God provides the means to the end

A third preliminary remark―Final perseverance in grace is never accomplished without the divinely appointed instrumentalities. The means, and the ends, are invariably associated. And will believers in Christ always employ those means? If they do, the result can never be doubtful. Messiah himself says they will. If a man love me he will keep my words, and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.””This is the love of God that we keep his commandments; and his commandments are not grievous.”The saints of the Redeemer―

 

“Have proclaimed him King, and in their hearts His title is engraven, with a pen Dipt in the fountain of eternal love,”

 

With these considerations before you, we proceed to weigh carefully, and prayerfully, in the balances of divine truth, the principal objections to the conclusion that all believers in Christ will persevere in grace unto the attainment of final and complete salvation, never “totally losing their faith, and regeneration,” but pressing onward till they reach, and wear, the crown of eternal life.
