The Judgment Seat of Christ? 2

Our salvation is secure in Jesus.  We did nothing to deserve or earn our salvation and we do nothing to maintain it.  We cannot.  If we could become saved or stay saved through our own effort or even in part by our own effort, then the whole message of the gospel would be quite different.  We would no longer be saved by grace through faith, but we would be saved by grace and works.  I will be very clear: if our works can get us into Heaven or keep us out, then we are not totally dependent on the love of God in Jesus. 

So, as we head toward the judgment seat of Christ, those who are believers have nothing to fear.  Either we are saved completely by the work of Jesus, or we have no hope at all.  We could never be good enough, even in adding “our part” to His.  If salvation is ninety-nine percent from Jesus and one percent from us, we have no hope. 

Bottom line: our salvation will not be up for grabs at the judgment seat of Christ.

    Your standing on The Truth will free more folks faster than
    all the brow-beating threats any denomination can afford. The
    Word is banded about, misinterpreted, out of context, The
    Church members that are being told they can loose their Salvation live in desperate fear (just the control that Satan and his minons desire), working, praying to a far off God, just never relax in the Arms of our Loving Savior….live in their flesh and therefore miss the true walk IN CHRIST. I just don’t understand how we can live so many years with
    so much Truth out here….when born-again, given Life from Jesus, we accept death matter of factly. Is it any wonder that we are a messed up society and world.
