What Is Salvation?
“Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God.” 1 John 5:1
What is salvation? It's not a creed.
You say, “Well, I believe the plan of salvation.” You can believe the plan of salvation and go straight to hell. You’re not saved by the plan of salvation; you’re saved by the Man of salvation.
Salvation is not a creed. It’s not a code.
You say, “Well, I believe if you live right, you’ll go to heaven.” If you could be saved by living right then Calvary was a blunder.
It’s not a cause.
You say, “I’m a member of a good, fundamental, Bible-believing church.” It’s not any of these things. It’s Christ.
Salvation is not believing something; it is receiving Someone. The true gospel is one that centers in Jesus Christ.
Ask God to give you a divine opportunity to boldly share Jesus with someone today. Maybe it’s a co-worker; maybe it’s your child. Maybe it’s a stranger that sits next to you at a restaurant. Be strong and of good courage; God will go before you to prepare the way.
