One thing that I hope I have made clear enough is that although God saves us entirely as a result of grace and not because of anything we have done, because it is hime that has changed us on the inside, we should expect such a work to have an impact in lives for the good. We cannot simply say “I believe” and continue in our old life if we want to say we have been saved. Spurgeon put it like this in soulwinner: “A drunken man came up to Rowland Hill, one day, and said, ‘I am one of your converts, Mr. Hill.’ ‘I daresay you are,’ replied that shrewd and sensible preacher; ‘but you are none of the Lord’s, or you would not be drunk.'”
