The Gospel always requires a response. No response is a response. The Bible teaches that anyone who confesses their sin before God, repents (to turn away) of that sin, and believes in Christ will be saved (Romans 10:9; Acts 2:38-39). That’s GOOD NEWS! Once we confess, repent, and believe, scripture teaches us that at the moment of Salvation:
We have been made new (2 Corinthians 5:17).
We have been given a new heart with new desires (Ezekiel 36:26).
The Holy Spirit abides in us (Ephesians 1:13-14).
