The Psalm of Eternal Security

Psalm 16

16 Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust.

2 O my soul, thou hast said unto the Lord, Thou art my Lord: my goodness extendeth not to thee;

3 But to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight.

4 Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god: their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips.

5 The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.

6 The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage.

7 I will bless the Lord, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons.

8 I have set the Lord always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

Let us Pray


There are many who follow Christ who have this idea, that if they sin and continue in that sin, that they will lose their Salvation. This began with Armenian Christians and is known as the opposite of Calvanism. They have no assurance of heaven; no sure and certain hope of a resurrection and they are always hoping that maybe if they keep from sin they will be saved. Now this practice of belief often happens when somebody you know is a Christian, they are following Christ and they leave the faith, they fall into sin and possibly hurt you personally. There are those who have a real problem with people like that sharing the same heaven as them. Remember the words of the Prodigal son’s brother, I have always served thee but this brother of mine wasted your money on parties and prostitutes….The Idea that he too was a son, with rewards and benefits made him very angry, but for those of us who know Christ, we should learn from the Psalm of Eternal Security:

God will Preserve you

God has an inheritance for you

God will keep you from moving from His instruction

If you have been struggling with this doctrine in the past, this a sermon you will not want to miss!

It is a Joy being your Pastor
