“Believing the right things about Jesus isn’t enough. You’re not adopted as God’s child until you confess and turn away from your wrongdoing and receive the freely offered gift of forgiveness and eternal life that Jesus purchased with his death on the cross. Until you do that, you’ll always be on the outside looking in.”
You must enter the sheep gate HIS way. Or you will never really be inside. Repent. Genuinely. Surrender to Christ as LORD. If you have, your life will bear witness. A new creation cannot be hidden. A resurrected soul cannot continue to bear the stench of death. And a corpse can never smell their own rot. But everyone else can.
