The following excerpt is from an article that originally appeared on Christian Today
The Bible tells us that our salvation is a free gift. Many people just can’t believe the fact that we don’t need to do anything to save ourselves – only believe in the finished work of the Son of God, Jesus Christ, on the cross of Calvary and the grave. Because of this, many still try to add to what He has done, always to no result.
There are others, however, who take salvation very lightly. They simply say a “sinner’s prayer” as if it’s a magic formula that, when you say it “with all your heart,” you’re saved. It’s like popping a bag of microwave popcorn in the microwave for a few minutes, and voila! Instant movie food.
But the truth is, friends, is that saying or reciting that sinner’s prayer isn’t enough, no matter how manypost was originally published on this site
