“I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.”  Philippians 3:12. It is not our grip on God that keeps us safe, but the power of Jesus’ grasp. No one can take us out of His grasp. Once we’re in His hands, He will not let go.  We have this assurance, “I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.  My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand” (John 10:28-29). We are doubly safe…our Father holding one hand and Jesus on the other side holding the other. The One who saved us is the One who keeps us.
