A lot of people from different walks of life asked me this question. They’re too many to the point that I lost count! They are often bothered by the thought that;
“What if I lose my salvation because I sin too much and I feel like there’s no way out? I fall short of His glory countless of times! Every time I try to get up and do things the right way again, the pleasures of the world are more enticing than the kingdom of God and I feel like I am of the world! I feel like I really belong here! But I know the truth. I know the truth in my mind. I can site verses to prove that what I feel is wrong but it seem so real to me! I am just so afraid to go to hell. Can you enlighten me, please? Can I lose my salvation? Please tell me no, please!”
So okay, NO. You can’t lose your salvation my friend!
But first, let us dig deeper on what seems to be a surface question. Before you ask, “Can I lose my salvation?” ask yourself first if, “Am I a true Christian?”
A lot of people claimed that they are Christians because they do an explicit list of requirements to prove it, but what does being a Christian really mean?
Christian means ‘little Christ’. So considering that being a Christian is to become Christ-like, ask yourself this question, “Am I living like how Christ lived on this earth?” Then quietly ponder on that.
And if your answer is:
“Yes! I am living like how God intends us to live! Yes, I fail, but my salvation isn’t based on my good works but by grace through faith.”
Then welcome to eternity, my friend!
