The other day I was doing a Bible study with a friend. My opening question I like to ask is whether you are 100% sure that you will go to heaven. She wasn’t. She thought of her sins and couldn’t be 100% sure that God would accept her into heaven. But at the end of the study half an hour or so later, she was 100% sure. Praise God!
The study I was using is from Matthias Media and is called, Just For Starters. Every now and then you find a study or series of studies that just “nails it”. I have to admit that I am yet to find an investigating Christianity course that I think really nails it. There are many that are good, but none that I have seen that really nail it! But when it comes to a gospel presentation, Matthias media’s Two Ways to Live “nails it”. And when it comes to a set of studies for Christians new to the faith or ‘young’ in the faith, Just for Starters nails it. I can’t speak highly enough of these ministry tools. Just for Starters was written for following up new Christians, but it really is good for any Christian who could use a good grounding in the basics, even if they have been Christian for 50 years.
6 For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. 7 For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— 8 but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God.
