Salvation is Positional Not Conditional

Boston sunset-wide

Salvation is positional, not conditional.

Too often many Christians feel their salvation is conditional. If they do certain things, they’re saved; if they don’t do certain things, they’ll lose what they have. They may even feel they can lose their position as the saved of the Lord, but let me assure you, God is NOT a taker of what He’s already given and provided through His Son. (There’s another term for that but I do not like to use it).

Your salvation is based on what Jesus has done for you, not on anything you can do. Because of Jesus’ finished work on the Cross, you become a child of God and no one can take that away from you. God doesn’t come after you with a baseball bat or anything else to beat you on the head when you do wrong or slip from His Way. He gentles loves you and encourages you to come back to Him. He’s cheering you on; He’s rooting for you all the way, even when you may slip and fall in life.

You are IN CHRIST, and when you are IN CHRIST, no one can snatch you away. He says in John 10:28 that “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me; and neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.”

Your salvation and position in Christ is not based on your works. Your works can’t do enough to provide eternal life. That’s why Jesus came and it is through His life and sacrifice that provides your position as a child of God, a joint-heir of Christ, forever loved of your Heavenly Father.

Rejoice today because your salvation is positional: IN CHRIST. You are God’s child, IN CHRIST.
