You saved? Am I saved? If I got saved and then did what I know I did, am I still saved? What if I didn’t say it right, was I ever really saved in the first place? So many questions. If I’m honest, I’m pretty sure I don’t know those answers either. Let me introduce you to the new book by J.D. Greear called “Stop Asking Jesus Into Your Heart.”
Like the author, I too was saved when I was young. And then again, and again, and again. I’ve said the “sinners prayer” so many times I’ve lost count. If I’m really honest, I’m not sure I can actually tell you the day I was officially saved. If I continue to honesty, I still whisper that prayer often on Sunday mornings….just incase. Am I alone in this? I see that hand. I see that hand….
Well if you too feel that way, this is the book for you. First of all, it’s a quick read (approximately 130 pages). Don’t let the size of the book fool you though. This is full of useful and practical information to help accomplish two things:
1. Help Christians find assurance that they are, indeed, saved.
2. Help the unbeliever resting on a false assurance see the danger and turn to Christ
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The author tells a great story and if you’re like me, you’ll find yours in it too. It’s both interesting and educational. I walked away with an assurance that I am, indeed, saved. I can’t promise I won’t keep whispering that prayer every now and again but that’s just the way I’m wired. The book will allow you to find where you are on that spectrum and move forward knowing what you need to do.
