"I will never leave thee."—Hebrews 13:5

No promise is of private interpretation. Whatever God has said to any one saint, He has said to all. When He opens a well for one, it is that all may drink. When He openeth a granary-door to give out food, there may be someone starving man who is the occasion of its being opened, but all hungry saints may come and feed too. Whether He gave the word to Abraham or to Moses, matters not, O believer; He has given it to thee as one of the covenanted seed. There is not a high blessing too lofty for thee, nor a wide mercy too extensive for thee. Lift up now thine eyes to the north and to the south, to the east and to the west, for all this is thine. Climb to Pisgah's top, and view the utmost limit of the divine promise, for the land is all thine own. There is not a brook of living water of which thou mayst not drink. If the land floweth with milk and honey, eat the honey and drink the milk, for both are thine.

Be thou bold to believe, for He hath said, "I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee."In this promise, God gives to His people everything. "I will never leave thee." Then no attribute of God can cease to be engaged for us. Is He mighty? He will show Himself strong on the behalf of them that trust Him. Is He love? Then with lovingkindness will He have mercy upon us. Whatever attributes may compose the character of Deity, every one of them to its fullest extent shall be engaged on our side. To put everything in one, there is nothing you can want, there is nothing you can ask for, there is nothing you can need in time or in eternity, there is nothing living, nothing dying, there is nothing in this world, nothing in the next world, there is nothing now, nothing at the resurrection-morning, nothing in heaven which is not contained in this text—"I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee."

Amen! It is the delight of the believer to live by the
sure promises of God and not personal effort.

This Scripture has a multitude of applications. Since God has never failed to keep His promises thus far, He can be trusted to Keep this promise to never leave us. Over the years, I've had folk say, "I think I've lost my Salvation. Answer? Jesus will never leave you. I feel distant from God, answer? He hasn't moved, you have, because He will never leave you.

For the Child of God, this promise is one of the best that I know of that will put the Believer at rest in their mind....
John 14:27 "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid."
For the person that thinks they have lost their Salvation need to remember that Jesus promises never to leave one of His believers.

PEACE: What a wonderful word. Lets look at another important verse on peace....
Colossians 3:15 "And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful." The word peace here is a decision maker.The word "rule" means to umpire or referee.

There are many decisions that have to be made every day. There are some wonderful, spiritual folk who just don't want to be Baptized. Why? Because they don't have a peace in their heart. In this case, they should not be Baptized until the Holy Spirit, the vehicle of peace, places that in their hearts

I can't tell you of the many times I've been asked, "If I don't get baptized am I still saved? The answer is YES!!

Thank you Christ4Ever for this Thread. ..
Hebrews 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

In a world of deception whereby folks have been deserted by a spouse, child runaway, best friend etc, etc, for those people to trust that Jesus the Son of God will not desert them is very hard because so many people have.

OH, how sweet the sound of grace and this blessed assurance! Here is another:
  • John 6:39 And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all those he has given me, but raise them up at the last day.Unless you have the pride to refuse this, if you are "Born Again", with Christ in you...no matter where you go or backslide, once there, he will never lose us and we will be raised on our last day!
  • Praise be to God and to him goes all the glory!

This is so true! I personally haven't seen where Jesus has commanded us to be obedient as much as he expects obedience!
