“No, never,” says Jesus,….

January 10, 2010

“They shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.”

This does not mean that there will not be dangers. of course. In fact, it implies them; for if Jesus promises that no one will succeed in plucking us from His hands, it must be because He knows that there are some who will try. The Christian will always face dangers—-dangers without, from enemies, and dangers within. Still the promise is that those who have believed in Jesus will never be lost. We may add that the Christian may well be deprived of things. He may lose his job, his friends, his good reputation. Still he will not be lost. The promise, you see, is not that the ship will not go to the bottom, but that the passengers will all reach shore. It is not that the house will not burn down, but that the people will escape safely. James Montgomery Boice’s commentary on Jn 10:28-29.
