What More Do You Want?

  What More Do You Want?  

From: Echoes of Grace - Living Waters

A man told me one day how he got peace with God. For years his wife, a Christian, took him here and there to hear the gospel preached. He knew the plan of salvation well, and, being afraid to die in his sins, he became increasingly anxious to have peace with God.
"About three months ago," he said, "I stayed behind at the close of a gospel meeting and told the preacher what I wanted."
The preacher asked him: "Did the Lord Jesus die for you?"
"Yes, I believe He did," he answered.
"And was He raised for you?"
"Yes," he said again.
"What more do you want?"
At once he saw the truth. He accepted the blessing by faith, and he went away rejoicing in salvation.
The Lord Jesus Christ had died for him, and was raised for him. What more did he want? Surely nothing!
And what more do you want? And what more can you have? Surely nothing!

If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that
 God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. (Rom. 10:9.)

Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures; and that He was buried, and 
that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures. (1 Cor. 15:3,4.)

Christ Alone Can Save!

Reformation will not save you. 
Religiousness will not save you.

Repetition of prayers will not save you.

Rivers of tears will not save you.

Rules and regulations for your life will not save you.

If any of these, or all of these combined, could have saved you, Christ need not have died. But "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." Acts 4:12
