The Importance of Salvation
Do you understand the importance of your salvation? And do you understand the important role that you can play in the salvation of others? Hear God’s call on your life as a believer. I want to focus on your understanding of salvation and how you could have an impact on the salvation of others.
The most important condition of salvation is faith in Jesus Christ as the Son of God, who lived a perfect life, died for our sins, and rose from the dead on the third day, so that we might have a chance to receive salvation from hell, which every one of us was destined to go, if not for the opportunity given to us by the blood shed on the cross by Jesus Christ, who gave his life for us. Ephesians 2:8-10 says: “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”
Without grace and faith in God salvation is not possible. Whose grace? If this is a fallen world and we can produce nothing good apart from God, then this grace has to come from outside of us. This is God’s grace. Grace must come from the one you are indebted to.
The Importance of Grace and Faith
In order to have faith, you must first receive grace. Both grace and faith come from God. Saving grace was made possible through a one-time act of substitution, and faith is something God can produce in you through the Holy Spirit. So it is God who opens your eyes to His grace and gives you the means to have faith.
Through faith you believe that Jesus is who He said He is and that He did what the Bible said He did. You believe in Him for your salvation that He alone can remove death’s hold on you.
The result of salvation is good works
Those who are saved believe in Christ through faith alone by grace alone, and they continue to follow Jesus through obedience and good works. However, obedience and good works are not done in order to receive something or to climb the ladder higher than other believers. Followers of Christ obey and do good works because they are already loved; it is the response of a transformed soul to God’s existing and lasting love.
God gives us grace and the means to believe through faith, our faith is acted out through good works, which we do in obedience because of God’s great love for us. And we continue to live out our faith for God’s glory because we believe that what God has started in us, He will finish. Because God’s promises are true and lasting, we can have complete assurance in our salvation and our heavenly futures.
