Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas, And brought them out, and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” (Acts 16:29-30)~~ Can a person really believe and be saved? What if they still have sin in their lives? What if they know nothing about the Bible? What if Christian commitment is unknown to them? The response a lot of us may throw out there would actually be our own set of questions: Did you repent? Did you confess? Did you forsake everything? Did you pray a sinner’s prayer? Faith doesn’t even come into question because Faith alone doesn’t require a prerequisite event! Rather than trust in simple faith, we want to add endless qualifications to “real” faith. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is so simple that man continually feels the need to complicate it. Too many of us wouldn’t be happy with Paul’s simple answer today, but it really IS this simple: “And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.” (Acts 16:31)~Here is the sum of the whole gospel, the covenant of grace in a few words. No rituals, no special ceremonies, no pre-qualifications, no prerequisites. Plain and simple: Believe and have Faith in what you believe!!!
