I have a few friends who profess to be Christians but do not live their lives with any urgency or passion for Him. Being candid, this scares me to death. I’m scared because I don’t want them to deceive themselves thinking because they once said a prayer, and maybe still pray to God for help and even sometimes thanks, that they have a relationship with Him. Salvation is not an event. It’s a process.
It is a lifelong commitment to a relationship with Jesus Christ. You cannot put our salvation up on a shelf. It is a living, breathing, vibrant thing. If it is not, I am scared it may not be there at all. No one lives the life of a Christ-follower perfectly. We will all mess up and some days are better than others. But those who have surrendered their lives to Jesus will always be motivated to love and serve Him.
