After asking how he could be of assistance, Cameron, one of our operators, asked Christie a far more important question: “If you were to die today, do you know for sure you would go to Heaven?” Christie paused before answering, “Well, I’m not 100% sure, but it would be by the grace of God.”
Cameron asked what was keeping Christie from being totally sure of her salvation. Christie was worried she had not done enough good works or been a good enough person to earn salvation.
Cameron then asked what she was trusting in to get to Heaven. Christie thought she had to be a good person and love her neighbor in order to merit eternal life with Christ.
Christie was completely open to the verses Cameron showed her from God’s Word. After explaining Romans 3:23, 6:23, and Ephesians 2:8-9, Cameron asked Christie, “Would you like to accept Christ today?”
Christie trusted Christ right over the phone. Now she is 100% sure she is going to spend eternity in Heaven because of God’s grace.
