Stop Living a Half-Life with God // Ask Pastor John
God alone secured our salvation. We can take no credit. This biblical view of salvation keeps us humble and grounded.
Longtime listener Melanie Corelli recently wrote us an amazing testimony of how John Piper’s 1985 sermon on Romans 8:28–30 changed her life as she came to understand how she was saved. It was an incredible, encouraging email to receive, and it’s great to be reminded of the real-life implications of our theology. And hoping the sermon would help others, Melanie sent us a clip of Pastor John explaining why God’s sovereignty in our salvation matters for life. Here’s what he said.
