Kept For JESUS Book -Review & $10 Family Christian Appreciation Certificate Giveaway



My Review

As you can see from the list of chapters below, you can reach out to each one as you struggle wit your walk.As a struggling Christian as I am sure most of us are. We need something to remind us of what Jesus came and did for us all and what and how it all applies to our daily existence. I personally need all the help I can get as I struggle through this cold and unloving world. I see so many not even trying to focus on the lord but putting to much weight into the fate of this world and not its maker. I do try to stay current but I more try to focus on what my faith teaches me. Todays TV, media and other outlets have just gone bonkers and it is just an overload of what we should not be seeing and doing. So for me this book just further helps me to keep myself grounded and focused on where my faith and priorities are in my life and that is with JESUS. So if you struggle as I do, you need to read this enlightening and engaging book that will help keep you grounded and focused.

Can Christians lose their salvation?

This question has perplexed—and distressed—believers for centuries. When faced with our sin and shortcomings, sometimes we’re tempted to conclude that we’ve strayed too far and that God no longer loves us.

In Kept for Jesus, pastor Sam Storms addresses common concerns that Christians have related to their eternal security, offering hope and assurance from the Bible. Examining every New Testament passage that speaks to this important issue, this book charts a biblical course between those who say that Christians can lose their salvation and those who carelessly declare, “Once saved, always saved.”


“I have wrestled with the issue of assurance of salvation not just as a pastor counseling timid souls but as a sinner trusting in God. What a great help is Kept for Jesus, then! Handling the relevant biblical texts with clarity and precision, Sam Storms has crafted real ministry with this book, working by the Spirit to plant the security of union with Christ in the believer’s heart.”
—Jared C. Wilson, Director of Content Strategy, Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary
“With care and compassion, Sam engages in a wide-ranging discussion of the love of God, blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, spurious faith versus saving faith, human dignity and human depravity, the nature of eternal security, God’s preserving power in faithful Christians, the problem of apostasy, and much more. Not shying away from the controversial nature of his topic and tackling head-on dozens of difficult passages, Sam offers an engaging book that deals biblically, theologically, and practically with the all-important matter of assurance of salvation.”
—Gregg R. Allison, Professor of Christian Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
“Is your errant friend unsaved or simply backslidden? This book contains a great overview of what the Bible teaches about eternal security, the perseverance of the saints, God’s sovereignty and free will. Clear, readable, and compelling. A must for anyone who wants to understand the Reformed view on the assurance of salvation.”
—Mary A. Kassian, Professor of Women’s Studies, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary; author, Girls Gone Wise in a World Gone Wild
“Too often the gospel is reduced to only wiping away sin’s debt. Storms shows us a more wonderful gospel of love and direct relationship with God in which Christ is inseparable from us, keeping us, and holding us as family. Storms is a pastor of pastors, walking us through the thorny issues—such as the warning passages—and into green pastures of communion with our Savior. He calls us into the beautiful tension and transformation of God’s forever grace.”
—Daniel Montgomery, Pastor, Sojourn Community Church, Louisville, Kentucky; Founder, Sojourn Network; author, Faithmapping and Proof
“Do you worry that you will lose your salvation? Do you feel confident in God’s love for you? This book will help you feel secure in God’s promises over you. Jesus said of his people: “I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand” (John 10:28). Sam Storms once again demonstrates his pastoral wisdom as he lovingly lays the foundation for eternal security.”
—Adrian Warnock, author, Hope Reborn and Raised with Christ
“This is classic Sam Storms: warm, thoughtful, clear, and wise. Not all readers will agree on every detail, but all will be well served by working through the issues with such an insightful guide. Throughout the book, God’s protection of his people shines through—and so do the joy and security that this brings to all who trust him.”
—Andrew Wilson, Pastor, Kings Church Eastbourne, East Sussex; author, If God, Then What?and Unbreakable
“Sam Storms has given us a book that is fair, humble, straightforward, and helpful. He consistently presents views that oppose his own and frequently admits he does not have all the answers. He argues biblically and passionately for the truth that God keeps true believers saved to the end and focuses on the Christian life and rejects errant views, including those that cut the biblical cord between God’s keeping us and our keeping on in faith, love, and holiness. This is a good book, and I am happy to recommend it.”
—Robert A. Peterson, Professor of Systematic Theology, Covenant Theological Seminary
