I’ve been wanting to read this book for a long time. Finally borrowed it off of Pastor A’s shelf.

JMac wrote the book in response to the issue of people who deny lordship salvation. I didn’t even know that was an issue until recently. I assume everyone knows that when you ask Jesus to be your Savior, you understand He becomes your Lord. However, there are Bible teachers who teach otherwise.

Those who deny lordship salvation thinks a person is saved if he believes in Jesus but doesn’t obey Jesus. His life looks nothing like Jesus or do what He taught. His “faith” in the facts about Jesus that he died and rose again for His sins will get him into heaven.

From the clear explanation of the gospel according Jesus, I don’t see how anyone could deny lordship salvation. However, I do see my own error when I present the gospel to someone saying that “you just have to believe.” Even the devil believes. But it’s putting your trust in a person with your life, not just believing a set of facts about this person.

I do think the initial faith is a simple believe. But discipleship must happen and the fruit of that would be a Christ-like life and love for Christ. If there is no fruit, there was no true faith.

This book encouraged me to be a disciple of Jesus who surrenders to His Lordship in everything, including carrying the cross of suffering.

Each chapter of the book is like a sermon or a mini-book from JMac. It’s not an easy read because of the concepts, but it’s definitely easy to understand.
