Joel 2:32 And anyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved.
Is it that simple? The answer is YES... and NO. All the Lord requires is belief..trust....faith. We call on HIM to save us. We trust Him and not ourselves.
If the Lord required money...only the rich could be saved
If the Lord required secret or special knowledge...only the wise could be saved
if the Lord required our works...only the strong and disciplined could be saved
He requires faith- which makes it possible for all to be saved.
I do not trust my good deeds. I do not trust anything to save me but the Lord Jesus Christ.
I will be before the Lord one day in judgement. When I see His holiness, I will be in total awe. My only hope is the covering of Christ. And He is enough.
Simple for us- impossible for us- Yet He makes the way- It was hard for Him and complex- He has made it very clear to us!
