Stop Asking Jesus Into Your Heart by JD Greear

Synopsis:
Subtitled: How To Know You Are Really Saved.

Review:
Stop Asking Jesus Into Your Heart is written for evangelical Christians who wonder if “praying the sinner’s prayer” is enough for salvation. Greear offers a cogently written exegesis of the Reformed view of justification by grace through faith in Christ to deepen the believer’s theological understanding of the “once and for all” nature of salvation. My favorite example is this–if you want to know whether you sat down in a chair, you don’t look back and try to remember how you were feeling when you made the decision to sit. You simply feel the chair underneath you, holding you up. It’s the same with the Christian faith. When we have doubts, we look to the nature of God and the work of Christ, not our own emotional state or frame of mind.
