An incomplete list of Old Testament scriptures guaranteeing the believer’s eternal security:

Numbers 23:19-20 God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill? I have received a command to bless; he has blessed, and I cannot change it. Even Balaam knew we can’t curse what God has blessed.

  1. Psalm 37:28 For Jehovah loveth justice, And forsaketh not his saints; They are preserved for ever. (ASV)
  2. Isaiah 49:15 Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you! God cannot forget his kids.
  3. Isaiah 53:5 But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed. All the punishment went on Jesus. In him you are eternally unpunishable.
  4. Isaiah 54:8 In a surge of anger I hid my face from you for a moment, but with everlasting kindness I will have compassion on you,” says the Lord your Redeemer. Everlasting means everlasting.
  5. Isaiah 54:9-10 “To me this is like the days of Noah, when I swore that the waters of Noah would never again cover the earth. So now I have sworn not to be angry with you, never to rebuke you again. Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the Lord, who has compassion on you. No more anger, no more rebukes. His anger was momentary; his favor lasts a lifetime (Ps 30:5).
  6. Jeremiah 31:33-34 “This is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after that time,” declares the Lord. “I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. No longer will a man teach his neighbor, or a man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest,” declares the Lord. “For I will forgive their wickedness and I will remember their sins no more.” The eternal covenant was signaled in the Garden when God said “I will put enmity between you and the woman” (Gen 3:15). It was echoed in the covenant made with Abraham when God said “I will bless you” (Gen 22:17), and it is signaled here in Jeremiah. There are no ifs in God’s promises to us, no conditions for you to fulfill.
  7. Jeremiah 32:40 I will make an everlasting covenant with them: I will never stop doing good to them, and I will inspire them to fear me, so that they will never turn away from me. Ditto. Incidentally, the fear of the Lord is synonymous with reverential awe (compare Deut 6:13 with Mat 4:10). To fear the Lord is to worship him.
  8. Ezekiel 36:25-27 I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your impurities and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. The “I wills” of God trump the broken promises of humanity.
Eternal Security in the N.T.

An incomplete list of New Testament scriptures guaranteeing the believer’s eternal security:

  1. Matthew 7:11 If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him! God’s gifts are good and he never takes them back (Rom 11:29).
  2. Mark 16:16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved. End of discussion.
  3. Luke 11:13 If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him! God’s “how much more” gifts are good. They don’t come with expiry dates.
  4. Luke 19:10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost. If Jesus is able to save lost sinners, he is surely able to save straying Christians.
  5. John 1:12-13 Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God. A born again child of God cannot be unborn. God does not unchild his children.
  6. John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. His life is eternal, not sporadic. His future is your future (see 1 John 4:17).
  7. John 3:36 Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life. Eternal life is not a distant reward for those who pass the test, but a present reality for those who believe and know the Lord.
  8. John 4:14 Whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life. Jesus is referring to the Holy Spirit (see John 7:38-38). If you have the Spirit you have eternal life. And the Spirit abides with us forever (John 14:16-19).
  9. John 5:24 I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life. And it’s a one-way trip!
  10. John 6:28-29 Then they asked him, “What must we do to do the works God requires?” Jesus answered, “The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent.” There is no deed that qualifies or disqualifies you. You are qualified by Christ.
  11. John 6:37 All that which the Father giveth me shall come unto me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. (ASV) Not now, not ever. God doesn’t make mistakes
  12. John 6:39 And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. The shepherd keeps his sheep.
  13. John 6:40 For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. Eternal life is something to experience now. It’s not a carrot on the end of a religious stick.
  14. John 6:47 Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes has eternal life. (ESV)
  15. John 6:53-54 Jesus said to them, “I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.” Again and again Jesus says the believer has eternal life now and here he repeats the promise of v.40: “I will raise him up.”
  16. John 7:37-39 On the last and greatest day of the Feast, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.” By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified. The indwelling Holy Spirit is the chief sign that we know we are saved. The Holy Spirit abides with us forever (John 14:16).
  17. John 8:35 Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. For-ev-er!
  18. John 10:14 I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me. The responsibility for keeping the sheep lies with the shepherd (sheep aren’t smart enough to keep themselves), and Jesus knows his sheep.
  19. John 10:27-28 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. No one means no one.
  20. John 10:29-30 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. I and the Father are one. Jesus holds you (v.28) and so does the Father!
  21. John 11:25-26 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?”
  22. John 14:16-17 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever—the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. The Holy Spirit is your never-leaving, never-gonna-give-you-up, guarantee.
  23. John 14:23 Jesus replied, “If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.” When God moves in it’s permanent.
