Seven Reasons Salvation is Simple
#170 Seven Reasons Salvation is Simple
I am Fred Myers the founder of For the Fathers Ministry, and this is Faith by the Numbers.
Count your way to wisdom in number one-hundred-seventy of this series, Seven Reasons Salvation is Simple.
God is infinite, but salvation is simple and too often Christians forget who God is. God is the greatest communicator of all time. God did not expect that believers would need to first read the whole Bible before they would have sufficient understanding of salvation. If you had to have a full understanding of scripture to be saved, only the theologian would be in heaven. Every person only need to acknowledge what they already know. They are a sinner.
Seven Reasons Salvation is Simple:
- The Lord has made salvation known to all mankind.
- Paul states in Romans that what can be known about God is plain to all mankind.
- All scripture is profitable for training Christians for every good work, but the Gospel of God is to salvation.
- It is believers that devote themselves to scripture, but they do so only after salvation.
- The Bible is 1800 pages, but salvation is found in a few verses.
- God put eternity into all mankind, therefore all know they are sinners in need of forgiveness.
- Zechariah prophesied that Christ would give the knowledge of salvation for forgiveness to all. Jesus Christ’s first act after baptism was to preach the Gospel of God.
Each person knows they are a sinner and now they need to be told the solution for their sin. Given that the Gospel is simple, every Christian ought to be able to testify to the Gospel of God. God has granted you salvation, would you now be willing to go and tell just one person? If you will, the one that testifies and the one that hears will be blessed.

It is my prayer that many will count their way to wisdom through this series and find the peace that surpasses all understanding.
