You are not saved because you prayed a prayer or went to the front row during an evangelistic event. Here, David Platt talks about “the sinner’s prayer” and what a biblical response to the gospel looks like.

If you are looking for a few resources on conversion and response to the gospel, let me suggest two books. J.D. Greear has written a wonderful little book called Stop Asking Jesus into  Your HeartI recently reviewed this book. Also, Gordon Smith has written a more comprehensive and academic book on conversion called Transforming Conversion: Rethinking the Language and Contours of Christian InitiationSmith’s book is one of the most helpful and insightful books I have read in the past two years.