  24. John 15:16 It was not you who chose me; it was I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit—fruit that will remain. You have been chosen by God. God doesn’t choose poorly.
  25. John 17:9 I pray for them. I am not praying for the world, but for those you have given me, for they are yours. You belong to God.
  26. John 17:15 My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. You are divinely protected.
  27. John 17:17 Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth. God makes us eternally holy.
  28. John 19:30 When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit. Everything that needed to be done has been done. The work of saving and sanctifying you was finished at the cross.
  29. Romans 1:17 For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.” Righteousness is a gift from God. Even the faith with which we receive it is a gift (Eph 2:8). There was no righteous act that made us righteous; there is no unrighteous act that can make us unrighteous. We stand on Christ Jesus and his righteousness.
  30. Romans 4:6-7 David says the same thing when he speaks of the blessedness of the man to whom God credits righteousness apart from works: “Blessed are they whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered.” Your sins – all forgiven – cannot undo what Christ did.
  31. Romans 4:20-21 Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised. It’s easy to be fully persuaded when you know how powerful and reliable God is.
  32. Romans 5:9-10 Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him! For if, when we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!
  33. Romans 5:11 Not only is this so, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation. Reconciliation is a done deal. You are wedded to the Lord and he doesn’t believe in divorce.
  34. Romans 5:20-21 The law was added so that the trespass might increase. But where sin increased, grace increased all the more, so that, just as sin reigned in death, so also grace might reign through righteousness to bring eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. When we sin his grace superabounds. Nothing we do can undo what God has done.
  35. Romans 6:6-7 For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin—because anyone who has died has been freed from sin. Sin cannot affect the saint’s destiny.
  36. Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Eternal life is a gift, not a wage, and in Christ you have it.
  37. Romans 8:1 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.End of story. Those who seek to condemn the Christian run afoul of God’s glorious promise.
  38. Romans 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you. But if any man hath not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. (ASV) The Holy Spirit is your eternal guarantee. See also 2 Cor 1:22, 5:5.
  39. Romans 8:15-16 For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Your Father will never unadopt you or reject you.
  40. Romans 8:28-30 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified. God did it all.
  41. Romans 8:31 What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? The greatest rhetorical question of all.
  42. Romans 8:33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Yet another definitive promise you can bank on.
  43. Romans 8:34 Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. When you sin, the devil may condemn you, and sour-faced preachers may condemn you. You may even condemn yourself. But Jesus defends you (2 John 2:1)!
  44. Romans 8:35,37 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?… No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. Religion says you’re a failure, doomed to stumble, but God says you are more than a conquerer in Christ.
  45. Romans 8:38-9 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Truly nothing can separate me from the eternal grip of God’s love.
  46. Romans 9:16 It does not, therefore, depend on man’s desire or effort, but on God’s mercy.
  47. Romans 10:9-10 That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. Salvation is now not later, and in Christ you have it.
  48. Romans 11:6 And if by grace, then it is no longer by works; if it were, grace would no longer be grace. You are saved and kept by grace.
  49. Romans 11:18 Consider this: You do not support the root, but the root supports you. You are rooted in Jesus and the root sustains you. Such good news!
  50. Romans 11:29 God’s gifts and his call are irrevocable. This includes the gift of salvation. He’ll never take it back.
  51. 1 Corinthians 1:8 He will keep you strong to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus saves and keeps you.
  52. 1 Corinthians 1:9 God, who has called you into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful. You might not be a pillar of faithfulness, but he who called you can be trusted. He is always faithful.
  53. 2 Corinthians 1:20 For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God. God’s promises are “Yes in Christ.” They do not hinge on you.
  54. 2 Corinthians 1:21-22 Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come. Boomfah! We can’t trust our own guarantees, but surely we can trust his. (See also Rom 8:9, 2 Cor 5:5).
  55. 2 Corinthians 3:9 If the ministry that condemns men is glorious, how much more glorious is the ministry that brings righteousness!
  56. 2 Corinthians 5:5 Now it is God who has made us for this very purpose and has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come. More guarantees.
  57. 2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! And the new will never become the old again.
  58. 2 Corinthians 5:21 God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. We are as righteous as God! How can we improve on that?
  59. 2 Corinthians 6:2 For he says, “In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.” I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation. Salvation is now, not tomorrow.
  60. 2 Corinthians 10:7 If anyone is confident that he belongs to Christ, he should consider again that we belong to Christ just as much as he. You are not your own. You cannot lose what belongs to Jesus.
  61. Galatians 3:3 Are you so foolish? After beginning with the Spirit, are you now trying to attain your goal by human effort? Paul is not saying we can undo the Spirit’s work, but trying to complete what he has promised to complete and will complete is a waste of time.
