grace quotes

Quote Author: Curtis Hutson

A lot of people teach that Jesus’ death on the cross was necessary but that it was not enough. But Jesus didn’t come to help you save yourself; He came to save sinners. He didn’t make the down payment and say, ‘All right, here is the installment book. Make sure you keep up the payments.’ No, He paid it. In spinning a robe of your own righteousness, before the sun goes down you will find it all unraveled. He didn’t come to show me how to save myself; He came to save me. He didn’t come to help me save myself; He came to save me. Take your hands off it. Don’t touch it. Accept it like it is. Receive it as a free gift from God Almighty and be saved!

Faith and repentance are the same; they are not two separate decisions. One cannot trust Christ as Savior without repenting or changing his mind. The very fact that he trusts Christ for salvation shows that he has changed his mind regarding sin, salvation, and God.

If turning from your sins means to stop sinning, then people can only be saved if they stop sinning. And it is unlikely that anyone has ever been saved, since we don’t know anyone who has ever stopped sinning.

In addition to saying that the believer has everlasting life the moment he believes, Jesus adds the promise that he shall not come into condemnation; that is, the sentence of sin will never be put on the believer again.

I think there are many who would like to be saved but have been presented the faulty idea that repentance is turning from sin and therefore they are convinced that they cannot be saved. Oh, if we would only make salvation plain and explain to men that we are not saved by doing anything; rather we are saved by trusting in what Jesus has already done.

In spinning a robe of your own righteousness, before the sun goes down you will find it all unraveled.

If the believer sins after he is saved, God will chastise him. But the chastisement is not payment for sin. Jesus Christ paid for our sins two thousand years ago when He died on the cross.

There is not a verse in the Bible that teaches that God places the believer in a position to be saved provided he does other things. No. No. The Bible says He saves the believer.
