Once Saved. Always Saved?

Questions and answers. From the very first days of my salvation I have been asked about and told of other peoples concept of once saved, always saved. So I decided to write a few of my thoughts on this question. ..once saved, always saved? From my perspective it has never been about whether Jesus changed His mind about my salvation, but did I?

But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. * Deuteronomy 18:10-14 There shall not be found among you [any one] that maketh

A Mother, A Proverbs 31 Woman

A Mother, Quiet strength, that absorbs the repercussions of a family. Grace and wisdom that flows ribbon like through the family tree. Peace that finds comfort through the study and application of God's word in the landscape of everyday life. A Gardener planting trees of righteousness in her generations. Toiling and sunning in life's field Pulling strength from the vine, as the Sun of righteousness arises with healing in His wings. "Arise children and give Him praise" A Mother said at the beginning and the end of the day. A Mother Proverbs 31 woman, her generations will arise and called her blessed. ~Debbie © 2011 Debbie Turner Chavers ***Excerpt from my book  " Proverbs 31, Verse by Verse " © 2009 Debbie Turner Chavers Malachi 4:2   But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.
