WHAT IS SALVATION?
If you are someone who has never heard of Salvation and “happened” upon this page, I welcome you . I will tell you a tiny bit about God, Jesus, Holy Spirit, Trinity, sacrifice, being a Christian and salvation.
To mature Christians, the glossary below may appear dull and not complete in their descriptions. My intention is not to overwhelm. As I continue in my blogs, you will see the true nature of the Trinity appear.
The Creator and ruler of the universe and the source of all moral authority, the Supreme being.
The Son of God, the Messiah, the Saviour of the world.
The Third person of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit is God as spirituality active in the world.
The Christian Godhead as one God in three, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit
A person who professes belief in Jesus Christ as the son of God and lives according to the teachings of Jesus.
A religious offering. In order for the animal to be counted as an offering, sacrifices needed to be born male, with no blemishes or wounds, no broken bones, in other words, being perfect in all ways.
A cleansing of sins through Jesus Christ, which will allow Christians to live life eternally in Heaven. Before Christ died, people were required to take a sacrifice of a specific animal or bird to the alter. The sacrifice was then killed by a Priest and that person’s sins were forgiven. This ritual took place often in a person’s life. Moving forward to Jesus…
God sent his Son Jesus to earth for us (see John 3:16). Throughout his lifetime on earth, Jesus was pure in all ways and is the only person to ever live a completely perfect life. At the end of his ministry, Jesus willingly died on the cross and then became a pure sacrifice for all men. The animals or birds were no longer needed. Jesus is now the only sacrifice needed for all people.
We are called to become a part of the Heavenly family by God, the Father, but our salvation (eternal life in Heaven) comes through Jesus, the Son. It doesn’t matter who we are, what race or nationality we are, what sins we have done in the past or what sins we are living in right now, He will accept us. It doesn’t matter how big or how small our sins are.
Jesus will come to us right where we are, when we say yes to accept the free gift of salvation. In order to receive the gift of forgiveness and salvation we must believe that Jesus is who the Bible says he is and we must be willing to live our lives in obedience to Him. Because of what Jesus accomplished by his crucifiction, he is our sacrificial lamb and all believers (Christians) can now enjoy a direct relationship with God.
