Salvation- What is it, why do I need it and how do I get it?

Salvation- the act of saving or protecting from harm, risk, loss, destruction, etc.

Destruction, utter destruction is our fate. Is the price we pay for our sins without salvation. What is sin? In addition to the obvious sins such as murder, sin is anything that God convicts you in heart of, and you continue to do. We all sin (Romans 3:23, Eccl. 7:20). The bible says that the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23). So if we all have sinned, and the penalty for that sin is death, then we are doomed and need salvation.

Thankfully God has provided that salvation. Out of His love for us, he provided “payback” for us. If you look at it as a debt it might be easier to understand. We were bankrupt and in debt to God because of our sins. The only problem is that we can not pay that debt because of our nature, which has been flawed since the fall of man in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3:6-7). So we need someone to pay it for us. Enter Jesus. He lived a perfect life, without blame, so that he could die (penalty for sin) in our place. God made Him who had no sin to be sin for us, that in Him we might become the righteousness of God. 2 Cor 5:21 Jesus is God, who came in the form of a man, which is how He was able to live a perfect life.

So how do we obtain this salvation. Romans 10:9 gives us the answer. It says “That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” There it is. Get it right now, I’ll wait.






The next step, which will never end, is to get to know who Jesus is, and His teaching. The reason is that He tells us the greatest commandment is to love the Lord your God with all you heart, mind, strength, and soul (Matthew 22:37). And in connection with that He says “If you love me, you will obey what I command.” (John 14:15) To demonstrate your love for God, obey the teachings of Jesus His Son. So get a bible, get to know your savior.
