( The answer is nothing. You also can never lose your relationship with God, if you truly have embraced Jesus as Lord, and Savior. Romans 10:9-10 )
Watch a sermon on this doctrine by Charles Stanley, video.
Below are some notes from Dr. Stanley on the sermon..
As Christians we need to have a firm conviction regarding our eternal security.
But sometimes even after we’ve placed our trust in Jesus Christ as Savior, we may have doubts about our salvation. The problem could be that we can’t remember a specific time or place that we surrendered our lives to Christ. Or perhaps we’ve committed sins that cause us to question whether we were truly saved. To settle this matter in our hearts, we need to understand what God’s Word says about salvation and eternal security.
As long as we have doubts about our eternal security, three major issues will occur:
We’ll be unable to enjoy the blessings God has given us.
Our service for the Lord will be limited because we won’t trust Him to enable us.
We may be guilty of misleading others in their faith.
