MORE THAN REDEMPTION
A new Christian was meeting with Pastor Alonzo in his office.
“You’ve been redeemed, Maria, but there’s more to salvation than just having your sins forgiven.”
“I thought that’s what it’s all about, getting my sins forgiven so I can go to heaven,” she replied.
“That’s only half the story. You were saved from your sins, but you were also made alive to be a little Christ. Redemption is a from and salvation is a to.”
“So, after my sins are forgiven, I need to be alive in Christ?”
“You’ve got it,” said the pastor. That’s what Scripture says.”
