Nothing Fancy

www.bible.com/1713/rom.10.10.csb

Aren’t you glad that God didn’t say, “You have to cross the deepest ocean, climb the highest mountain, and cross the widest desert before you can be saved”? Aren’t you glad that God did not set the price of salvation at $100 Billion? Or that God didn’t say “like and share with a million friends” before you could be saved? Aren’t you glad He said none of these things, but to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and confess Him before men?

Coming to Christ initially is nothing fancy. It is simple faith and the confession of your lips. But that faith may make you some amazing things, like cross an ocean, a desert, or scale a mountain for Him. You may give billions for the sake of the name, even to like and share with millions more. But none of these great works come from a need for Jesus. They come a love for Him.

I never thought u would still be blogging like this every day, but now I am drawn to it because of the time I had here thinking about the Word and am always amazed at how well the Bible does together as a whole. I love sharing with you everyday. And I hope you get something out of it too.

God bless you, and thank God He asked for nothing fancy when it came to your salvation.
