Salvation is not the reward for a well lived Christian life.
Bruce Case is an airline pilot and also an elder in our church, First Boynton. Near the end of his sermon on Sunday, he made the statement that I have quoted above.
The statement serves as an important warning to many in our culture and probably in our churches. These folks might not say out loud that God is rewarding them with salvation based on their actions or performance, but they often live and talk like it works that way.
