Once Saved, Always Saved

Lesson 13

Marking Code: AS
Marking Color: Red
Key Text: Galatians 5:4


1.      Galatians 5:4. The question is: Can a person who has received salvation and God’s gift of eternal life fall from grace and be lost? Paul says clearly that it is possible. A person may fall from grace.


2.      Hebrews 3:8-15. Having once known God’s truth does not prevent a person from hardening his or her heart against it and rebelling against God.


3.      Hebrews 6:4-6. Once a person backslides by persistently rejecting God, it is difficult-almost impossible-to regain a saved relationship with Him.


4.      Hebrews 12:15. The Bible clearly warns that we can “fall short of the grace of God.”


5.      2 Peter 2:20,21. The bible says that it is better for a person never to have known the way of righteousness than to go back to a life of slavery to sin after having known Christ.


6.      Ezekiel 18:24,26. When a righteous person falls from grace, none of his or her former righteousness and obedience is taken into account. Apart from grace, he or she will die for the sins committed.


7.      1 John 2:3,4.  If a person claims to be saved by grace and yet ignores the law and his need to be obedient to God’s will, he is a “liar” and has no truth in him.


Romans 6:1,2.


8.      Hosea 14:4. God wants to heal our backsliding. If we repent, He will always forgive. Yes, a person can fall from grace by repeatedly disobeying God or deliberately turning away from Him. However, God will always accept sincere repentance-and forgive.
