Recently, I read “Stop Asking Jesus Into Your Heart: How To Know For Sure You Are Saved” by J.D. Greear. Today I want to share with you a summary of two chapters which spoke to me.
Christianity contrasts with just about every other major religion in that God credits our faith, and not our works, as righteousness. Jesus commands us to repent, and believe. Sadly, churches have changed this approach to a ‘prayer of salvation’, assuring their followers that if they pray a specific confession of belief then Jesus will welcome them into heaven. So, how can you know you are saved? As we review the Bible, we get a clearer view on salvation and assurance.
