Four FOREVER’S

You’re Forever CHOSEN

Ephesians 1:5 His unchanging plan has always been to adopt us into his own family by sending Jesus Christ to die for us. And he did this because he wanted to!The Living Bible

You’re Forever PERFECT

Hebrews 10:14 For by that one offering he forever made perfect those who are being made holy. New Living Translation

You’re Forever HOLY

Colossians 1:21 Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. 22 But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation 23 if you continue in your faith...  New International Version

You’re Forever SECURE

2 Timothy 2:11 It is a trustworthy statement: For if we died with Him, we will also live with Him; 12 If we endure, we will also reign with Him; If we deny Him, He also will deny us; 13 If we are faithless, He remains faithful, for He cannot deny Himself. New American Standard Bible

 

John 10:28 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand.  New International Version

 

God wants us to find OUT what PLEASES the Lord
