What are we saved from?
Bible teaches that we are saved from “wrath or penalty,” from God’s judgment of sin (Romans 5:9; 1 Thessalonians 5:9).
Our sin has separated us from God, and the consequence of sin is spiritual death,
(Romans 6:23), and a final judgement of hell, (Revelation 21).
Biblical salvation refers
to our deliverance from the consequence of sin, by way of Justification throgh the blood of Jesus Christ.
Who does the saving?
Only God can forgive sin and justify us from sin’s penalty. (Romans 5:1, Galations 3:24, 2 Timothy 1:9; Titus 3:5).
How does God save?
In the Biblical teaching of salvation, God redeems us through the blood of Christ (Ephesians 1:7) Specifically, it was Jesus’ death on the cross and subsequent resurrection
that achieved our salvation. (Romans 5:10).
Scripture is clear that salvation is the gracious, unmerited gift of God (Ephesians 2:5, 8) and is only available through faith in Jesus Christ (Acts 4:12).
