Salvation ( Soteriology); Is the deliverance from the power of sin; redemption. The need for salvation goes back to the removal of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden ( Genesis 3). Once sin entered the world, mankind needed deliverance. The salvation that comes through Christ Jesus may be described in three tenses: past, present, and future. When we believe in Christ, we are saved (Acts 16:31). But we are also in the process of begin saved from the power of our sins. ( Romans 813; Phil. 2:12) And , we shall be saved from the very presence of sin ( Romans 13:11; Titus 2:12-13). God releases into our lives today the power of Christ's resurrection ( Romans 6:4) and allows us to foretaste of our future life as His children
( 2 Cor. 1:22; Eph. 1:14). Than our experience of salvation will be complete when Christ returns ( Heb. 9:28) and the kingdom of God is fully revealed ( Matt. 13:41-43).
''All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.'' (Romans 3:23)
''We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way,'' (Isa. 53:6)
''The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.''
''Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment,'' (Heb. 9:27)
''For it is bt grace you have been saved, through faith-and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God- not by works, so that no one can boast,'' (Eph. 2:8-9)
''He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of His mercy,''
( Titus 3:5). Jesus pays the penalty for our sins by dying on the cross.
''But God demonstrates his own love for us in this; while we were still sinners, Christ die for us,'' ( Romans 5:8).
''For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God,'' ( 1 Peter 3:18).
''Yet to all who receive him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God,'' ( John 1:12).
''Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with Me,'' ( Revelation 3:20).
Our spirits will radiate the joy of salvation. In all that we think and do
And we won't get tired of doing God's will. For the Word of the Lord is true
Our relationship with God through prayer. Has a limitless supply of love
The majesty and power of the one who is king Will be given to us from above
He gave us freedom to give our fears
And our worries and problems to Him
That the chance of ever losing our faith
Through the Spirit of Love is slim
So, find a word that comes from God
And stand for His words are true
He says we should ask through prayer
When we don't know what to do
If our faith in God's love is consistent
He'll catch us if we fall
He'll provide solutions to all our problems
No matter how big or small
So rejoice in the Lord our father
And put a smile upon your face
For we'll soak ourselves in God's great glory And bask within His grace.
