“But the one who endures to the end shall be saved.” – Matthew 24:13
“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.” – Hebrews 10:23
It is not a given for any man that he will see his faith through to the end. Just as we were dependent on God to brings us into the Kingdom (Romans 9:15-16), we are dependent on Him to keep us faithful until the end. Our endurance may be a foregone conclusion within our theology, but we simply do not know what the future will hold. We have no idea what circumstances await us in the future. We have no idea what our capacities or limitations are. We must trust the Christ who called us (John 10:27-28) to never let us go (John 10:28-30). It is not that we can gain salvation and then lose it. It is that we cannot know for certain if we have it until Christ actually gets us there. Therefore, do not rely on your own strength, good intentions, or perceived level of faithfulness to be enough. Rely on Christ.
