Getting on “Team Jesus” is simple. We put our faith in him and we are on the team!
Jesus put it this way in John 6:28,29, “Then they asked him, ‘What must we do to do the works God requires?’ Jesus answered, ‘The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent” John 6:28-29.
Salvation is a matter of trusting, not trying, believing, not achieving, relying, not resolving. When we trust in Jesus, based on his finished work on the cross, we are signed up on his team…never to be kicked off by the Coach.
Yes, getting on Team Jesus is easy. But being a starter on his team takes 100% commitment. And, sadly, not every Christian is willing to pay that high price. And, if we’re honest, there are times even the most committed of us have fallen grossly short of starting team requirements.
