Eternal Security of the Believer
January 21 | Taken from a message by Adrian Rogers
No one has ever been physically born twice. Have you ever known anybody that has been born twice physically? And nobody has ever been born twice spiritually. That’s the reason we believe in the eternal security of the believer.
No where in the entire Bible will you find a place that describes anyone being saved twice. You can’t find it! That would be similar to going out to almost six billion people on the face of the Earth and trying to find one who’s born twice physically. It can’t be done. Once you come into the family, you’re in the family.
Now there are times when I disappointed my parents. There are times when my Father had to chastise me, but I am a Rogers. I will be a Rogers for all eternity. Even when my body ceases, when I die and go down in the grave, there’s no way that I can ever be anything else than what I was when I was born. No way!
And spiritually, when we are born into the family of God, our names are written in the Lamb’s book of life and there’s a completion that is done. It is fixed. Jesus said to rejoice that your names are written in the book of life. A birth is a completion. It is done.
