I would just like to touch on the perseverance of the saints which Michael mentioned in his answer. This doctrine is clearly taught in these passages, John 10:28-29 --28: "I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Fathers hand."; Rom. 11:29; Phil. 1:6: "And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ."; and 1 Peter 1:5, a verse Michael so masterfully unpacked, without mentioning the reference (NLV): "You are being kept by the power of God because you put your trust in Him and you will be saved from the punishment of sin at the end of the world." --[EBD] EBD stands for Easton's Bible Dictionary. "Perseverance of the saints is the biblical doctrine that God infallibly preserves in faith all of those he has given to the Son (John 6:37, 39, 44, 63-65) so that they are never lost. It maintains that none who are truly redeemed by Christ can be condemned for their sins or finally fall away from the faith." --https://www.monergism.com/topics/perseverance-saints/perseverance-saints
