Unlimited: Salvation is as Simple As A–B–C
Dec 24, 2018 1106
“What must I do to be saved?”…
“Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved” (Acts 16:30–31).
We want forgiveness of sin. Many people are sick because they are guilty. They are sick because of things they have done. They need to learn about the Cross. At the Cross the done has been undone!
Many can’t sing and can’t rejoice, because they feel bad about what they have done, about how they have treated loved ones, or ones they should have loved. But the gospel takes away guilt. ”People will be forgiven for every sin and blasphemy” (Matthew 12:31 NRSV). “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins, and purify us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9). “Whoever comes to me I will never drive away” (John 6:37). How wonderful!
Salvation is so simple. Just A-B-C.
A is for “All have sinned” (Romans 3:23).
B is for “Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved” (Acts 16:31).
C is for “If you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus Lord,’ and believe in your heart God raised him from the dead, you will be saved” (Rom 10:9).
A- B-C. It’s as simple as that. – Des Ford
Eli’s Reflection: Think about how you were brought up and your experience of religion. Is there anything there that might make you think that salvation is difficult and complicated? What are the things that stop you from accepting and believing with the simplicity of a child (Matt. 18:3)?
