Can you be saved twice?
[God] hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts. 2 Corinthians 1:22
Have you ever known anyone who was physically born twice?
Have you ever known someone who was spiritually born twice?
Nowhere in the Bible will you find a passage that describes anyone being saved twice. Once you come into the family, you’re in the family.
The Amplified version of 2 Corinthians 1:22 makes it even more certain:
“It is He who has also put His seal on us [that is, He has appropriated us and certified us as His] and has given us the [Holy] Spirit in our hearts as a pledge [like a security deposit to guarantee the fulfillment of His promise of eternal life].”
There were times when I disappointed my parents. There were times when my father had to chastise me, but I am a Rogers. I will be a Rogers for all eternity. It’s the same way with your spiritual life. When you are born into the family of God, your name is written in the Lamb’s book of life. It is fixed. It is done.
