Read this today and it so resonated with me.
Salvation is not a product, but a relationship. It is not finished when one trusts Christ; it has only begun (a gate and then a road, cf. Matthew 7)! It is not a fire insurance policy, nor a ticket to heaven, but a life of growing Christlikeness. We have a proverbial saying that says the longer a couple lives together, the more they begin to look alike. This is the goal of salvation!
We hear the question “When someone is saved, are they always saved?” I wonder whether the motivation for the question is due to self.
