Knowing Facts Will Not Save You

A chemist, lost and wondering in the sun baked desert, crazed with thirst, can mumble with thick tongue through cracked lips the chemical formula for water. The facts he knows well. But the facts won’t save him. He longs for the influence of water, the refreshment rushing through him like a river as water pours down his throat, washing the heat from his body and the madness from his brain. Only the influence of water will save him.

Likewise, knowing the facts of the Gospel will not save you. You must be influenced by its soul saving power and continue to be influenced. 

Do not settle for knowing where the well is. Go to the well. Drink deep. Drink often.
