In the book,Stop Asking Jesus Into Your Heart: How to Know for Sure You Are Saved Pastor and author J.D. Greear says answers the question: Can we be assured of our salvation? This is a short and concise read on the subject of salvation which breaks down the true requirements of living confident on our salvation through Jesus Christ.
With much scriptural support and conversational tone, Greear speaks to the heart of every Christian who’s ever questioned their salvation.
Greear addresses the common but often misunderstood notion of asking Jesus into our hearts (the sinners prayer) in order to receive the gift of salvation. Greear breaks down the theology, and helps believers to understand that they can have assurance of their salvation, while also helping to clear the confusion for those who believe salvation is complete by the act of asking Jesus into their hearts. Pastor Greear makes it clear that:
“salvation is a posture we take to the promise of God in Christ, a posture that begins at a certain point and is maintained for the rest of our lives.” (quoted from Amazon)
This is a short book, one I read in about an hour and a half. It’s a handy tool for anyone working in ministry or for anyone who wants to be better equipped as they share the Gospel with those who are seeking. Read it, and pass it on.
