Some confused Christians have the tragic belief that

they became Christians by faith, but they must perform

certain works in order to maintain their standing before


Any system that says that ANYTHING must be added to

the grace of God is a false gospel. The salvation which

Jesus Christ purchased at Calvary for believers was "PAID

IN FULL" then and there.

The Bible says, "For by one offering He has perfected

for all time those who are sanctified." (Hebrews 10:14


True believers are made holy--sanctified--by the

sacrificial offering of Jesus Christ. His death and His

Resurrection -victory over death have purchased a salvation

which is good "for all time". The word here translated

"perfect" includes the idea of being made complete and

mature. There IS something for the believer to do, but

obedience is BECAUSE we are saved, not IN ORDER to be saved

or to STAY saved.

A believer in Christ Jesus has no reason at all to

feel insecure or incomplete or inadequate.

The Christian's EXPERIENCE is a growth process by

stages. First, we're "born again" (John 3:1-21), then we

"grow" as Christians (II Peter 3:18), but the offering that

purchased it was once-for-all, paid-in-full, and perfect

for all time.

We encourage you to read for yourself the letters of

Peter, the Gospel and letters of John, and if you want

heavier references to the Hebrew Scriptures, the Gospel of

Matthew and the letter to the Hebrews.

If you want a secure, fully paid-for eternity with

Jesus, put your trust in Him as your Savior and Lord RIGHT
