Confession from the heart?

I sometimes question the simplicity of the invitation to accept the gift of salvation. “Just accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior,” and you have it all. Now, don’t get me wrong—I actually do believe the acceptance of His gift is that simple. However, allowing Jesus to be the true Lord of your life is about “a new way of life,” not just a means to avoid a date with hell.

Throughout Jesus’ teachings, He tells us about the commitment we must make and the difficulty there is in following Him. He talks about “choosing between two masters: money and possessions or Him, about the “narrow gate” we must pass through, and He states that, “he who endures to the end will be the one who is saved.” Sounds like there is more to this salvation thing than just a simple, “Yes.”

Sometimes I feel we short-sell the coveted gift of God’s grace as a “get-out–of-jail-free card.” How many people do we see whose actions seem to say, “Now that I have accepted Jesus, I can get on back to the party,” living their lives as if nothing has changed?

God is not fooled! He knows the difference between a confession of the lips and a confession of the heart.
