“Therefore, we conclude that a man is justified by faith apart from the deeds of the law.” Romans 3:28. Trust. This is one of the most difficult concepts to communicate to non-Christians. They have a hard time understanding that they can’t do anything to earn God’s favor.  Jesus paid the penalty for all our sins when He died on the cross.  To receive God’s forgiveness, eternal life, and a right relationship with Him, all we need to do is cast ourselves on His mercy and trust Him to save us.  So many people constantly struggle to become Christians.  If they would only trust Christ, they would realize that He does the saving.  Have you been attempting to save yourself? If so, then stop trying and start trusting! Salvation is not a matter of trying but trusting.
