Receiving and Following Christ
Our part is receiving and following Christ. Salvation is
like a successful marriage. It takes two. In a marriage it is not
enough if only the man or the woman is committed.
One partner can be full of love and enthusiasm while the
other is cold and distant. Of course this will not work. If you want to
enjoy the benefits of human love you have to receive it.
This is also true concerning God's love. You have to
willingly receive what Jesus did when He took your sins. He did this
for us whether we choose to receive it or not. We can open our hearts
to it or remain closed and indifferent.
I believe the reason you are reading this is because you
want to experience God's love or because you have already received
Jesus as your Lord.
Receiving salvation is not a passive acknowledgment that
Jesus died for you. It is an active willful decision to trust in Him
and know that He died and rose again for you.
