I’ve preached the same Gospel for years and years. God came to save sinners. He draws sinners to a point of repentance; you are convicted by the sins you commit, and you come before a Holy and Righteous God, and you call upon Him and put your faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross. You get saved – God saves you, not you – your faith is just there as an act of you reaching out to God, He reaches down to you with His grace and says, “My Son died for your sins, accept or reject?”
You say, “Accept. I have nothing I can offer you, I’m a sinner. Please, take me. Tell me what to do, you changed my life.” You realize it’s going to be a changed life, which is why a lot of people don’t get saved. Truly saved. You get saved by an act of belief and faith, it’s the same thing. I believe Jesus died for me on the cross but I can’t see it so I have to put my faith in it. It’s one time, not like Roman Catholic Salvation which is continuous.
So how does the King James Bible define the word “faith”?
We hope you are edified by this study.
