I really believe the following quote is so true. Many want to be “saved” and live any way they want. Many want a flippant salvation. They wouldn’t even treat their spouse that way. I believe that true salvation means that you will see your need of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ!
Most people lack true repentance. They lack the true contrition, the true brokenness. They are void of urgent desperation. They donâ€™t have a true relationship to Jesus Christ. They just “hang around” Jesusâ€¦ And they do not know what it means to bow to that which is eternal. To be concerned about that.
They want a gospel that doesnâ€™t ask for repentance. They want a gospel that has no threats. They want a gospel that allows them to have some superficial attachment to Jesus, but not a bowing to His absolute sovereignty at any cost. They want a gospel that fixes them in this world to make them more comfortable. Thatâ€™s not it. And thatâ€™s not what Jesus offers.
