A gate and then a road

Gate and then a road

Gate and then a road

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.
