Stop Asking Jesus Into Your Heart: The Teen Edition

,

Why is it so difficult to know that you are saved?
The idea of “asking Jesus into your heart” or “giving your life to Jesus” often gives false assurance to those who are not saved—and keeps those who genuinely are saved from fully embracing that reality.
Greear unpacks the doctrine of assurance and answers the tough questions: What exactly is faith? What is repentance? Why are there so many warnings that seem to imply we can lose our salvation?
Such issues are handled with respect to the theological rigors they require, but Greear and Gaston are careful to present the material with a pastoral sensitivity and communication technique that makes this message teachable and applicable to teens.