  62. Galatians 3:26 You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. God’s kids are secure.
  63. Galatians 4:6 Because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father.”
  64. Galatians 4:7 So you are no longer a slave, but a son; and since you are a son, God has made you also an heir. What God has made (you, into an heir) no one can unmake.
  65. Galatians 6:14-15 May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. Neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything; what counts is a new creation.
  66. Ephesians 1:4-5 For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will.
  67. Ephesians 1:7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace. There are no limits to his forgiveness.
  68. Ephesians 1:11 In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will. (NKJV)
  69. Ephesians 1:13 in whom ye also, having heard the word of the truth, the gospel of your salvation, in whom, having also believed, ye were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise (ASV). Sealed = securely saved. See also Eph 4:30.
  70. Ephesians 2:4-6 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus. You are seated with Jesus.
  71. Ephesians 2:7-9 in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast. Everything that saves us is from God and his gifts are good.
  72. Ephesians 2:18-19 For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit. Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household. We have already arrived. Not only are we new creatures, we are new citizens, with all the rights and privileges therein. See also Php 3:20.
  73. Ephesians 3:17-19 And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Love without limit.
  74. Ephesians 4:30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Sealed = securely saved. See also Eph 1:13.
  75. Ephesians 5:29-30 After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it, just as Christ does the church—for we are members of his body. A wonderful affirmation of our secure position in Christ. Jesus doesn’t do amputations.
  76. Philippians 1:6 Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Jesus will finish what he began.
  77. Philippians 3:20 But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ. We are heavenly citizens and will never be deported. See also Eph 2:19.
  78. Philippians 4:19 And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus. This promise includes your need for salvation, overcoming, conquering, continuing, etc.
  79. Colossians 1:12 Giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light. What God has qualified, you can’t unqualify.
  80. Colossians 1:13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, (NKJV). And he will never convey you back to darkness. He will never cast you into darkness.
  81. Colossians 1:27 To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
  82. Colossians 2:9-10 For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and you have been given fullness in Christ, who is the head over every power and authority.
  83. Colossians 2:11-13 In him you were also circumcised, in the putting off of the sinful nature, not with a circumcision done by the hands of men but with the circumcision done by Christ… When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins. Christ made you alive and nothing can undo that.
  84. Colossians 3:3 For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. Your life is hidden and secure.
  85. Colossians 3:4 When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. That’s a promise!
  86. Colossians 3:12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people… God chose you and he did not make a mistake.
  87. 1 Thessalonians 5:9 For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. God keeps his appointments.
  88. 1 Thessalonians 5:10 He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him.
  89. 1 Thessalonians 5:23-23 May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The one who calls you is faithful and he will do it. He will do it.
  90. 2 Thessalonians 2:13 But we ought always to thank God for you, brothers loved by the Lord, because from the beginning God chose you to be saved through the sanctifying work of the Spirit and through belief in the truth. God chose you.
  91. 2 Thessalonians 2:14 He called you to this through our gospel, that you might share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. You have been called by God.
  92. 2 Thessalonians 2:16-17 May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word. It’s not a temporary hope, but an eternal hope.
  93. 1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus. Jesus’ word is the only word that counts. See also Heb 8:6, 9:15, 12:24.
  94. 2 Timothy 1:9 God has saved us and called us to a holy life not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. “Has saved” means it’s a done deal and not the result of something you did.
  95. 2 Timothy 1:12 I am not ashamed, because I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him for that day. We can trust in God’s awesome ability to guard our lives.
  96. 2 Timothy 4:18 The Lord will rescue me from every evil attack and will bring me safely to his heavenly kingdom. To him be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
  97. Titus 1:2 A faith and knowledge resting on the hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time. Our hope of eternal life rests on the promises of a God who never lies.
  98. Titus 3:4-7 But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life. The believer is not saved by what he does, but by what Christ has done for him.
  99. Hebrews 3:1 Therefore, holy brothers, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, the apostle and high priest whom we confess. Jesus our representative will never let you down.
  100. Hebrews 5:2 He is able to deal gently with those who are ignorant and are going astray, since he himself is subject to weakness. Unlike insecurity preachers who minister hellfire and condemnation to those who stray, our high priest is gentle and compassionate.
  101. Hebrews 5:9 And having been perfected, He became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him, (NKJV) Jesus is authoring his salvation story in your life.
  102. Hebrews 6:19 We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It is an “unbreakable spiritual lifeline” to quote the Message Bible.
  103. Hebrews 7:21-22 God said to Jesus: “The Lord has sworn and will not change his mind: “You are a priest forever.’” Because of this oath, Jesus has become the guarantee of a better covenant. (Heb 7:21-22). Not only is the Holy Spirit our guarantee (Rom 8:9), so is Jesus! And it’s his oath on which we stand.
