Commentary
No stronger passage in the OT or NT exists for the absolute, eternal security of every true Christian.

MacArthur, J. J. (1997, c1997). The MacArthur Study Bible (electronic ed.) (Jn 10:28). Nashville: Word Pub.

We live a Christian life because we are Christians. We desire to live a holy life, not out of fear of losing our salvation, but out of gratitude to the One who died for us. The doctrine of eternal security does not encourage careless living, but rather is a strong motive for holy living.
MacDonald, W., & Farstad, A. (1997, c1995). Believer's Bible Commentary : Old and New Testaments (Jn 10:28). Nashville: Thomas Nelson.

If He is for us then who can be against us.... No one! In Christ we shall fear nothing but God. All glory to Jesus Christ.

My heavenly Father's unconditional Love and amazing Grace create a desire in my heart to know Him more and do things that grow my affection for Christ. And in those moments He powerfully and wonderfully changes my heart and my soul to be more and more like Him, allowing Him to live His life through me for His Glory.

I was raised Baptist, and even though if i wasn't i still think that I would believe in this because it simply states that now that i am pentecostal I still and always will believe once saved is always saved! you don't have to work for it and once you get it you will have a desire to worship HIM!
