Your Favorite Once Saved Always Saved Bible Verses

Recommended Posts

Anyone who believes that they can be saved by their "good" works have fallen from grace (Gal.5:4), and it is by God's grace that we have "been saved" through faith (Eph.2:8). Matt.7:22 describes those who believed that their works would save them as they say to the Lord on the day of judgment, "...Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?" Those who already possess eternal life and are saved shouldn't worry about whether their "good" works/being good enough could earn them the right to go to Heaven. Saved persons don't keep the commandments because they feel that doing so can earn them the right to go to heaven, but keep the commandments because of their love for God (Jn.14:21). And now that we are saved...our life that we live should be lived for God and not to fulfull our fleshly desires. I'm sleepy now because it's past my bedtime. lol :smile

Galatians 5:4 is referring to believers who get stuck in legalism - those who were already living by grace, and then turning to works to earn God's approval. Fallen from grace doesn't mean loss of salvation or unable to be saved.

I don't think it refers to believers per se because Paul specifically addresses those who attempt to be justified by their works (whosoever of you are justified by the law), and no believer believes in justification by works. Paul may have been speaking to a mixed crowd, but he was addressing his statement towards those who are NOT saved (those who try to be justified by the law) as the context shows. "....whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace." Whosoever of you clearly does not refer to believers.
