“The Bible very clearly grounds the believer’s security in God. We do not save ourselves, and we do not keep ourselves saved . . . Can we really take comfort in an unbelieving modification of Christ’s words — ‘Be of good cheer, I have overcome the world, if you make sure the world does not overcome you, which, of course, it might’? . . . Our security lies not in our faithfulness, but in the faithfulness of God and His Word. Left to our own devices, we would fall away. But we are not in our own hands; we are in Christ’s hands, and in the Father’s. We cannot be removed from that eternal haven” (Back to Basics, pp. 57-58).
