I wanted to share with you a comment from Cindy at FarmgirlCyn about repentance.
Repentance is the first step towards salvation. We often say "Half a gospel is no gospel at all." I think the "half Christians that Pastor Ellis is referring to are the ones to whom Jesus might be saying, "Depart from Me, I NEVER KNEW YOU." Those folks believe they are Christ followers. They do all sorts of things in His name...who else do we know that would presume to use His name except for those who think they are believers?
Law and grace...they go hand in hand. The Law being the tutor that leads men to Christ to begin with. (via conviction by the Holy Spirit).
Be sure to check out Cindy’s blog. Not only is she a woman who loves God with all her heart, mind, soul and strength, but she is an excellent cook and shares many a recipe and what’s going on in her life. Thank you Cindy!
