How to avoid missing salvation
November 29, 2012
And to the one who does not work but believes in him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is counted as righteousness,
Not long ago, I shared at a men’s Bible study about how people will sometimes come up to me and say, “Are you one of those born-again Christians?” And I told these men, “That’s the only kind of Christian there is because if you’re not born again, you’ll never see the kingdom of God!” (John 3:3)
After I finished talking, a man came up to me and told me he used to be a deacon in his church. He was very active in all kinds of ministry. And by all accounts, he was a wonderful person—a good father and husband, and a pillar of the community. But today, he was trembling.
“Jack,” he said, “I don’t believe I’m saved. I don’t know Christ in my heart and I can’t leave here without knowing for sure.
So we sat down right then and he told me, “I want to give my life to Jesus.” We prayed, he confessed his sin to God, and this man who’d been serving in the church for years gave his life to Christ!
You’re never too old to come to that realization. Maybe you accepted a gospel that wasn’t real. Or, maybe you didn’t have a clue what you were doing when you prayed a prayer or walked an aisle. It’s not too late. Let today be your day of salvation!
IF YOU’VE BEEN TRUSTING IN YOUR GOOD WORKS TO BE SAVED, TURN TO CHRIST TODAY. IT’S NEVER TOO LATE!

Become the man God desires!
You might think Jesus’ disciples were so extraordinary that you can’t possibly relate to them today.
But the truth is Jesus chose ordinary men to be His disciples and change the world—proof that He uses ordinary guys to do extraordinary things!
That’s why I want to send you two powerful resources today to help you or the man in your life become the man God desires: my 8-CD series called Why Believe – The 12, and my book, Man of God: Study Guide Edition.
In Why Believe – The 12, I give you inspiration—and words of warning—from the lives and beliefs of the disciples to help you live every day with significance and purpose.
And in Man of God: Study Guide Edition, you’ll come to understand the four vital areas of a man’s life that make him who he is!
