Becoming a Christian and living as one are two different things. God refers to one as justification and the other as sanctification. We might also understand these two distinctions as finding Jesus and following Jesus. Blur this distinction between salvation and discipleship and you’ll inevitably be left with a salvation of works and many inconsistencies in understanding the text of the Scriptures. Realizing salvation is free, we are then freed-up to pay the cost of living completely for Jesus out of love and gratitude not fear and uncertainty.
In many ways our lives are like a giant building project. And no matter how impressive the structure looks, it’s vulnerable to collapse unless it’s built on an immovable foundation. In addition to building on the foundation of Jesus, we also can embrace certain, basic truths of our faith. These basics of the faith form the building blocks that help us construct a meaningful life for God. These foundational truths are not just for baby-believers. They reside deep in the hearts of those of us who have walked with God for decades. And God always has more to teach us.
