Sam Storms is glad salvation is not dependent on us to earn, nor to keep. However, do not let that imply that you can live foolish on your own sinful terms. No! Salvation is too sweet, too good and too strong for anyone to taste it, digest it, enjoy it, and then regurgitate it.
A person who is saved will genuinely work out their salvation through their lifestyle. Their production of their life will reveal their fruit - whether or not they are even attached to the Vine.
Does this mean perfection? Does this stumble-free? No, but it does mean progression in holiness. One who is saved will strive against their flesh and against the principalities that are at war within & without. This struggle is a good thing! If the struggle was not there and sin was totally enjoyed with no remorse or repentance, then it is quite possible that salvation never began in the first place.
Kept for Jesus is a brief book on the topic of assurance and what a life looks like when Jesus has His hand on you. This book has certain theological leanings and the author even admits that he wrestles with the realities of life and the moments where it seems to difficult to wonder whether or not a person is walking with Jesus.
To be better familiar with this subject and to know more about assurance from a biblical standpoint, this book will aid you in that, surely.
