What is Salvation

Salvation is being forgiven by God for all the wrong things that you have done. That's it. But that doesn’t really explain it, it doesn’t explain the depths behind it. True salvation is only found through Jesus Christ John 14:6. So there is only one way to gain salvation and that is through Jesus.

Salvation also goes beyond a full pardon, Christ doesn’t merely balance the books but has actually given us an inheritance because in salvation we are adopted into his family. Going to heaven is actually going home for Christians, it’s going to be with your family. (Ephesians 1:5) But until then, we have a family here also, a Christian family.

Salvation then is not just being forgiven for your sins but it is actually what we call being born again, we are born into a new family, God adopts us into his family through salvation.

Why do I need it?

We have all done things that we know are wrong, if we look at the ten commandments, we realise that we are guilty of breaking all of them. (Exodus 20:3-17) So, we have broken God’s commandments and this means that we are not good in God’s sight. (Romans 3:10-12) God has a perfect law that we have broken and when we break it, it’s called sinning. God is also just, we wouldn’t expect a judge to let people get away with crimes they have committed.

In the same way, God cannot let us get away with the sins we commit. We are all sinners and have all done wrong, we all need salvation, we all need to be rescued from ourselves. Because God is just, he must punish sin, he therefore, must punish us.

The wonderful thing about Jesus Christ is that he was punished for us. A perfect, innocent man was crucified so that God could put all of our sins to his account. Jesus was punished for what we should be punished with, he is a substitute. Without salvation, we end up being punished for our sin as we rightly should be. No substitute, no salvation and therefore at the judgement day, no one to plead our innocence. Your sin shall be judged and it shall be punished. (John 3:36) Salvation is free, it is offered to you, Jesus offers it with open arms. (Matthew 11:28-30)

Who’s it for?

It is for anyone who asks it. If you truly, genuinely and humbly admit your sin before God in prayer and ask him to save you, he will. There is no catch, no qualifications, you just confess everything to God and tell him you are sorry for it and want to be forgiven. The only thing you need is faith, faith in God’s power to save you (Isaiah 45:22)

Can I have it?

Yes, the bible is very clear that if you believe in Jesus and wholeheartedly believe that he died for your sins, you will be saved (Romans 10:9-10)
