“Asking Jesus Into Your Heart” Simply Does Not Answer the Problem

The gospel is that Christ has borne our guilt and has been raised for our justification and life, interceding now at the Father’s right hand.  It is this objective work of Christ outside of us, even now defending us in heaven from every accusation of Satan, that makes the gospel truly Good News even for us as we struggle in the Christian life.  “Asking Jesus into  your heart” simply does not answer the problem identified in the Scriptures.
