This Covenant Pledges Grace to Persevere

On the eternal certainty of this covenant is founded the faithfulness of the gospel offer, pledging God to every sinner who believes and repents, that he shall through Christ receive saving grace; and among those gracious influences thus pledged with eternal truth to the believer, from the moment he truly believes, is persevering grace. (Jer. 32:40); (proved to be the gospel pledge by Heb. 8:10); (Isa. 54:10); (Hos. 2:19, 20); (1 Thess. 5:23, 24); (John 10:27); (1 Pet. 1:5); (Rom. 8:1 to end). These are a few from the multitude of promises, assuring us of our final safety from every possible influence, when once they are truly in Christ.
