So about a week ago, we were at the breakfast table, and we were talking about the wise man and the foolish man. And here were all my children correctly telling me that the wise man was wise because he heard God’s Word and obeyed it. You could tell they were feeling righteous. They explained how they obeyed God all the time.
Only trouble… they’re not saved.
So I asked them, have you obeyed God in the matter of salvation? Now this stopped them, and they didn’t answer for a long time. Apparently, the idea that salvation is an act of obedience was new to them, and it seemed to clarify some things for them. The discussion turned to other things.
Now Lee and I have been talking about this. Is salvation a command, or an invitation? It’s interesting how many salvation verses are if/ then statements: if you confess, then I will forgive, if you come, I will give you rest. This is something we’re thinking and studying these days.
This weekend, Lee and David will be hunting together. I’m praying for the Holy Spirit to use the quiet times they have together for His glory.
