Description

 “If there were a Guinness Book of World Records entry for ‘amount of times having prayed the sinner’s prayer,’ I’m pretty sure I’d be a top contender,” says pastor and author J. D. Greear. He struggled for many years to gain an assurance of salvation and eventually learned he was not alone. “Lack of assurance” is epidemic among evangelical Christians.

In Stop Asking Jesus Into Your Heart, J. D. shows that faulty ways of present- ing the gospel are a leading source of the confusion. Our presentations may not be heretical, but they are sometimes misleading. The idea of “asking Jesus into your heart” or “giving your life to Jesus” often gives false assurance to those who are not saved—and keeps those who genuinely are saved from fully embracing that reality.

Greear unpacks the doctrine of assurance, showing that salvation is a posture we take to the promise of God in Christ, a posture that begins at a certain point and is maintained for the rest of our lives. He also answers the tough questions about assurance: What exactly is faith? What is repentance? Why are there so many warnings that seem to imply we can lose our salvation?

Such issues are handled with respect to the theological rigors they require, but Greear never loses his pastoral sensitivity or a communication technique that makes this message teachable to a wide audience from teens to adults.

    By Saved and I know it.
    Thankfully I don’t have to EARN my salvation. It was paid for in full by the death of my Savior Jesus Christ.

    This is by far the best book I have read. It was exactly what I needed to read. I know that I have questioned my salvation many times and I believe we all have but if you are like me, you have been embarrassed to bring it up. If you have ever questioned your salvation, I pray that you read this book with an open mind and open heart. This book does exactly what the author says that it will do. It will put away all doubt of your salvation if you are truly salved by The Lord, Jesus Christ.
