IN CHRIST

And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. John 10:28-29

 

Thomas Manton.

…they may pluck joint from joint, but they cannot pluck the soul from Christ that is once really implanted into him.

 

Matthew Henry.

Those are safe who are in the hands of the Lord Jesus. The saints are preserved in Christ Jesus: and their salvation is not in their own keeping, but in the keeping of a Mediator. His Father’s power is likewise engaged for their preservation, Christ now appeared in weakness, and, lest his security should therefore be thought insufficient, he brings in his Father as a further security. Observe, The power of the Father: "My Father is greater than all"; greater than all the other friends of the church, all the other shepherds or ministers, and able to do that for them which they cannot do. Those shepherds slumber and sleep, and it will be easy to pluck the sheep out of their hands; but he keeps his flock day and night. He is greater than all the enemies of the church, all the opposition given to her interests, and able to secure his own against all their insults; he is greater than all the combined force of hell and earth. He is greater in wisdom than the old serpent, though noted for subtlety; greater in strength than the great red dragon, though his name be legion, and his title principalities and powers. The devil and his angels have had many a push, many a pluck for the mastery, but have never yet prevailed, The Lord on high is mightier. The interest of the Father is in the sheep, for their sake His power is engaged for them: "It is my Father that gave them to me", and he is concerned in honour to uphold his gift. They were given to the Son as a trust to be managed by him, and therefore God will still look after them. If this be so, then none (neither man nor devil) is able to pluck them out of the Father’s hand, not able to deprive them of the grace they have, nor to hinder them from the glory that is designed them; not able to put them out of God’s protection, nor get them into their own power. Christ had himself experienced the power of his Father upholding and strengthening him, and therefore puts all his followers into his hand too. He that secured the glory of the Redeemer will secure the glory of the redeemed. Further to corroborate the security, that the sheep of Christ may have strong consolation, he asserts the union of these two undertakers: "I and my Father are one, and have jointly and severally undertaken for the protection of the saints and their perfection." He proves that none could pluck them out of his hand because they could not pluck them out of the Father’s hand.

 

Jeff Maxwell.

Christian’s are enclosed and encompassed by two sets of hands, Christ’s and His Father’s working harmoniously together for their security and safety. None, indeed nothing, shall pluck us out of their hands or separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus: and for our further consolation, "The eternal God is our refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms" Deut 33:27 Not only the mightiest hands hold us, but the everlasting arms bear us up as well.
Amen
