"Far Too Easy a Way"

The simplicity of the gospel prompts many people to say that believing on the Lord Jesus Christ is "far too easy" a way to get to heaven.
Thank God, it is an "easy" way to be saved.
It is "easy" for us, because the shedding of His precious blood, the enduring of the wrath of God against our sins, and the difficult work, has all been done by the Lord Jesus Christ Himself.
It was not "easy" for Him to be mocked and insulted by men.
It was not "easy" for Him to be scourged, spat upon and crucified.
It was not "easy" in the moment of His humiliation and agony to be forsaken by God.
Though an easy way for us, it is God's only way of saving sinners, and if you are not saved in that way, you will never be saved at all.
"To him that worketh not, but believeth on Him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness." Rom. 4:55But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. (Romans 4:5).
