Jesus dint come to sell tickets to heaven(Salvation), he came to restore our relationship(True Salvation) with the Father destroyed due to our rebellion in Sin against a Holy God!
So then What is Salvation? What does it mean to be Saved?
It was never about entering a place Heaven after death!!
It was the relationship with the Father which we can have right here while we are still alive!
People need to change their thinking about what Salvation means!
For me heaven, is to behold the presence of God!
And i so desperately want to see God, commune with Him, but Sin separates us in our understanding of God. It was through Christ, we know God more and more.
As we call upon Christ, the Holy Spirit will lead us into the truth about God!
The one who is more intimate, submissive to God’s will in his Life is nearer to God(Heaven).
So if our attitude and needs and wants are heavenly/noble, we are more in line with how we will live in Heaven(The Presence of God)
But if our attitude and needs and wants are earthly/selfish/corrupt, we would ourselves never be comfortable in Heaven even if we were allowed.
Through our constant rebellion and practice of sinful/selfish/corrupt thoughts and actions, we made ourselves unlivable in Heaven. We will loathe heaven if we in Sin were ever to go to Heaven!
So for me the question “Can a Christian lose his Salvation” is moot.
Because let me think why are you asking that question in the first place, is it you are trying to justify living in sin a bit more and then try to come to God, that attitude itself is Wrong.
God is gracious, lets then surrender ourselves to Him now!
He will never drive away those who come to him in submission.
If you think you are losing your salvation, just come to the feet of God and surrender your life and he will accept you!
God will not drive away even the worst sinner, So lets make all the effort to surrender our lives and make him King over our lives.
Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved. Acts 4:12
Salvation then is only found in a relationship with Christ. With the communion of the Holy Spirit who will convict us of our Sin and lead us into the truth about God!
If Salvation is Relationship, it takes two for a relationship right!
God would never reject those who come to him, its us who reject him!
The devil too knows God and his law but it cannot surrender to Him, his law.
Christ says he will write his law upon hearts, when we submit to Him and give the keys of our lives to him, he will impress his thoughts upon our Hearts and sanctify us.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
The more you run away from God, you are making your heart numb to the words of God to the point you will become more cold and rebellious. God is gracious and gives us a new day to renew our relationship with Him, and with every chance we have, we should strive to be closer to Him, surrendering every aspect of our lives to Him.
There is a rebellious evil Spirit at work continusouly striving to douse the fire of God in us, make us cold and rebellious like Him. We then should constantly dwell in prayer and surround ourselves with the Word of God which sanctifies us day by day and give no room to the enemy
Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord. See to it that no one misses the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many.
See to it that you do not refuse him who speaks. If they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, how much less will we, if we turn away from him who warns us from heaven?
