Answer

First, of course, the Protestant answer, biblical answer, is faith, and faith has a number of components. We need to understand what we're about to receive. We need to accept it as true, and we need to entrust ourselves to Jesus. So, that's our basic response. From that, of course, derives our entire Christian life. We order our lives in view of the sovereignty of Jesus in our calling, whether we be called as citizens, or parents, or in particular jobs. All of that comes under his lordship. So, it's a very comprehensive response, but it begins with trusting him for salvation.
