Real Christians “keep and obey…” We have a creed. We follow the example of Jesus. Our life imitates His – not in the sense of wearing robes and sandals, but in the sense of being like Jesus.
Getting saved does not leave us kneeling there — still a common puny human. At that moment of salvation we are made brand new, and are called by Jesus to be forever on a higher level. We have more than “eternity”. We have an extreme, high calling from our extreme High God.
“Christ offers us His “iron-clad” humongous type of salvation”… or, on the flip-side, this article could be titled… “The limits of what God will do for sinners”.
I am frightened by the standard set by God for entrance into His Kingdom. “Few there be that find it….” It is no small thing to be forgiven by God, accepted by God, made a child of God, to finally become a member of God’s family. Salvation by Almighty God is done by Him as we give Him our all. If we do not respond by a life given-over completely to Him, then we are fooling ourselves. We are still damned all to Hell.
