Final Perseverance

“No man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.”
(John 10:29)

Here we have final perseverance, and not just the perseverance of the Holy Trinity; it is the final perseverance of the Holy Ghost in opening the ears of the sheep; it is the perseverance of the Son in receiving all whose ears are thus opened. And it is the perseverance of the Father in keeping, through His own name, the blood-bought flock in the hollow of His everlasting hand.

Salvation is of the Lord. From first to last it reaches down to where the sinner is, in all his guilt and ruin, and bears him up to where God is in all His holiness, truth, and righteousness; and it endures forever with God the Father as its source, God the Son as its channel, and God the Spirit as the power of application and enjoyment.
