Poor John lay dying. A visitor came to see him, one of the many who have religion but are strangers to Christ. She looked at him sadly, and said, "Oh, John, there is a great work to be done, and you have but little time to do it."
John sighed deeply. His days were numbered and he was too weak to do anything.
A Christian came to visit him, one who knew God's simple way of salvation. She said, "John, all the work needed for your salvation was done by Jesus on the cross, and you have nothing to do but believe and accept it."
John trusted that finished work, and was saved. How is it with you? Are you doing something yourself to obtain salvation, or are you trusting the One who has done all that work?
