Today's Scripture: And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand." Jn 10:28

That's a wrap
Security of the believer is a wonderful thought and John 10:28 can be a proof text of that promise. But for every one verse that states such a simple salvation promise, there may be twenty that make you wonder if it is really that easy. Most reputable evangelists recognize the likelihood that the majority of the established church is lost yet all those people could use this verse as their assurance of salvation. Then looking at Matthew 7:21-23, many people, with more reason to be assured than the average church member, are not even known by Jesus, much less will enter heaven.
It would be great if there was a "savedometer." One look at this device and the needle would show your spiritual condition. Oh wait, we have such and His name is Holy Spirit. Galatians chapter five tells us what the sinful nature looks like and the effect the Spirit has on a person's life when He moves in. Now if we could get people to be objective about their true condition and base their believe on the evidence. No, that won't happen until Judge Jesus peels back the facade most of us are wearing, but then the race will be over.
My evidence? Only You, Holy Spirit, could cause me to love people I hated and pray for people I despised.
