It is the Death, Burial and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. 

I Corinthians 15:2-4, “By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you.  Otherwise, you have believed in vain.  For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance:  that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures.”


It is freedom from sin. 


Romans 8:1-2, “There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death.”


It is to experience spiritual peace and hope.  


Romans 5:1-2, “Since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand.  And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God.”


It is restoring fellowship between God and man. 


Ephesians 2:14-16, “For he himself is our peace, who has made the two one and has destroyed the barrier, the diving wall of hostility,…  His purpose was to create in himself one new man out of the two, thus making peace, and in this one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he put to death their hostility.”


It is Jesus representing us before God. 


Romans 5:6-8, “You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.  Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die.  But God demonstrates his own love for us in this:  While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”


It is the promise of sharing in eternal life with God. 


I John 5:13, “I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God that you may know that you have eternal life.”




It frees people from sin. 


Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”


It frees people from spiritual death. 


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


It eliminates the need to do good deeds to receive eternal life. 


Ephesians 2:8-9, “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast.”


It prevents one from being spiritually lost. 


I Thessalonians 5:9, “For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.” 


It unites one with Jesus Christ. 


Titus 2:14, “Jesus gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.”


It leads one to God’s grace. 


Titus 2:11, “The grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men.”




The serious nature of sin presents a great problem. Sin is a rebellion against a holy God and involves guilt which must be removed.  The only solution for sin is Jesus Christ.  The plan originated with God and His love for mankind.  By His love, He sent His Son to die on a tree and pay the price for our salvation. 


Jesus died for our sins, and did for us what we could never do for ourselves.  However, this salvation is not complete until men and women respond to it.  This free gift is to be accepted by those who put their faith in Jesus.  The result of accepting God’s love and salvation is that it secures a reunion with God, and fellowship with His Son Jesus Christ.   


It can only happen through the forgiveness of sins.  It is provided by Jesus’ death on the cross.  People are now able to share in this common salvation as they are added by God to the number of those being saved.


Questions for consideration:

What attracts me the most to Jesus’ salvation?

Is there a way to receive salvation without believing in Jesus?  If so, what is it?

What does it mean to be saved from sin so I can be saved for eternal life?

Besides the forgiveness of sin, what other blessings does salvation provide?

Is it time for me to receive the salvation of the Lord?
