About Me

My photo

Hey there, I'm Sunny Shell, a wretch saved by God's grace through faith in Jesus Christ the Lord. I'm married to the most incredible man on earth, who loves Jesus more than he loves me, and we have two precious adult sons.

The compassionately endures me through my metabolic disease (since 2004) that enables me to be more prayerful and careful about commitments I make and helps me to make the best use of my short time here on earth.

Salvation: Revocable or Irrevocable?


Many people ask , “Can I lose my salvation?” This is truly a tough question. But since the word of God says, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.” (Psalm 119:105) Let’s look to the word of God to reveal the truth (shine a light) on this question so we can “see” what the answer is:

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast.”
Ephesians 2:8-9

“...for God’s gifts and His call are irrevocable.”
Romans 11:29

“The disciples were even more amazed, and said to each other, “Who then can be saved?” Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”
Mark 10:26-27

I know many people have a different take on this, but here’s what I believe according to what God’s word says about our salvation. God’s word says that salvation comes only through faith in Jesus Christ (John 3:16-18, Acts 4:9-12, 1 Thessalonians 5:9, Romans 10:9-10)

Basically, all these verses above state that we’ve done nothing to gain our salvation, therefore it seems reasonable to me, that there’s nothing we can do to lose it.

For example, my husband and I loved our kids the moment we knew God had blessed us with a baby. We loved them before they ever had an opportunity to do anything to earn our love. We’ve told both our kids this since they were little toddlers so they would never question our love and one day learn never to question God’s love either. We'd say, “No matter what you do, don’t do, how much trouble you may get in, or how disappointed we may be with you, always know this: we will always love you. You see sweet baby, we loved you the day we found out about you. So you never had a chance to do anything to make us love you. Therefore, you’ll never be able to do anything to make us not love you. Love is a choice, not a feeling and we choose to love you. Feelings come and go, but love always remains.”

If us fallible human beings can love our children this way (unconditionally), then how much more do you think our perfect God loves us (Luke 11:11-13)? And He demonstrated His amazing love for us by giving us the gift of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ alone (2 Corinthians 5:21, 1 Peter 2:24).


“For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit”1 Peter 3:18
