I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. I and the Father are one. - John 10:28-30
I used to love feeling my father's big hand as we walked through the parking lot. He held on tightly so I wouldn't get hurt. He made me feel loved and safe by gripping my little paw. Now you tell me that no one will snatch me out of your hand. I can feel your grip on me. I feel loved and safe. Thank you that my eternal security depends on your grip. I want you to hold me close to you whenever you see me in spiritual or physical danger. I would rather wince from the jerk of your hand than fall prey to the ravages of the evil one. So, hold me tight dear Savior and never let me go.

It's more fun being a child of God than an adult sinner.
