What is salvation?

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

What It Isn't

Salvation is not  EARNED.

Titus 3:5  Not by works of righteousness, which we have done, but according to His mercy he saved us.

Salvation is not  INHERITED.

John 1:12-13 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

What It Is

Salvation is GIVEN.

God GAVE His Son, Jesus Christ, as a sacrifice for our sin.

John 3:16  For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotton Son, that whosoever believeth in Him, should not perish, but have everlasting Life.

Salvation is through REPENTANCE.

Romans 3:23  For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God

Mark 2:17  When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. 

1 John 1:9  If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 

Salvation is RECEIVED.

John 1:12  But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name

Isaiah 1:18  Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

Salvation gives LIFE.

John 1:4  In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

Salvation is our PARDON.

Romans 8:1  There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
