Salvation Plain and Simple by Dr. Curtis Hutson


What Can You Do to Let God Know That You Are Satisfied With the Payment?

If you try to add anything to what Jesus has done, no matter how good the addition may be, you are saying by your actions, "I am not really satisfied with the payment Jesus made." It is not the death of Jesus Christ on the cross plus my baptism that saves. It is Jesus alone. Acts 4:12 says, "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." If I am trusting Christ plus baptism, then I am not really satisfied with the payment Jesus made for my sins.

To show that we are fully satisfied with the payment, we must cease to trust any and everything else and trust Jesus alone. I must cease to trust my good works, no matter how good they may be. I must cease to trust my church membership, no matter how good my church may be. I must cease to trust my baptism, no matter how beautiful the ordinance. I must cease to trust my good life, no matter how pure and noble. To trust anything other than Jesus and what He did at Calvary for salvation is to say to God, "I am not fully satisfied with the payment Your Son made for my sins. I feel I must have something else."

In order to show God that I am satisfied with the payment made, I must trust Jesus Christ completely. The Bible says in John 3:36, "He that believet on theSon hath everlasting life..." Now, dear friend, there is no promise in the Bible to those who partially believe on Christ. The promise is to those who believe on Christ. If I trust Jesus Christ ninety percent and something else ten percent, the ten percent destroys the ninety. The ten percent says I am not fully trusting Christ, and the Bible says in John 3:18, "He that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God." John 3:36, "He that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him."

Dr. George Truett told the story of a man who wasted a fortune in search of peace and happiness, then died in a cheap hotel. When they found his body, they found next to his bed this poem written with pencil on a piece of tablet paper:

I've tried in vain a thousand ways,
My fears to quell, my hopes to raise,
And all I need, the Bible says, is Jesus.
My soul is night; my heart is steel.
I cannot see; I cannot feel.
For light, for life, I must appeal to Jesus
He died; He lives; He reigns; He plead.
There is love in all HIs words and deeds.
All, all a guilty sinner needs is Jesus.
Though some will mock, and some will blame;
In spite of fear, in spite of shame,
I'll go to Him because His name is Jesus

Dear friend, have you let God know that you are satisfied withthe payment Jesus made for your sins by trusting Jesus and Him alone and nothing else for your salvation?
