Can I Lose My Salvation?

The book of Hebrews warns Christians about the security of their salvation.

Hebrews 6:4-6 reads, “For it is impossible to bring back to repentance those who were once enlightened—those who have experienced the good things of heaven and shared in the Holy Spirit, who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the power of the age to come— and who then turn away from God. It is impossible to bring such people back to repentance; by rejecting the Son of God, they themselves are nailing him to the cross once again and holding him up to public shame.” (NLT)

Since this book is written to Christians, why would the word of God warn us about falling away if that was not a possibility?

Let’s take a look at other warnings from the Scriptures.

The Holy Spirit’s Actions

The Bible clearly explains that the Holy Spirit is a person. As a person, He moves in our lives in several ways. These actions are always active, meaning that they are on-going.

The Holy Spirit never stops working in our lives; He is always present and active.

  1. The Holy Spirit guides

He hears, speaks, and shows.

John 16:13 However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. (NKJV)

  1. The Holy Spirit convicts of sin.

He knows the heart of God and tells us when we have gone against His will.

John 16:8 And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment. (NKJV)

  1. The Holy Spirit performs

He works in the supernatural to fulfill the desires of God’s heart.

Act 8:39 Now when they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught Philip away, so that the eunuch saw him no more; and he went on his way rejoicing. (NKJV)

The Holy Spirit is our go-between. He takes the things of Christ and reveals them to us, for us, and through us.

Dr. Max I. Reich put this beautifully when he said, “If we make room for the Holy Spirit, He will make room for the Lord Jesus.” The converse is also true, that if we do not make room for the Holy Spirit, He cannot make room for the Lord Jesus.

The “secret sauce” to a believer’s life is learning to make the correct adjustments to the Holy Spirit’s leadings so Christ can be formed in us.

The denial of the “person” of the Holy Spirit has been denied throughout church history, but evidence exists for His personhood.

In order to grow as a believer, it is important to understand the role of the Holy Spirit.

To be effective in walking a Christ-Centered Life, we must adjust our lives to what the Holy Spirit wants to do in, for, and through us.

IN a believer, the role of the Holy Spirit is to transform us to be Christ-like. This is what I refer to as living a Christ-Centered life!

I Corinthians 2:9-10 NLT No eye has seen, nor ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him. But it was to us that God revealed these things by his Spirit. For his Spirit searches out everything and shows us God’s deep secrets.

FOR a believer, the role of the Holy Spirit is to help and guide us.

John 14:26 NKJV But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom my father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.

THROUGH a believer, the role of the Holy Spirit is to reveal God’s revelations through us!

Act 1:8 NKJV But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem [family, home], and in all Judea [our community] and Samaria [across cultures], and to the end of the earth [missions].

All of this is done through us, when we possess and tap into the power of the Holy Spirit.
