And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.
In the Bible lands children play games in which one child tries to pluck a stone or a coin from the hand of another child. Sometimes this game is one in which a coin is held between the palms of one child's hands and the other child tries to separate the hands to get the coin. There is not a hand strong enough to take or pluck us out of the hands of God when we have confessed with our mouth the Lord Jesus Christ and believed that God raised him from the dead.
