FOR WE ARE GOD'S WORKMANSHIP

John 10:28-29
NIVI give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father's hand.
KJVAnd 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.
NASBand I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand. "My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand."
John 10:28-29

Commentary   
    No stronger passage in the OT or NT exists for the absolute, eternal security of every true Christian.

MacArthur, J. J. (1997, c1997). The MacArthur Study Bible (electronic ed.) (Jn 10:28). Nashville: Word Pub.

We live a Christian life because we are Christians. We desire to live a holy life, not out of fear of losing our salvation, but out of gratitude to the One who died for us. The doctrine of eternal security does not encourage careless living, but rather is a strong motive for holy living.
 
MacDonald, W., & Farstad, A. (1997, c1995). Believer's Bible Commentary : Old and New Testaments (Jn 10:28). Nashville: Thomas Nelson.

Weekly Memory Verse

I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.
