Understanding of Salvation posted by John Sorensen on Aug 20, 2018
What’s your understanding of salvation?
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, president of Evangelism Explosion International for Share Life Today. For far too many of us, our understanding of salvation has been reduced to something like raising our hand at the altar call, “accepting Jesus”, then making God a part of our lives to help us and bless us. Not only does this rob God of His due glory, we rob ourselves of the real blessing and fulfillment that comes from subverting our will to His—making Him Lord of our life. Jesus didn’t die on the cross to give us “get out of Hell free cards”; He died to restore us to Him and to completely transform us to be like Him. We have work to do as we live out our days here! In fact, Ephesians 2:10 tells us that we are specifically created to do good works that God planned specifically for us. One of those good works is to share our faith with others.
