(Romans 10:9)That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
- Standard push to be a real Christian
Nothing special. Uses the story of Herod with John the Baptist and Rom 10:9 to say don't be like Herod afraid what others will think of you. If you are already saved there is not much for you to get out of this.
- Powerful message
Amazing message. I haven't quite learned the art of kicking people up the backside as gracefully as Mr Begg. Very powerful message, very gentle delivery.
- Good teaching on salvation.
Although I found this to be a good teaching on the meaning of salvation as it comes from the heart, I sensed that it lacked adequate closure.
Even if we go to the alter because it is the right thing to do, unless the Father has chosen us (we do not choose God, He chooses us) we will not have the divine deposit in our heart to truly believe and follow through with His sanctification process.
However, I felt that this was an excellent teaching regarding salvation, not as a line that we cross, but as the beginning of a process that only God can complete through a willing heart.
