What is the nature of Salvation?
Salvation was prepared by God before the beginning of time (2 Tim 1:9). He spoke to our forefathers through the prophets on many occasions and in various ways (Heb 1:1-2).
The prophets searched intently with great diligence. Even angels long to look into these things (1 Pet 1:10,12). It is a great thing concerning all people (Lk 1:49, 2:10), prepared for all people (Lk 2:31).
Believing is the most important – but believing alone does not mean that we have received salvation grace. We still must receive it with faith. Faith urges us to accept salvation with action and to enter it. Salvation is not meaningless; its content includes forgiveness of sins and gift of life.
The two perspectives to nature of salvation:
1. Forgiveness of sin (Lk 1:77; Acts 5:31) : It resolves the problem of sins of which men cannot free themselves. “In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace.” (Eph 1:7) God does not count our sins against us (Rom 4:8). God credits righteousness to us apart from works (Rom 4:6). It is free justification, not wages for work (Rom 4:4).
2. Giving of life (Jn 10:10, 28; 5:40): also regarded as ‘gift of life (1 Pet 3:7). It resolves the problem of life that men cannot solve. Men die in sin – both physical and spiritual death. But whoever believes in the Son has eternal life (Jn 3:36); he has crossed over from death to life (Jn 5:24). Grace reigns through righteousness to bring life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Rom 5:21).
In summary, salvation offers us forgiveness of sins and eternal life.
