But for the special and
unceasing grace of
J. C. Philpot)
It is a most rich and unspeakable mercy, that
those whom Jesus loves, He loves to the end,
and that His sheep shall never perish, neither
shall anyone snatch them out of His hand.
This is the grand security of the saints of God; for . . .
their inherent sinfulness and weakness are so
Satan is so crafty and so strong,
sin so powerful and deceptive, and
the world so entangling and alluring,
that but for the special and unceasing grace
God, they must perish, and concerning faith make
sure and awful shipwreck.
"I give them eternal life, and they will never perish--ever!
No one will snatch them out of My hand!" (John 10:28)
