In Salvation Seed #1, Pat Fraher and Darron George answered the question, ‘what is salvation’ by providing the illustration of Jesus as our defence lawyer, securing our ‘not guilty’ verdict by His death on the cross. Now, George and Fraher build upon the foundation laid in Salvation Seed #1, by asking the question, “how do I become saved,” in Salvation Seed #2.
They find that the answer for this question comes down to two elements; belief and trust.
George opens the seed by recalling some early conversations between himself and Fraher on the topic of faith.
“My question was, ‘we know salvation exists; so how do I become saved?” George said.
The basis for this answer is found in scripture, in John 3:16:
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. – John 3:16
“The key words in that scripture are ‘believes’ and ‘Him,” Fraher said. “This is so important because we’re all trying to get to the same place, and there’s one of two things that we’re going to hear; ‘depart from me, I never knew you’, or ‘well done, good and faithful servant,” he said.
In their Salvation Seed #2 message, George and Fraher utilized video clips, first from pastor John Piper and then followed by Michael Durham, to help articulate the two elements of true salvation -belief and trust-, and that these are actually a function, one of the other.
What does it mean to believe? Belief is trust.
“Do you believe? Do you know what it means to believe? What would your statement be if He were standing here today?” – Darron George
We believe that you will be stirred by this critical message, and pray that you will spend time in reflection and prayer with God to ensure that the most important issue we all must and will make a decision on, is settled.
