The purpose of preservation is the kingdom of God and our place therein. In terms of that preservation, we are indeed secure. We must not view preservation from a humanistic perspective. We are preserved in terms of God’s sovereign calling. Apart from that preservation, there is only dereliction and reprobation. We have an eternal security in Jesus Christ, but that security is in terms of his calling.
