Understanding the GREAT SALVATION

When God saw the condition of His scattered people; He saw they have no shepherd, No one who guides them, No one who protect them.

God made a decision to sent His PRECIOUS SON to us in order to guide and protect us spiritually.

"For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him." JOHN 3:16-17. By His gracious love, God sent His Son to the world to SAVE us. This is how God care for our SALVATION.

Salvation is like a successful marriage. It takes two. It is not enough if only the woman is committed. One partner can be full of love and enthusiasm, while the other is cold and distant. Of course this will not work! If you want to enjoy human love, you have to receive it. This is also true concerning God’s love. Therefore we need to open our hearts to receive this gift of salvation God has for us and willingly follow Him. God loves you and He has a wonderful plan of peace, purpose, and fulfillment for you as an individual.

The plan is for you to obtain salvation through JESUS CHRIST His Son.

1 Thessalonians 5:9: “For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ”

What is Salvation?

Salvation is God’s love gift to those who believe in Him. Romans 1:16: “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth…”

Sometimes it is called the “new birth”, or being “born again.” John 3:3:”Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

This means that just as you were born physically into the human family, you are born spiritually into God’s family through salvation.

Salvation is having your sins forgiven. Luke 1:77”To give knowledge of slavation unto his people by the remission of their sins.” Romans 3:23-24 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by this grace through the the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.”

But we can receive forgiveness of sins through salvation by believing in JESUS CHRIST.

Salvation is having fellowship with God”. Salvation gives you the assurance of eternal life. Romans 6:23:For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through JESUS CHRIST our LORD.”

Salvation gives you the freedom to pursue the ultimate purpose of God in your life.

Galatians 2:20 “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”