  104. Hebrews 7:25 Wherefore also he is able to save to the uttermost them that draw near unto God through him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. (ASV) Jesus doesn’t do partial, temporary salvations.
  105. Hebrews 8:6 But in fact the ministry Jesus has received is as superior to theirs as the covenant of which he is mediator is superior to the old one, since the new covenant is established on better promises. See 1 Tim 2:5 above.
  106. Hebrews 8:10-12 “This is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after that time,” declares the Lord. “I will put my laws in their minds and write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. No longer will a man teach his neighbor, or a man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest. For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.” When God says he will, he will. God the righteous judge looks on that perfect sacrifice and chooses not to remember our sins.
  107. Hebrews 9:12 He did not enter by means of the blood of goats and calves; but he entered the Most Holy Place once for all by his own blood, having obtained eternal redemption. Our redemption is eternal and secure. (If you could lose it, it wouldn’t be eternal.)
  108. Hebrews 9:14-15 How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God! For this reason Christ is the mediator of a new covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance—now that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant. An eternal inheritance to go with eternal redemption and eternal forgiveness. For other scriptures showing Christ is our mediator, see 1 Tim 2:5, Heb 8:6, 12:24.
  109. Hebrews 10:12,14 but he, when he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified. (ASV) Our status before God is perfect forever, not perfect every time we confess, overcome, repent, do good deeds.
  110. Hebrews 10:17 Then he adds: “Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more.” God is not keeping books. Your future sins have no bearing on his grace.
  111. Hebrews 10:23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. We are kept secure by his faithful promises, not ours.
  112. Hebrews 12:2 Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith. Jesus completes what he starts.
  113. Hebrews 12:24 Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel. For other scriptures showing Christ is our mediator, see 1 Tim 2:5, Heb 8:6, 9:15.
  114. Hebrews 13:5 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” A golden promise!
  115. Hebrews 13:6 So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?”
  116. Hebrews 13:20-21 May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. You cannot break the eternal covenant between God and Jesus, the great Shepherd.
  117. 1 Peter 1:3-5 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade—kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time. We are kept by the power of God!
  118. 1 Peter 1:18-19 For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. Our deeds may prove perishable, but we are not saved by perishable deeds.
  119. 1 Peter 1:23 You have been regenerated (born again), not from a mortal origin (seed, sperm), but from one that is immortal by the ever living and lasting Word of God. [AMP] There is no new birth without a new seed and this seed is imperishable. The seed is not something to possess and possibly lose – it is the basis of our new life.
  120. 1 Peter 2:9-10 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy. What a wonderful affirmation of what God has done for us!
  121. 1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. Having been united with the Lord through faith-based confession, we are eternally purified. As he is so are we in this world (1 John 4:17).
  122. 1 John 2:1 My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have one who speaks to the Father in our defense—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. What happens when we stumble? Our Righteous Advocate intercedes for us!
  123. 1 John 3:2 Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when he appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. The promised future for God’s kids.
  124. 1 John 3:9 No one born of God makes a practice of sinning, for God’s seed abides in him, and he cannot keep on sinning because he has been born of God. (ESV)
  125. 1 John 3:24 Those who obey his commands live in him, and he in them. And this is how we know that he lives in us: We know it by the Spirit he gave us.
  126. 1 John 4:17 We may have confidence for the day of judgment [with assurance and boldness to face Him], because as He is, so are we in this world. (AMP) His future is your future.
  127. 1 John 5:1 Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well. Some poo-poo this idea that we are born again, saying it is barely mentioned in the Bible. Nevertheless, here is it. Jesus said it and so did John because being born again is everything. Once we were not his people, now we are. Everything has changed!
  128. 1 John 5:10-11 Anyone who believes in the Son of God has this testimony in his heart. Anyone who does not believe God has made him out to be a liar, because he has not believed the testimony God has given about his Son. And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. And this new life is eternal.
  129. 1 John 5:13 I have written this to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know you have eternal life. This is not something to wonder or worry about. John writes so that you may know with certainty that you have eternal life.
  130. 1 John 5:18 We know that anyone born of God does not continue to sin; the one who was born of God keeps him safe, and the evil one cannot harm him. Jesus keeps us!
  131. Jude 1:24-25 To him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy—to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen. Jesus keeps me. See also 1 Cor 1:8, Php 1:6, 1Th 5:23-24.
  132. Revelation 3:5 He who overcomes will, like them, be dressed in white. I will never blot out his name from the book of life, but will acknowledge his name before my Father and his angels. In Christ, you are an overcomer and Jesus promises to never blot out your name.
