What does it mean to be right with God? To be saved? To be born again? To be on your way to Heaven? Church has made those questions religious and has answered them with “church membership,” “attending church,” “saying a one-time prayer,” and/or “having a one-time spiritual experience.”
However, what if salvation is an ongoing, personal, submissive, and obedient relationship with the living, resurrected Jesus Christ, instead of those things? Some thoughts recently came to me about what salvation is. I put them on two posters. If you follow your conscience, that inner light will lead you to the risen Jesus and to the powerful realities taught in the Bible. If you ignore your conscience, darkness will gradually lead you away from God.
