What is Salvation?

 

        The biblical idea is for a person to turn from their sin (repentance) and embrace Christ as their Lord and Savior (belief).

                        Mark 1:15

                        Romans 10:9

                        Acts 2:38

 

How is this accomplished?

 

1.  A person needs to understand God's holiness.

                        Leviticus 11:44-45

                        1 Peter 1:16

                        Hebrews 12:14

God is Holy

2.  God hates sin-everybody is a sinner.

                        Exodus 20:5

                        Mark 2:17

                        Isaiah 57:20-21

                        Romans 3:10-18, 23

All have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God.

3.  As a result, the sinner is worthy of death.

                        James 1:15

                         Romans 6:23

                         Hebrews 9:27

The Wages of Sin is Death

4.  The good news-"the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."

     He is utterly pure and sinless      Hebrews 4:15

     1 Peter 2:22-23

     1 John 3:5

 

     The Sinless One became a sacrifice for

     our sin

5.  God's demand of the sinner-Repent and turn to Christ as Lord and Savior.

     Repent!!!

                         Matthew 10:34-38

                         John 12:24-25
