You’ll Never Get to the End of God’s Love
By Rick Warren
“I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand.” John 10:28 (NIV)
When I took my kids to the Grand Canyon when they were young, my two boys were especially wiggly. I held on to their hands as we walked up to the edge, and they wanted to let go. There was no way I was letting go of their hands! As their father, I loved them too much to let them go.
After you put your hand in God’s hand, there will be times you’re going to want to let go. But no matter how your feelings or circumstances change, God is steady, sure, and faithful. When you become a Christian, he promises to keep you saved until heaven.
Jesus said, “I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand” (John 10:28 NIV).
There have been times in my life when I have said, “God, it’s not convenient to be a follower of Jesus right now. I’d like to let go for a little bit.” God says, “Well, you might want to let go of me, but I’m not letting go of you. You are in my hand, and no one can snatch you out.”
I had a person tell me one time, “Well, you can't be snatched out of God's hand, but you can jump out.”
How big do you think God’s hand is? Do you think it’s so small that you can get to the edge of it? His hands are bigger than the universe. You’ll never get to the edge of God’s hands. You’ll never get to the end of God’s love.
Once you are born again, you can’t be unborn. Once your name is written in the eternal book of life, it’s written in indelible ink and the blood of Christ. Once you’re saved, you are always saved.
You don’t know what your future holds or how many years you’ve got left. You might lose everything, but you are never losing your salvation. The world could go mad, but you have a loving Father who is working things out for good.
You can have all the confidence in the world with the assurance that the One who holds you in his hand is never letting you go.
