“What Does ‘Being Saved’ R-E-A-Lly Mean?”
Another Patton Associates S-M-A-R-TBriefing™
Biblically ‘R-E-A-L’ is my acronym for Relational ~ Engaging ~ Authentic ~ Life-giving.
Jesus divided the sheep from the goats based on what they did towards the least and the lost, not based on whether or not they had prayed a “Sinners Prayer“.
Might “praying the prayer” have become a kind of entrance rite into The Kingdom of God for some Protestants in the same way that the Catholic and some liturgical churches put their faith in infant baptism. They believe that saves them.
The core issue outlined throughout the New Covenant is NOT: “Are you saved? Nor is it: “Do you know Jesus?
The core issue solely is: “Are you walking with Jesus? Does He know you …as He warns us in Matthew 7:21-23.
“Does the Spirit testify to your spirit that you are a child of God”? (Romans 8:16 & graphic to the right)
Please let me have your questions and comments about what you’d add to, or disagree with, about the above. Also, let me know how else I might be useful to you in any way?
