“Biblical Salvation,” is God’s way of providing his children deliverance from sin and spiritual death through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ died for our sins. He paid the price for our death.
In the Old Testament, the concept of Salvation is rooted in Israel’s deliverance from Egypt in The Book of Exodus. The New Testament reveals the source of salvation in Jesus Christ. By faith in Jesus Christ, believers are saved from God’s Judgment of sin and its consequence, eternal death. Everyone needs salvation because we have all sinned. (All have sinned and come short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23)
When Adam and Eve rebelled, man was separated from God through sin. Our death is not sufficient to cover the payment for sin. Only a perfect, spotless sacrifice offered in just the right way, can pay for our sin. Jesus the perfect God man, came to offer the pure, complete and everlasting sacrifice to remove, alone, and make eternal payment for sin. Why? Because God loves us and desires our intimate relationship with us.
This is why Salvation is very important in many lives. Thank you and God bless.
