The Eternity of Life With Christ

John 10


And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any [man] pluck them out of my hand.

There are some parts of the Bible that are hard to understand. Some of those seem to be saying that someone who has received eternal life can loose it and end up perishing. But this verse shows that isn't true. It also reminds me of:

John 5:24
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

Once we've heard His Word and believed on Him, it's as if we've been moved from one path, the path to condemnation, onto another path, the path to life. And we don't have to worry about getting back onto the path to everlasting death, because there's no way we can.
