Hi, Madeline —

Here is a good article that will help address the issue:

Also check out our postings under the Salvation and Justification section.

Madeline —

I am redeemed by Christ, and am working out my salvation through His grace.

OR:

Christ has won salvation for me every day I accept it, and live it, persevering by His grace until death.

John replied:

Hi, Madeline —

I'd answer it quite simply:

I was saved, I am saved, I am being saved, and I hope to be saved . . .
all by the Grace and Mercy of God.

Beyond that, no human being can say more. Salvation is a sovereign act of God's grace, with which our free will must cooperate.  It is Jesus who does this work from beginning to end.

We can be assured He will always remain faithful to us, but we don't know if we will always remain faithful to Him.

John
