"For God is not a God of confusion but of peace..."

-1 Corinthians 14:33

Many times, when asking someone about their salvation, the response has been, "I'm doing the best I can," or "I have my own religion," or "All roads lead to heaven." More than once, I have been told by a Native American, "You have your way, we have our way." Perhaps this illustrates that many are confused and do not know what to believe. Too often, the gospel is presented without unity of what is required to be saved. Paul asked the Thessalonians to pray for him "in order that I may make it clear in the way I ought to speak." There is no confusion or lack of clarity in what God has revealed to us about salvation. How do you confuse "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you shall be saved." or "There is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men, by which we must be saved." If God has made it clear to us who now believe surely, we can make it clear and what confusion to those who have not believed. Share what God has shared; clarity will be there, and confusion will be gone. Be encouraged!
