Quote of the Week: John 10:28, note 1
John 10:28—“And I give to them eternal life, and they shall by no means perish forever, and no one shall snatch them out of My hand.”
Note 1 on eternal life: “Eternal life (see note 151 in ch. 3) is for the believers’ living. The Father’s hand, by which He chooses in His love according to His purpose (17:23; 6:38-39), and the Son’s hand, by which He saves by His grace for the fulfillment of the Father’s purpose (1:14; 6:37), both of which have the keeping power, are for the believers’ protection. Eternal life will never run out, and the hands of the Father and the Son will never fail. Hence, the believers are eternally secure and will never perish.”
