Were you nervous someone wouldn't like your Christmas present? Did you include a gift receipt just in case? Here's why God never has to worry about someone refusing His gift of salvation!
Many Christians say if you sin too frequently or too severely, you can lose your salvation. But the Bible says nothing can separate us from God's grace.
We oppose legalism on the front end of salvation. But are we as vigilant on the back end? Salvation is by God's grace through and through. The grace that saves us also keeps us.
"What must I do to be saved?" is a biblical question. Unfortunately, we often give unbiblical answers. The fact is we cannot make a decision for Jesus unless God makes it for us.
Christian churches are abuzz about grace. But when it comes down to it, we deny salvation is totally a gift of God! We must heed the Reformers' cry once more. We must come to grips with grace.
