A man came to my door one day to ask me if I were saved
He said, “If Jesus came tonight would you go to Heaven or are you by sin enslaved?”
I deliberated how to answer him. Does he think Salvation is an instant thing?
If he meant have I given myself to Christ and has he cleansed my soul of transgression
I would have to say, “He is working on it. For me it is a lifetime decision
My Jesus told me “He who endures until the end, the same shall be saved
This tells me that my salvation comes from a lifetime of practice to improve the way that I behave
So, today I am a work in progress fashioned at the hands of my Master
He gives me faith and the courage to admit my faults and failure and to overcome any disaster
Ask me if I’m saved and I will say, “Not yet,” but I know I will be
And I will walk with Father, Son and Holy Ghost through all eternity
How bout YOU?
