Another important area of evidence for eternal security is based upon the lengthy passage of Romans 8:1‑39.
Verse 1: There is therefore now no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus means that the believer is no longer under any condemnation, no matter how often he may personally sin.
Verses 2‑8: the believer has been delivered from the Law, and the Law can no longer condemn him.
Verses 9‑13: the divine nature is present within the believer, and this divine nature is not capable of spiritually dying.
Verses 14‑17: the believer is an heir of God; as an heir, he will not lose his inheritance.
Verses 28‑30: the divine purpose is that the very ones who have been justified-and every believer has been justified-will some day also be glorified.
Verses 31‑33: Paul emphasizes the execution of the divine purpose, and indeed the ones whom He has justified He will glorify, because He will not accept any charges [against His] elect.
Verse 34: in light of the Messiah’s achievement, the believer’s security is guaranteed to be eternal.
Verses 35‑39: Paul points out the incompetency of celestial and mundane things to keep one eternally. Believers do not have the power to keep themselves, so God is the One who is going to keep them. On the other hand, these verses emphasize further that there is nothing – absolutely nothing – that can now separate us from the love of God. Nothing outside of us, nothing inside of us, not even we ourselves can separate us from the love of God.
