Taking the Medicine (Romans 10:13)

A person may believe everything the Bible says about Christeven that He died for his sins and arose from the dead. But if the sinner refuses to “take him”that is, to trust Him and His work on the cross in his behalfhe will be just as lost as if he had openly and blatantly denied Jesus. Saving faith, you see, is not simply recognizing that certain facts about Christ are true. It is reaching out by faith, personally accepting God’s remedy for sin, and entrusting the destiny of our souls to Him for eternity. It is saying, “Save me, Lord Jesus. I believe You can and will. That’s “taking the medicine” – that’s receiving Christ! – Richard W. De Haan

Look unto Him where’er thou be,

Look unto Him and live;

He’ll speak the word and set you free,

For life is His to give. – McLendon

Faith is not just believing that Jesus can save, it’s trusting that He will.
