3 BIGGEST MISTAKES ABOUT SALVATION (EPHESIANS 2:8) (7-8-2018)

MISUNDERSTANDINGS & MISTAKES

EPHESIANS 2:8 SHARES TRUTHS WE MUST UNDERSTAND.

3 BIGGEST MISTAKES ABOUT SALVATION

3-  MISUNDERSTANDING GRACE – “by grace you have been saved”

GRACE DOESN’T COME THROUGH SACRAMENTS.

GRACE DOESN’T COME THROUGH EXPERIENCES.  (TITUS 3:5)

2-  MISUNDERSTANDING GOODNESS – “not of yourselves”

WE CAN’T TRUST IN THE LACK OF BAD WE DO.  (Rm. 3:10, 23, 6:23, 7:18)

WE CAN’T TRUST IN THE GOOD WE DO.  (2:9-10)

IN WORKS, WE’RE HANDING GOD A THANK YOU NOTE, NOT SUBMITTING AN IOU TO HIM.

2 MEN IN SCRIPTURE SHOW US HOW RIDICULOUS THIS CLAIM IS:  MARK 10:17-20, LUKE 15:29.

1-  MISUNDERSTANDING GOD – “It is the gift of God”

GOD REVEALS HIMSELF IN HIS WORD.

GOD IS LOVE, AND GOD IS LIGHT.

THE GIFT OF SALVATION MUST BE RECEIVED THROUGH REPENTANCE.

DON’T BE MISTAKEN ABOUT SALVATION.

THE BEST SITUATION IS TO BE SAVED AND KNOW YOU ARE.

THE WORST CONDITION IS TO THINK YOU’RE SAVED WHEN YOU’RE NOT.
