What is salvation? The topic of salvation is one of the most important topics in the bible. It lies at the foundation of the core message that the Bible teaches.
In this post I’ll be sharing some bible study notes on salvation followed by a list of very clear and definitive bible verses.
Bible Study Notes On SalvationThough the Bible was written over sixteen centuries by at least forty authors, it has one central theme–salvation through faith in Christ. Max lucado Click To Tweet
Below are four key points about salvation:
- For I was born a sinner, yes, from the moment my mother conceived me. Psalms 51:5 – we’re born with the inclination to sin.
- But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear. Isaiah 59:2 – Sin separates from God
- For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23 – Sin leads to death(Ezekiel 18:20), but accepting Jesus brings eternal life.
- For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out. John 3:16, Acts 3:19 – whoever believes and follows Christ will be saved. When we accept Christ and repent from a sinful life, we experience the power of Christ(conversion – through the power of the holy spirit) in our lives and we seek to live a Godly life.
Another important point to remember is that Salvation comes through Christ alone.Jesus is not one of many ways to approach God, nor is He the best of several ways; He is the only way. A. W. Tozer Click To Tweet
Bible Verses About Salvation
1 Corinthians 15:1-4
Let me now remind you, dear brothers and sisters, of the Good News I preached to you before. You welcomed it then, and you still stand firm in it. It is this Good News that saves you if you continue to believe the message I told you—unless, of course, you believed something that was never true in the first place. I passed on to you what was most important and what had also been passed on to me. Christ died for our sins, just as the Scriptures said. He was buried, and he was raised from the dead on the third day, just as the Scriptures said.
2 Timothy 3:15
And that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever. The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.
1 Peter 1:18,19
For you know that God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors. And it was not paid with mere gold or silver, which lose their value. It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God.(NLT)
For the grace of God has been revealed, bringing salvation to all people. And we are instructed to turn from godless living and sinful pleasures. We should live in this evil world with wisdom, righteousness, and devotion to God, while we look forward with hope to that wonderful day when the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will be revealed. He gave his life to free us from every kind of sin, to cleanse us, and to make us his very own people, totally committed to doing good deeds.
Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip. For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward; How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;
