Pragmatic Compendium

inspiring the pragmatic practice of intimacy with Christ

grace is FREE.

“If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9

“God does not ask us to work to achieve salvation. All he asks us to do is believe. There is not one verse in the Bible that says anything about believing and doing good works so that you will be saved. Not one.”

“Our works are evidence of our new life. They don’t cause our new life.”

“So stop trying and start believing. Take the free gift.”

from Saved: Answers That Can Save Your Life, by Troy Schmidt
