Luke 6:31


SALVATION – is one of the promises of God to all believers: to be given the gift of eternal life. To be “saved” in the full sense of the word means to have received eternal life. The word salvation is also used to describe the process we go through before we can receive eternal life. Here are some scriptures about eternal life:

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

John 14:6 “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

Romans 10:9 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”

Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God Is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Salvation - the saving of a person from sin or its consequences especially in the life after death the saving from danger, difficulty, or evil.

Salvation is being saved from the righteous judgment of God Almighty upon the sinner. All who have sinned against God are under the judgment of God. God must punish the sinner. But God has provided a way of escape so that people will not face His righteous judgment.

Salvation and Resurrection

God is holy and loving, He must show each quality equally. The way salvation works: All of us have sinned against God and deserve judgment. But Jesus never sinned. He lived the Law of God. “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).

The crucifixion became the place where Jesus bore our sins in His body and suffered in our place. “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed,” (Isaiah 53:5). “He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, ad as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth” (Isaiah 53:7). Jesus – He was beaten with leather lashes often resulted in sever loss of blood. He was forced to carry the upper crossbeam to the execution site then fastened to the crossbeam on the ground with nails through the wrist [half naked] his feet were nailed to the stake. And they lifted up the cross.

LET THE RECORD SHOW By his death, God accomplished the greatest good of all the redemption of sinners. He is the bread of life, the water of life, the light of the world, the door, and the good shepherd. SALVATION – deliverance from the power of sin: redemption. In the Old Testament, the word “salvation” sometimes refers to deliverance from danger (Jer. 15:20), deliverance of the weak from an oppressor (Ps. 35:9-10), the healing of sickness (Is. 38:20), and deliverance from blood guilt and its consequences (Ps. 51:14). It may also refer to national deliverance from captivity (Ps. 14:7). But salvation finds its deepest meaning in the spiritual realm of life. Our universal need for salvation is one of the clearest teachings of the Bible.

The need for salvation goes back to the removal of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden (Genesis3). After the fall, the lives of people were marked by strife and difficulty. Increasingly, corruption and violence dominated their world (Gen. 6:11-13). When God destroyed the world with the flood, He also performed the first act of salvation by saving Noah and his family. These eight people became the basis of another chance for mankind. The salvation of Noah and his family was viewed by the apostle Peter as a pattern of the full salvation we receive in Christ (1 Pet. 3:18-22).

Even Israel’s return from the Captivity, however, failed to fulfill all their hopes (Hag. 2:3). So a new understanding arose: the full realization of God’s purpose of salvation would involve the coming of a completely new age (Is. 65:17-25). This doctrine of salvation reached it fulfillment in the death of Christ on our behalf. Jesus’ mission was to save the world from sin and the wrath of God (Matt. 1:21; John 12:47; Rom. 5:9). During His earthly ministry, salvation was brought to us by His presence and the power of faith (Luke 19:9-10). Now, our salvation is based on His death and resurrection (Mark10:25).

The salvation that comes through Christ may be described in three tenses: past, present, and future. When people believe in Christ, they are saved (Acts 16:31). But we are also in the process of being saved from the power of sin (Rom. 8:13; Phil. 2:12). Finally, we shall be saved from the very presence of sin (Rom. 13:11; Titus 2:12-13). God releases into our lives today the power of Christ’s resurrection (Rom. 6:4) and allows us a foretaste of our future life as His children (Cor. 1:22; Eph. 1:14). Our experience of salvation will be complete when Christ returns (Heb. 9:28) and the kingdom of God is fully revealed (Matt. 13:41-43).
