For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5).
It is impossible that eternal good can come from this world of depravity. It is not possible to take something temporary and depraved and make from it something eternal. However, God has done this impossible feat in and for us. We are now the product of God, therefore, we have tremendous life now and in the future.
He has given something good to His children, but it is up to us to recognize it and to walk it out. We have heard many sermons about what we need to do, however the time has come that we all need to fix our attention on what Jesus has done for us by the sacrifice of Himself on the Cross. We all look good for a while. However, as the journey continues, we will see our own deficiencies. This is by the design of the Lord. We must come to the end of ourselves; before we conclude that God Himself must do the work He requires of us. We must believe Him and extend our full cooperation.
There are a lot of people who are building what will not last; they are building for the here and now. But we have already received the call to an eternal inheritance, and this call is irrevocable. No one can say that God made a mistake when He called someone or that the person was not worthy or did not belong. The Bible teaches us that “for He Himself has said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you’” (Hebrews 13:5). Sometimes we might hear someone say, “He used to be saved.” Well, if he used to be saved, he is saved right now. Why? Because God does not do a temporary and incomplete work. He does not initiate something that cannot be completed! You are a portrait of Christ. You will not be an “unfinished” product. The God we serve says, “I know the thoughts that I think toward you” (Jeremiah 29:11). What kind of thoughts does He have? He has “thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope” (Jeremiah 29:11). He says, “My plans are to bring you to an expected end.” In other words, there is a future and a hope planned for every believer. The thing you must do is believe what the Lord has said to you!
