If you belong to Christ, there is nothing you can do to separate yourself from him. You are so securely held by his tight embrace.

Now if you hear this wonderful truth and rejoice that you do not have to make any effort to live according to God’s word or submit yourself thereto, then I would have you take an honest evaluation of yourself. At the beginning I said “if you belong to Christ.” If you consider yourself as such, and yet it is your heart desire to run headlong into wickedness, or even just dabble at its doorstep, then seriously consider: regeneration does not leave the converted unaffected. Run now to Christ and repent of your gross disregard of his person and work. Come before him and plead with him to melt your heart of stone and create within you a pure clean heart.

Jesus our Lord has said that if you come to him, he will not cast you away. A broken and contrite heart he will not despise. Come into the arms of the Savior and enjoy the full bliss of the sweetness of the opening statement that you are his, forever!
