To comprehend our requirement for salvation, we should initially comprehend our remaining before God. The Apostle Paul writes in Romans that all have trespassed and missed the mark regarding the brilliance of God (Romans 3:23), just as that there is nobody equitable (Romans 3:10). We are largely delinquents who are meriting God’s fury and judgment. In the event that nothing changes about our profound condition, we will die for all of forever in a spot called hellfire (Matthew 14:32; Revelation 21:8). Fortunately, there is awful news! but first, we should analyze the uplifting news.
The Good News
There is salvation in Jesus Christ and in Him alone: “There is salvation in nobody else, for there could be no other name under paradise given among men by which we should be saved” (Acts 4:12)! In Christ, the visually impaired can see (Luke 4:18), the dead can live (John 11:25), and the lost are discovered (Luke 19:10). Jesus took care of our wrongdoings with His blood when He kicked the bucket on the cross. In any case, He didn’t remain dead! He rose once more, crushing the force of transgression and demise (1 Corinthians 15:55-57). Indeed, we are for the most part delinquents, however, we have a Savior! The Bible is certain that every individual who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved (Romans 10:13). Have you called upon the name of Jesus in confidence? Today is the day of salvation (2 Corinthians 6:2)!
The Bible additionally says that we are profoundly dead in view of our wrongdoing: “For the wages of transgression is dead… ” (Romans 6:23), “And you were dead in the sins and sins in which you once strolled, following the course of this world” (Ephesians 2:1-2). We need salvation so we can genuinely live the way that God proposed for us to live. It is incomprehensible for a profoundly dead individual to know God and trust in His Word.
Some may say that God’s judgment is unmerited or even low, yet this is essentially false. God’s judgment is acceptable on the grounds that He is forever acceptable (Psalm 106:1). He proclaims what is correct and what’s up. We need salvation since we are profoundly visually impaired without it (2 Corinthians 4:3-4). Our profound eyes should be opened to see and comprehend God’s sacredness and greatness (Acts 9:18; Ephesians 1:18). Moreover, they should be opened in light of the fact that God has called us to be sacred as He is blessed (1 Peter 1:16).
Without salvation, we are additionally lost. We do not have any bearing and reason throughout everyday life; there is a goliath void that we can’t fill all alone. The Word of God says that like sheep we have all gone off to some far-away place (Isaiah 53:6). We frantically need a Shepherd who will manage and secure us.
