Serving God to serve others
Accepting the peace of mind that once saved, always saved
LONGWOOD, FL â€" Author Robert Metevia describes his book, Secure Forever ($15.99, paperback, 9781612158174), as a must-read for anyone seeking the assurance and peace of mind that his or her salvation, once received, is forever and can never be lost. Secure Forever is also for readers who want to defend this precious doctrine to pass along to fellow believers. This book reveals the warfare that goes on in the minds of believers, preventing them from letting go and trusting in Christ, and Christ alone, for their salvation. Metevia explains that to trust in Christ plus one’s own ability to maintain a certain level of faith, is to trust in Christ plus human effort.
Secure Forever conveys to its readers that God’s work of justification declares them righteous forever, while His work of sanctification makes them righteous in their behavior. A number of other theological distinctions will be made to help readers understand the permanency of their salvation such as: the differences between salvation faith and service faith, innate knowledge and head knowledge, a sinner and a saint, the believer’s relationship with God and his or her fellowship with God, judicial forgiveness and parental forgiveness as well as the distinction between the words faith of Christ and faith in Christ.
According to Metevia, it is important to note that embracing the truths contained in his book will result in a proper motivation of service to the Lord. Secure Forever deals with an issue that most Christians are concerned about and that must be settled in the hearts and minds of all believers. He relays that the concepts contained in this book are truths that all Christians should be familiar with; they will enable readers to understand that once saved always saved. This will motivate believers to serve God, not out of a fear of losing their salvation, but out of gratitude that they are kept by God’s power to serve others.
