What is meant by Salvation?
SALVATION means to be rescued from sin and its punishment and set free to know, love and serve God.
Jesus replied, "I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave to sin...if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed". John 8:34, 36.
ALL PEOPLE have turned away from God and broken the law of God. The Bible calls this sin.
All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23
LEFT TO OURSELVES, there is no recues, and the justice of God requires our eternal damnation in the terrors of hell.
Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God's wrath remains on him. John 3:36
VICTORY over sin was obtained when God sent His Son Jesus to earth. Jesus obeyed God's laws perfectly, yet He died to pay for the sins of all who believe.
This is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. 1 John 4:10
ADMITTING that our sin has put us in a desperate situation is the first step in our rescue. If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins. 1 John 1:8, 9.
TAKING the free gift of Jesus' payment for our sin makes us "not guilty" in God's sight.
The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23
IN GRATITUDE for such love, we follow Him in obedience and sacrificial service.
Therefore, I urge you, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God. Romans 12:1
ONLY JESUS has provided the way to salvation.
Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved. Acts 4:12
NOW is the time to make your decision.
Now is the time of God's favor, now is the day of salvation. 2 Corinthians 6:2
