God literally makes thousands of promises in His word. Some are obvious promises and actually uses the word promise, yet others are promises based on how it is said. We also know from His word that he can not lie, he can not break a promise. So when he says "I will never leave you or forsake you". We can be absolutely sure that is true. We can know that when God says it is true we can check it off our list and no longer worry about it. As the old saying goes, "You can take it to the bank".
This is true for our salvation. If you have given your life to Jesus Christ you are in. You are going to be in Heaven. There are a lot of false teachings out there by mainstream "Christian" denominations that say you can lose it, get it back, lose it again, and so on. This is a lie from Satan. The bible says and the Lord Jesus says you can't earn it, so if you can't do anything to get it why would you think you could do anything to lose it.
Your salvation isn't based on you. It is a promise from God that if you believe in the Lord Jesus with all your heart, mind, and soul then you are saved from death and will be with Him in heaven forever.
You can not lose it. Because you are kept by God and not yourself. Yes you can backslide and you can walk away from serving God and you should do everything you can to avoid that by staying in His word and focus on God and not the world. but if you do backslide then turn from that and get back to God.
John 14:23 Jesus answered him, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.
If you haven't given your life to Jesus then today is the day to do it. Just because you sit in church, or maybe you are very involved in your church doesn't mean you are saved. Many people are religious but are not Followers of Christ. Give your life to Jesus and lock in your spot in Heaven.
God loves you and we love you!
